Subject [jira] [Created] (AIRFLOW-164) Disable the web UI's page load animations
Date Mon, 23 May 2016 09:48:12 GMT
Bence Nagy created AIRFLOW-164:

             Summary: Disable the web UI's page load animations
                 Key: AIRFLOW-164
             Project: Apache Airflow
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: ui
    Affects Versions: Airflow 1.7.1
            Reporter: Bence Nagy

Alright, some people might disagree, looking forward to the discussion here. Basically my
qualm is that opening almost any page (even the DAGs list) will trigger an animation where
the content kinda swoops in from the left/the top/the top-left corner. This gets pretty annoying
for a few reasons:

- It takes around half a second before the content is visually parsable, and these half seconds
accumulate pretty quick when doing lots of administration.
- This makes visual diffing when refreshing or editing the URL impossible. If the animations
weren't firing, it would be possible to refresh for instance the tree view of a complicated
DAG and just see the treemap change, making the differences obvious. Currently you need to
commit the state to memory and then recall it after the animation has finished to try and
figure out what has changed.
- I think it just makes no sense from a design point of view anyway to have all this data
sliding around the screen. It's not like it passes off as a transition animation or anything.

What does everyone else think?
