Blueprint editor#20

A visual editor for blueprints, which would administrate all the yaml settings for you.

This would really help speed up kirby dev, I always mess up the yml indentation and live in the field docs.

A visual editor which shows all possibilities, depending on the fieldtype, would really speed up the whole building-process for new websites. For now, i always have to switch between searching the docs, editing the blueprint and reload the panel.

It would also be interesting to edit blueprints from within the actual page view. Like changing field order in the panel directly.

Oh, my, goodness, yes please. I would love this. I dislike editing YAML or trying to remember how to structure blueprints or what options are available for each field/structure/extends/defaults/templates/etc., etc. This is an awesome idea.

The concept of coding up the blueprints is a plus in my book. I found that a visual builder gets very clicky (e.g. lots of click, inputs, selects, clicks… ) Ever use Processwire? Coding those blueprints does require some referencing from time to time, but it’s very fast and efficient (plus ditches any bloat required to make that process visual).

@Chris I guess this will not change, you can still edit manually.

@Chris I’ve used processwire and statamic and both offer a very helpful visual interface for creating blueprints - i really like them!

Too many times I do loose a lot of time to get the yml files right.

What I like about Kirby is that there is no visual editor for blueprint, easier to copy paste, edit directly in code editor… but if we can do both, why not !

@Tristan Bagot sure, you’re much faster editing a single text-file. But if you have to build complex blueprints from scratch, it would be a huge timesaver, having a failsave UI.

I’m with @Tristan Bagot on this one; and what’s a “failsafe UI” anyway? ;)

Also with @Tristan Bagot here. Except that If this would suck up too much development time ressources, i’m opposed to this feature.
Love the way blueprints work, it’s so fast to create fields for the panel with a text editor.

This sounds like a great idea for a plug-in.
