Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-2177) Poor use of screen real-estate
Date Tue, 11 Mar 2014 20:08:43 GMT


Sue Lockwood commented on COUCHDB-2177:

This is going to be addressed in the next UI update.  The first round was to build it out
and get user testing done.  We got that feedback and we have new comps to implement. 

Unfortunately I don't have them handy to post to here.

> Fauxton is a HUGE improvement on the UX for CouchDB.  However, the editor uses, optimistically,
20% of the available screen-space effectively:

> Obviously, this will be an ongoing task, but I would like to propose an adjustment in
thinking about the map/reduce screen: we should focus on making map/reduce jobs not easier
to edit but [learnable|].  
> I would suggest a live editing feature which pre-populates a small sample set of documents
and updates interactively according to the map/reduce job (inspired by [debuggex's cool debugging
interface |] for regex queries).  As a beginning, I would suggest
basic syntax highlighting which corresponds to fields in the actual example documents.  Eventually,
this would lead to more complex highlighting of correlations between actions in the code editor
and the docs themselves.
