    Smile Timeline for Silverstripe!? Link to this post

    Hey,
    i try to integrate the Smile Timeline to Silverstripe. (http://www.simile-widgets.org/timeline/)
    Usually the data for the Timeline comes from a XML or JSON File, but i would like to get them from the Database.

    I created a TimelineEventPage where the user can add some events. But how can I read and use the Data for the Timeline in the java script?

    The following code is loading the "timeline.xml" file with the event-data. how should I change the code to get the data from silverstripe?

    <script ....

    . . .
    tl = Timeline.create(document.getElementById("my-timeline"), bandInfos);
    tl.loadJSON("timeline.xml?"+ (new Date().getTime()), function(json, url) {
    eventSource.loadJSON(json, url);
       
    </script>

    The XML-file:

    <data
    wiki-url="http://simile.mit.edu/shelf/"
    wiki-section="Simile JFK Timeline">
    <event
    start="Sat May 20 1961 00:00:00 GMT-0600"
    title="'Bay of Pigs' Invasion">
    </event>
    <event
    start="Wed May 01 1963 00:00:00 GMT-0600"
    end="Sat Jun 01 1963 00:00:00 GMT-0600"
    isDuration="true"
    title="Oswald moves to New Orleans">
    Oswald moves to New Orleans, and finds employment at the William <!-- The event's description -->
    B. Riley Coffee Company. &lt;i&gt;ref. Treachery in Dallas, p 320&lt;/i&gt;
    </event>
    <event>
    ...
    </event>
    </data>

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks Ben

    Probably not of interest to you now Noki, but for future reference there is an SS module for timeline...
