Subject RE: Proposal: Cordova Plugin Search
Date Mon, 15 Jun 2015 18:07:05 GMT
Before I went ahead with the new page I've spent some time thinking about ways to improve our
current search page (http://plugins.cordova.io/#/search?search=camera). The new site (http://people.apache.org/~muratsu/)
isn't that big of a departure from the old one but has couple new UEX ideas. 

I must tell - I'm a huge fan of cards paradigm. Compared to tables it takes a bit more screen
real estate but is much more elegant, expressive and easy to customize. Also below are some
additional reasons why I preferred a new design:

1) In the old design we didn't have to display author as plugin names included the orgs. E.g.
com.phonegap.plugins.barcodescanner. With npm, we need to grab the author name and display
it next to plugin name.
2) I like the old filter by platform and got plans to add filtering in the future. But I also
think we should be displaying platforms as small badges next to plugins. This helps with discoverability
and encourages plugins with no tags to add them.
3) Bunch of extra information, such as last updated and license is also useful to see before
going to details of a plugin. I personally find them useful but that's just me.

Why we can't re-use some of the web app code that currently uses the cpr I like the UI, just
change how to query the data logic to npm
