In the current post I share my best practices, how you can maintain JS and CSS in a K2 application, so that it is reusable and can be easily found and maintained by you or your colleagues.

This article will demonstrate, how you can run forms validation with multiple views, showing only 1 message before submitting the form. This is one of the most frequent requirements from the customer. And even though this approach is applied inside K2 SmartStarters , not so many developers are aware of it.
The post is mostly about List views, which you do not want to edit inline due to other requirements or validation complexity. And therefore you need a subview to be able to create/edit/view List view items. So how do you reuse subviews for Create/Edit/View functionality.
I decided to implement something else with ReactJS and below I will describe how to create a ReactJS control in K2 to display Carousel of images. The approach was tested in K2 Five and I assume should also work in the K2 Cloud. This is especially great for K2 Cloud, where you do not have any possibility to implement a custom control. Another nice thing about this approach is that ReactJS will load the images from the SmartObjects, exposed through the SmartObject OData API.
I was always thinking about how I can make the forms in K2 even nicer, than they are. And what if we can add a context video to certain standard applications? I will show you how you can easily achieve that.
I have been a fan of ReactJs for some time so far. I like the idea, that, as well as in K2, you can also create reusable components, even though the framework allows more customizations. K2 cannot be used to build single page applications, but nobody said it is not allowed to use ReactJs to create nice UI or layouts. In this post I will show you, how you can use ReactJs to build a masonry layout for images, stored in a SmartObject. The ReactJs component will get the images from K2 and render them in a nice responsive way. By the way, the approach is also suitable for K2 Cloud, where you cannot install any custom controls.
In this post I will tell you about popup animations in K2 and how to add more fun into a K2 Smartform. You can either inject CSS/JS onto your form,…
Recently I had an internal discussion within my team, that K2 Smartforms has a limited number of icons, that a user can use with the out-of-the-box controls, like buttons or data labels. We all agreed, that we need more. However, even if we have 1000 icons to be used with buttons, some other customers will always require more or something totally different. Therefore, I decided to write a short article to demonstrate, how you can quickly and easily add icon fonts in K2 to get almost unlimited number of icons for your purposes.
