Subject Re: Building Hadoop UI
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2012 16:01:18 GMT
Hi Harsh,

thanks for your feedback, I'm really interested in the new HUE branch.
Our clients are always looking for something customized, which is difficult to achieve sometimes
if we don't have something that we can re-use. Our goal is to create a sort of template structure
and build our app on top of it.

I'll let you know about the development, also take a look at the HUE dev community list.
