Subject [DISCUSS] CloudStack UI enhancements and Plugin framework
Date Mon, 06 Jul 2015 10:47:37 GMT

I’m trying to implement a UI plugin for the Quota service feature [1], but could not find
any useful documentation on the UI codebase except for this wiki:

Do we have any documentation on the UI codebase anywhere?

I’m able to implement a UI plugin but it assumes that all views start with a list view and
then elements in it can have views with tabs such as details etc. Is there a way I can start
with a tab view directly, for example when someone clicks on the UI plugin it opens to a tabbed
view, where each tab can render their specific html template? (see the Quota FS [1] for screenshot/mockup)

The plugin framework activates when at least one plugin is enabled, this renders a generic
plugin tab on the left navigation which renders a list of available plugins when clicked.
This makes sense if you have huge number of plugins but this is awful if you’re using one
or two. If I just have one plugin I need to click on the plugins tab on the left nav bar,
then click on the plugin to access it. Should we do something like, render list of plugins
on the left nav bar if the length is say less than 3-4 (a small number)?
