[Bug 240432] [NEW] "List" macro in templates
You have been subscribed to a public bug:
We sometimes need to list items in the UI that are short enough to
render as running text, but have enough templating in them not to belong
in browser code.
A single macro ought to let us generate comma-separated lists of things
that each take fmt:url and such to render.
Advanced versions could do things like add an "and" where appropriate
("x and y" but also "x, y, and z"); cut the list short with an ellipsis
if it gets too long ("alpha, beta, gamma, delta, epsilon, zeta, ...");
let the user "fold" long lists; or provide other navigation aids.
mpt has been using "tal:comma" for cases where he'd want a macro like
this, so if we ever implement this, grep the templates for that.
