  1. Use ReactJS/GraphQL for all CMS interfaces

    With the 4.0 release, we've redeveloped the "assets" section in ReactJS, and created a new "campaigns" section on the same foundations. We've previously blogged about why that's a good idea: https://www.silverstripe.org/blog/cutting-through-the-noise-why-silverstripe-4-will-use-reactjs/

    Major sections like "pages" or "security" are still based on jQuery/Entwine logic, with minor bits of ReactJS sprinkled in (e.g. the new TreeDropdownField ReactJS component). In order to provide a consistent developer experience in the CMS, we need to finish this transition.

    The CMS UI has often been heavily customised through jQuery/Entwine, so this transition will require many modules to rewrite view logic. It's important to ensure that the…

    • Use vector icons for all icons in the CMS

      Currently, adding new icons for either the site tree or a custom model admin interface is a little complicated. They icons also aren't optimized for retina.
      When choosing between the standard available icons inside of framework/admin/images/menu-icons, you can choose between 11 different ones. By using a vector font like font awesome for this, you'd be able to choose between hundreds of icons by default, and they would be ready for retina.

      • Column or block content editing

        Right now Content in the core CMS is either "a big lump of HTML" or "a set of carefully defined fields".

        There are lots of modules that try and add content modules / blocks / columns to SilverStripe CMS, but none have really taken off.

        We should add the ability for Content to be managed in a more modular way than just "big lump of text".
