TYPO free


fighting for TYPO free code

MindState - Michiel Roos


My name is Michiel Roos. I currently work for MaxServ in Holland. I like tech stuff like Linux, TYPO3, Gumstix and Roombas but I also like to dig in the dirt and try to grow veggies and other things. Some of you may know me as author of nc_staticfilecache and maintainder of the DAM project.

But why?

Well . . . I like code without typo's. It just runs better ;-)

Switching the baseURL

Fri, 27 Jun 2008

A couple of weeks ago I thought the price of the mobile pipes and tubes had come down far enough to give them a try. So I went over to the local pipes and tubes distributor and shackled myself to a year-long agreement with them. I was totally happy the first train trip home, doing a video chat with Ben. All seemed to work quite. . .more »

TYPO3 housekeeping part 2

Thu, 26 Jun 2008

So here we are again. I hope you have gotten the hang of cleaning your TYPO3 installation and are reaping the benefits. If you are like me, you dont like to repeat yourself. All this typing on the command line, can't we automate this? The vacume cleaner in the image here cleans your rooms on its own. We would like TYPO3 to do that too. The problem is that we are not sure if. . .more »

TYPO3 housekeeping

Wed, 25 Jun 2008

When you run a TYPO3 installation for several months you tend to create and delete a lot of pages and a lot of page content. Relations between elements are created and severed. When pages and records are deleted in TYPO3, they are not really deleted from the database. The 'deleted' field in the table is merely set to 1. So over time your table will accumulate a lot of deleted records. It can also happen that you remove a page that is pointed to. . .more »

Rethinking the realurl mod_rewrite rules

Sun, 22 Jun 2008

TYPO3 ships with a default .htaccess file and also with a simplified version in the /misc directory. Both files contain a mod_rewrite setup to help you set up your site so your content can be reached using nice readable URI's. The default _.htaccess file that you can get from the TYPO3 dummy package has always worked for me. I have never had any trouble setting up realurl using this file and thus never gave it a lot of attention. Last week. . .more »

Optimizing TYPO3 backend responsiveness

Thu, 5 Jun 2008

During the last months I attended to excellent meetings. One was the TYPO3DD08 and the other was the "Dirty Handson Session" (Forelle ist geil!). During the last session we worked on HCI issues in Arnhem @ the Netcreators office together with Ben van 't Ende, Benjamin Mack, Jens Hoffmann, Patrick Broens, Steffen Kamper and me. We had a lot of fun and made a good start improving the backend step by step. During the last session I made some minor. . .

TYPO3 sanity check

Thu, 24 May 2007

Some days ago I got fed up with running across odd configuration settings on our servers. We run several servers with a lot of TYPO3 installations. It would be really nice to be able to see the status of all installations at a glance. So I started out writing a shell script with a lot of grep and cut commands. Soon I realised that I would be a lot quicker writing the script in ruby. Still later I realized that turning it into a TYPO3 extension. . .more »

A new Text Highlighter is born

Wed, 23 May 2007

A couple of days ago I wrote a nice ruby script to check our server. The script reads all the vhost files, extracts the DocumentRoot's and searches the paths it finds. It checks if a TYPO3 installation is there and if so, does a sanity check on that installation. I wanted to share this script with you and thought it would be very nice to display it on a page in all it's highlighted glory. Only . . . the code highlighter in the 'extdeveval' does. . .more »

I know I know . .

Sat, 5 May 2007

There's not a lot of useful stuff on here yet . . . I want to put some time into converting and modding a nice theme first. Then I may try to post some useful articles on here. I would like to post some tutorials about (for example):

  • how to build a preview tree structure using a data array
  • how to write a 'clickmenu' backend extension
And maybe write about some other stuff that interests me. . .more »
