Last two weeks were about implementing initial version of an Osm Admin grid, integrating it seamlessly with the editing form, and enabling mass-editing of multiple objects.

After finishing it, I realized that Osm Admin had become bigger than Osm Framework! To keep up, I started writing docs for it.

And now, you have a step-by-step guide for creating a project, adding Osm Admin to it and a practical example of an admin area that you can copy to your project and try it out locally.

The last 4 weeks were mostly a vacation. It's been a time for reflection, but still, I delivered some new features.

In Osm Admin, forms already allow creating new objects and saving them to the database, and editing one or several existing objects.

I've also implemented URL query filters that are applied to the underlying database query and that can be displayed in the user interface.

From now on, Osm Framework and all projects built with it - can be installed and developed under Apache and on Windows.

Osm Admin: Filters

In the user interface, you can narrow displayed data using grid column filters, or filters displayed in the sidebar. To enable that, apply #[Filter\*] attributes to class properties.

Applied filters appear in the URL query parameters, for example, .../edit?id=5+16+19, and on the page.

You can apply filters not only to a grid page, but also to a form page - to mass edit all matching objects, or to an action URL (edit, delete, or custom) - to perform the action on all matching objects.

In the same way, you can apply filters to the API URLs in order to retrieve or modify matching objects in a script.
