Subject [jira] [Created] (BROOKLYN-104) Brooklyn landing page on a clean install is unhelpful
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2014 14:16:12 GMT
Richard Downer created BROOKLYN-104:

             Summary: Brooklyn landing page on a clean install is unhelpful
                 Key: BROOKLYN-104
             Project: Brooklyn
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 0.7.0-M1
            Reporter: Richard Downer

When starting from a clean install of Brooklyn (no catalog.xml, minimal,
the first visit to the Brooklyn console will pop up the 'create application' dialog. Without
a catalog this is basically an empty white box! For a first-time user unfamiliar with Brooklyn,
this behaviour is unhelpful and does not suggest to a user a natural course of action to take.

Possible solutions:
- if the catalog is empty, display an appropriate message instead and suggest that the user
use the YAML tab instead
- don't pop up the 'create application' dialog by default
