Prettier embeds for your audio files in Neos CMS.
Prettier embeds for your Audio sources in Neos CMS
Most of the time you have to make small adjustments to a package (e.g. configuration in
Settings.yaml). Because of that, it is important to add the corresponding package to the composer from your theme package. Mostly this is the site packages located under
Packages/Sites/. To install it correctly go to your theme package (e.g.
Packages/Sites/Foo.Bar) and run following command:
composer require jonnitto/prettyembedaudio --no-update
--no-update command prevent the automatic update of the dependencies. After the package was added to your theme
composer.json, go back to the root of the Neos installation and run
composer update. Et voilà! Your desired package is now installed correctly.
What are the differences from the PrettyEmbed series to Jonnitto.Plyr?
|Advanced captions for native video||✓|
|Filesize (JS & CSS)||smaller||bigger|
All packages from the PrettyEmbed series have the benefit of a better frontend performance since the player gets only loaded on request. So, no iframe/video get's loaded until the user wants to watch a video or listen to audio.
If you want to customize the default settings, take a look at the Settings.Jonnitto.yaml file. If no node property is giving, these default values will be taken. If you, for example, don't want to let the editor choose if the video should open in a lightbox you can deactivate the mixin in your Configuration folder like this:
'Jonnitto.PrettyEmbedAudio:Content.Audio': superTypes: 'Jonnitto.PrettyEmbedHelper:Mixin.Loop': true
These are the available mixins:
||Enables the inspector groups||✓|
||Loop the audio, defaults to
If you want to use the player as a pure component, you can use the
Jonnitto.PrettyEmbedAudio:Component.Audio Fusion prototype.
If you want to read the node properties and let the package handle all for you, you should use the
Jonnitto.PrettyEmbedAudio:Content.Audio prototype. For easier including in your own node types, you can disable the content element wrapping with
contentElement = false. This is useful if you want to create for example a text with audio node type.
