For the past few weeks I have been working on a plugin that defines new topic lists (there is going to be a new topic list for each user which is going to contain only user’s favorite categories). I am developing this new feature as a plugin and now I got to the part where I have to hook into the client-side. There are a few issues here.
I noticed that right now, the current topic lists are “hard-coded” in the sense that there are a few filters that can be applied to categories and tags. This is a issue, because for example to fetch more topics, the client generates some links following a few rules.
Adding new routes in Ember JS is not possible from a plugin, because Ember JS does not allow adding more rules at “run-time”.
There is also no list support for multiple categories or tags, but I think this would be nice (similar to multi-reddits on Reddit). Somehow, this is basically what I am trying to do, but more limited. However, I would like to implement my plugin with this possibility in mind.
Hooking into the navigation bar is a huge pain.
To be honest I am not really sure what you could do to help me, but if you have comments about this, please post. I will greatly appreciate this.
