Well, let me explain it's "birth": I wanted the user to be able to override the new (and old) config options for every single video. Using explicit parameters for that, would have resulted in 7 (!) parameters. So I thought, it would be a good idea to gather all the options in a single parameter. I've used the "URL syntax" as this seems to be something many webmasters are familiar with. Then I wanted to document the syntax in the manual Listing all the options with which values are allowed; the general form of the syntax; and all the gory details -- that's probably not easy to explain to anybody who isn't familiar with the "URL syntax". And as I rather like to program than to write documentation, I decided to write the "call builder".bca wrote:I could see the Call Builder was a "work in progress".
Of course, it could be improved in several ways: styling, offering help tooltips, the selection of the resulting plugin call and easier reachability. All this should happen along the way to the first RC.
