Adding new tabs to 4.14

Dear friends, we are working on the integration of our external modules (the ssh console, uchiwa & so on) in sunstone. It seems that some additional steps are needed after adding the relevant .js tabs files and extending the sunstone yaml file. Is there any quick process to do so? I would be happy to contribute to the documentation in a longer form afterwards for anyone interested in the process.
(by the way, 4.14 is absolutely great.)

Dear Carlo,

We are changing the mechanism to include external tabs in Sunstone for one 4.14.1, therefore I would wait for this version to be released. There will be a documented example for adding the AppMarket tabs, but basically the steps will be the following:

  • Modularize the tab using requirejs
  • Include the new tab in the main.js file where the dependencies are defined
  • Generate a new minified file including the new tabs using the grunt task.
  • Extend the sunstone yaml files


Wonderful, many thanks. Will happily wait for 4.14.1.
