Subject [DISCUSSION] Remove Logs module from Fauxton
Date Fri, 23 May 2014 16:10:02 GMT
Hi devs,

The situation around Logs module looks like the following:

1. Current UX is bad - it requires a lot of work and time to get fixed;
2. After BigCouch merge the /_log resource will be gone (and all the
work that had done for it too);
3. With BigCouch merge lager module comes which is able to streams
logs to custom aggregation systems like LogStash. These systems are
more powerful in question of logs analysis and monitoring than Fauxton
could ever provide;
4. The last release of 1.x series will have LTS status which means
that it'll receive only bug fixes and security updates. Probably, with
one exception in face of Fauxton to make users migration more smooth.
Since Fauxton evolves very fast, it would be awesome to pick his
changes back to LTS Fauxton teams will be happy to reduce amount of
things which only works for some single branch (2.x or 1.x) and the
/_log resource is the only of such.

In overall, there left no strong reasons to continue improve Fauxton
Logs module. May be remove it and close all the related tickets as
Won't Fix? It's a pity to say that, but the reality is hard. What do
you think about?
