The Folder Object

edit folder object XoWiki versions up to 0.125 created so-called folder-objects that allowed programmatical configuration. These folder-objects were used only seldomly in applications. Although folder-objects were a very powerful construct (one could write methods to obtain per-instance different configuration values), these objects have the disadvantage, that they are only usable for side-wide admins, since they allow to execute Tcl-code entered by package-admins. If package-admins should not have the power to enter code (as it is often the case for huge sites), this configuration option becomes useless. XoWiki version 0.125 introduced three new package parameters WidgetSpecs, PackageTitle and PackageDescription to cover the most important configuration options from folder-objects.
