Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-2177) Poor use of screen real-estate
Date Fri, 07 Nov 2014 23:01:35 GMT

Zachary Lym commented on COUCHDB-2177:
--------------------------------------

Sue, not sure if you really need to wait for a major UI update.  Just collapsing the fields
above and below the textarea to a single row and reducing the size in the sidebar would get
you most of the way there.

> 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|http://worrydream.com/LearnableProgramming/].  
> 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 | https://www.debuggex.com/] 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.
