Let me put it another way: I might want to give someone permission to adjust those settings, but maybe I wouldn’t want to grant access to files! As it is now, if I use an editor he wouldn’t even know what the values are, he would ask me and I would either have to waste time looking for the settings or having him study the Strapi documentation.
The admin panel sais only:
It automatically generates multiple formats (large, medium, small) of the uploaded asset
So, IMHO Strapi must separate these two concerns: the development of the Strapi project and the use of Strapi by using the following principle:
- If it’s not in the admin panel … it doesn’t exist!
So-called “customization” by modifying files must disappear, and even if something can be customized that something must be able to be done also through the admin panel.
I hope the plugin API isn’t just an extension of the same old way of doing things…
