Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1196) Proposal to update Manifold Crawler UI
Date Thu, 23 Mar 2017 19:08:42 GMT


Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-1196:

- The OpenSIL license is considered a "weak copy-left" license and we can distribute fonts
under this license in binary form ONLY.  That covers SourceSansPro.  This must be acknowledged
in the MCF license files.  I will take care of that as time permits.
- The FontAwesome fonts have the same restriction.
- The dual-licensed files (jQuery-slimScroll) need to be (a) marked as part of the jQuery-slimScroll
package, (b) acknowledged as dual-licensed in the MCF license files, and (c) appropriate headers
need to be added to them which describe the license under which we are distributing them (which
is the Apache 2.0 license).
- jQuery, bootstrap, and bootstrap-select files all need to be (a) marked as part of their
appropriate package, (b) acknowledged in the MCF license files, and (c) have the MIT header
applied to all of them.

Once that is all done I think we can remerge into trunk.

> 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.
