Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-918) Create a dazzling web ui for cassandra
Date Wed, 31 Mar 2010 18:19:27 GMT


Pablo Cuadrado commented on CASSANDRA-918:


My idea on the GUI was to develop at first a communication mechanism/layer, providing both
JMX and Thrift functionalities, in order to achieve monitoring and querying capabilities like
most DB web UIs do.

It would be good to know which features are most desirable, to develop a roadmap. Please comment
any opinion/idea on this matter!

As for the language, personally, I don't mind if it's PHP or Python, BUT: I care about running
the project in a language which is familiar to the Cassandra community. I wouldn't like to
build a PHP UI which seems like a foreign member standing outside the Cassandra umbrella.

About Flex, in my experience, I don't see it as  "flexible" as HTML/CSS/Javascript (the usual
suspects on the client side) are. For instance, HTML runs on different devices/platforms/browsers
almost the same way, or by tweaking some CSS and Javascript (think iPhone, Blackberry, Android,
netbooks, etc).

Nowadays, with modern browser is easy to have graphs updated on the run with any need of refresh.
Take a look at YUI Charts polling mechanisms:

These are flash implementations but can also be done via javascript very easily.
