Subject RE: [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1196) Proposal to update Manifold Crawler UI
Date Fri, 12 Jun 2015 16:19:15 GMT
Hi Kishore,

The Mcf project does not standardize on any one ide for development. If
intellij cannot format jsp so that critical structure remains, then we
should not use it to format the crawler UI jsps.

In other words, unless it is at least as good as what we have now, then
I would prefer we do not reformat at all.

If consistency is a concern, as far as i know the formatting of the
jsps is currently already consistent, so if you stick with what is
there you should be ok. If tabs vs spaces is the problem, i am fine
with replacing all tabs with two spaces.

Manifold Crawler UI


Kishore Kumar commented on CONNECTORS-1196:

Hi []

Sorry about all this mess.

I am using Intellij 14.x for this development and have configured 2
space for formatting for HTML/JSP/Java.

The reason for this formatting is to have common formatted code for
all JSP, so when we commit the new changes, we can clearly identify,
what have changed in the new JSP.

Do you know of any setting in Intellij where we can achieve the kind
of formatting you are referring for JSP? Please let me know, so that I
can use the same.

If you think this is not good and insist in keeping the same
formatting and replace only tabs with 2 space, then I have to rewrite
all the JSP one by one again and compare for formatting change.

> Hi,
> I have been working on a new User Interface for ManifoldCF.
> This UI is based on Bootstrap, jQuery and some other opensource scripts.
> Only the index.jsp will be loaded once and other page are rendered using AJAX call, making
it more responsive and modern.
> Please find the attached screenshots.
> *Backward compatibility:*
> Since most of our tab comes from connectors, those tabs will be displayed as it is with
no immediate attention required. (see sample screenshot attached)
> *What next?*
> In future we can add Charts to our reports where ever applicable, so that it will be
more user friendly & informative for end users.
> Can make use of Web socket to notify exception or error to users as Notifications.
> *Browser compatibility*
> Has been tested with most latest browser and IE10, will try to add support for IE8 with
acceptable degradation.
> Any suggestion, concern much appreciated.
