    Is it worth removing STK dependencies?
    #1 by magnolia-ti8m on Feb 21, 2017 10:13:30 AM

    Hello all,

    currently, we have a blog based on blog module and STK. Now, we would like to add some other sections and features and we are wondering if it's worth removing all the STK dependencies.
    What is the end of life plan about STK? What alternatives can we use?
    Here there is a quick list of main points where we depend on STK:
    - Blog features (Magnolia’s blog module itselft depend on STK)
    o Blog entry page
    o Blog entries list page (filtering, sorting articles)
    - Pagination (currently handled by STKPager)
    - Searching feature (Make use of STK classes)
    o Query to search items (SearchResultModel)
    o Results extraction and highligting (SearchResultItem)

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi magnolia-ti8m,

    What version of Magnolia are you using?

    While I don't think there exists strictly an EOL policy for STK (there is an EOL policy for Magnolia generally), I wonder if there is anything you can do right now with STK that you could not do by jumping to MTE? The official Magnolia line is that there will be no further development on STK.

    Your other questions will be easier to answer after you've looked at those links and we know what version you're on or plan to move to.

    Warm Regards,
    Bradley Andersen
