  1. I have been using Github Copilot for a month now and I love it. It is actually very close to pair coding. Colleague who point out your mistakes, remembers function names better than you do, does actually know regexp and also makes silly suggestions and mistakes.

    With Chatgpt I noticed great use case with a list of numbers I had. They were copy pasted from somewhere and formatting those, reading into code/excel and doing some needed calculations (like avg, median and range) would have taken 5-15 mins of my time.

    Now it was super fast and easy. AI didn't care about extra spaces and quotes, it did just understand the numbers and knew the math. I just delegated the task and got response back.

    It did made one silly and strange mistake (427,00 => 4270,00), but after pointing that out everything was correct.

  2. Great additions - many of these are things that we have setup our own solutions when hitting performance issues on large scale (10 000+ pages with lots of fields) so it is great to see core supporting this kind of things. Thank you Ryan!

    Quick note on findRaw - it looks like it doesn't support parent? It would be very powerful to be using parent just like any normal field based page relation.

  3. I think this is probably because in Finnish it is pretty rare to see L after P - I think probably only in words that come directly from foreign languages, like application => applikaatio etc.

    Very frustrating, maybe we should have a module that adds tempalte as an alias for template... ?

  4. After 9 years using ProcessWire I still do multiple times a day a typo writing template as tempalte (probably write it wrong more often than right). I know few of my co-workers does the same. Is this curse for us Finnish people, or is tempalte thing in other parts of the world also?

  5. Yes, I think you are probably right with both of your reasons. I did try to make pagelist work with pagination (it does, but couldn't get limit to be set dynamically, so it follows whatever is set on pagelist module which defaults to 50). It seems that I wont need pagination at all on dashboard (more proof for your point 1), but if the need arises I will definitely take a closer look into it.

  6. I generally prefer modules not to "pollute" anything with fields and templates. I believe it is also quite a rare need for modules to really to create pages, templates and fields.

    Of course you generally don't get "turnkey solutions" this way, but more lower level modules and building blocks. For simple example: any modules related to event calendars are just tools to help you build event calendars (render helpers, fieldtypes etc) until they actually create templates and fields for you.

  7. @bernhard just created a new PR for basic language support (creating new languages and setting translation files for a language). Usage inside migrations is simple:

    $finnish = $rm->addNewLanguage("finnish", "Finnish");

    Or if you just want to set translations to default language:
