HandyMan Icon


By Mark Hamstra (markh)

HandyMan is a mobile optimized Manager for MODX, based on the open source and awesome jQuery Mobile Framework. It allows you to easily update Resource content from a mobile device, optionally using a Textile integration for richtext content (read how to enable it).

Version 1.0.0-rc1 specific:

HandyMan 1.0.0-rc1 is the first public release of HandyMan, which means I'm expecting a lot of bug reports people! I want to know about what your first impression is, what bugs you may have encountered and what features you would like to see added in the future. You can report them at the bugtracker.

HandyMan has not been extensively tested with the upcoming Revolution 2.2, though some quick tests were positive. HandyMan is currently compatible with 2.0.8, however you really should update MODX to the latest stable version, and 2.0 support is not likely to stick around for a long time.

Version 1.0.0-rc2 specific

This version is a bugfix release. See the changelog.
