  • Alex T⚜️ should be able to explain it better on this one, but my perspective is that these are kind of sanitised service calls, which can be used (by Permissions-based users levels) in content modules or content-generating blocks. So, instead of using service calls / API directly and programming them into your UI (web or native) you can actually still use the visual page-building interface in Studio, and mix in service calls that are safe and functional within given context.

    So, to that effect, you can create page with new combinations of functionality even if modules or system don't provide such blocks or layouts. 

    Potentially (this is where I know that AlexT will be getting grumpy :D) it could be a page with your own css-grid layout, own unique positioning of menus, feeds, browsing results, cards, you name it.

    • That is quite promising at least for my particular use case as I have spent many many nights trying to force a solution in which I wish to extend the functionality of my site, in a consistent UX whether web or native, that is outside of the modules that are currently available from UNA or Third parties and not possessing the time or likely skill necessary to build my own custom modules, I feel like PWA's filled that gap for me but over the many many nights its just been a pile of failure from UX to expected functionality in part because of the current limitations.

      • Magic is the right word indeed. I welcome all these good ideas, however tell me that you do not intend to integrate it in v11? Because I think what Will wants to say is that we look forward to it and that already in the state it seems quite heavy. Maybe you should clarify what is the program, for now it's a bit rough in my head, especially since you also talked about JotReact and as we said before, we also like to hold our informed members about the future. Not very clear for now ...

          Correct, it's all good with new ideas, but I guess it is what it is. Who knows.
