Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1196) Proposal to update Manifold Crawler UI
Date Sat, 18 Mar 2017 18:59:41 GMT


Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-1196:

Hi [~kishorekumar],

I finished setting your branch up so that the UI tests will make SeleniumTester and Selenium

Please note that you will need to set an environment variable for the Chrome environment.
 For future interest, I set it up so there are more than one potential environments:

            <jvmarg value="${env.SL_CHROME_DRIVER}"/>
            <jvmarg value="-Dwebdriver.safari.driver=${env.SL_SAFARI_DRIVER}"/>
            <jvmarg value="-Dwebdriver.firefox.driver=${env.SL_FIREFOX_DRIVER}"/>
            <jvmarg value="${env.SL_IE_DRIVER}"/>

I did not port the RSS UI test yet, but the SeleniumTester class does build properly, and
is available when the UI tests are run, as are all the necessary Selenium jars.

In order to get everything set up, though, you will need to do the following:

ant clean-core-deps make-core-deps
ant clean build

I will look into porting the RSS test from github either later today or tomorrow.

> 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.
