Subject Re: RE: [DISCUSS] Improve Queryable State and introduce a QueryServerProxy component
Date Tue, 02 Jul 2019 08:45:07 GMT
Hi all,

In the past, I have tried to further refine the design of this topic thread
and wrote a design document to give more detailed design images and text
description, so that it is more conducive to discussion.[1]

Note: The document is not yet completed, for example, the "Implementation"
section is missing. Therefore, it is still in an open discussion state. I
will improve the rest while listening to the opinions of the community.

Welcome and appreciate more discussions and feedback.

Best,
Vino
