Migrating from xaction to better/newer technologies

Question asked by Daniel Burnier de Castro on Mar 12, 2018



I have a lot of .xaction files, with complex queries, javascript code and widgets for user inputs. Each of these .xaction files is linked to a report file (prpt), which is adapted for presentation of a report, depending on parameters passed by the user.


Since .xaction files are deprecated and offer very poor debugging posibilities, I would like to exchange them for another technology. What would you recommend? I was thinking about CTools (writing HTML, CSS and JS); however, since all my reports are only simple tables, I don't know if the dashboard solution would be the best option.


I also do not want to use only prpt files, since that would reduce my flexibility.


Any ideas?

thank you
