Main changes:

  • Mobile/Responsive Navigation (works also with the accessible Dropdown menu)
  • Shinybuttons/Slidindoor is replaced with one simple "Horizontal Navigation" (the old styles are kept on an upgrade)

  • Added support for dynamic JS/CSS
  • Feature to create an custom installable JYAML package (see: Administration)
  • and many many other small changes and improvements.


Also checkout the updated Documentation.

If you like JYAML and the free support it would be very nice when you send a small Donation via Paypal or purchase a project license for your next project. You know the licenses are for lifetime, no annual subscriptions. I am only a single developer and there is no rich company behind. This would be very helpful for further development. Thank you!

YAML 4 was released in January. That was very close after the first JYAML 4 release. That's a reason why currently JYAML based on YAML 3.

Currently the work for JYAML 4.5.0 is in progress (~80-90% finished) and a first version of a migration script for YAML3 to YAML4 is in work, too.

But the next thing is...
On 12th June, Joomla! has blogged here official information's and release dates for the coming Joomla! 3.0. The stable release is planned on 15th September and comes with Twitter Bootstrap as base HTML/CSS-Framework.

What does this mean for YAML 4 integration?

In this case JYAML with the YAML4 integration will be public as close as possible -after- the Joomla! 3.0 stable release to avoid duplicate working processes.

jQuery, Twitter Bootstrap?

Joomla! 3.0 comes with the Twitter Bootstrap CSS/HTML Framework, that requires jQuery. So I've decided to convert all MooTools scripts as jQuery Plugins in a most compatible way.

Is an Upgrade/Migration possible?

Basicly YES.

  • Migration script from YAML3 to YAML4 is in development: The migration script does search and replace all required CSS classes (files and database) to the new YAML 4 version including backups for restore. So the most things can be done automatically, i hope. But minor manual changes in most cases will always be necessary.
  • Update from Joomla! 2.5 to Joomla! 3.0: Currently i don't know exactly how the Joomla changes the core CSS classes and component templates. But i think someone write a guide in the Joomla! Documentation Wiki. Here, i think, are the most manual adjustments will be necessary, regardless of JYAML. This can say no one exactly for now.

In summary

  • JYAML 4.5.0 with YAML4 is in development and will be released as close as possible to the Joomla! 3.0 release.
  • A migration script from YAML3 to YAML4 is included in the upgrade process.
  • All MooTools scripts will be converted to jQuery Plugins.
