Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1403) Update WebCrawler Connector HTML String to Velocity Template
Date Tue, 02 May 2017 11:30:04 GMT


Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-1403:

Hi [~kishorekumar],

- Thanks for the bootstrap reference.  We should include this in at least the Wiki pages under
connector development. Ideally I'd also revise the book to include it but first I have to
understand it. :-)
- If we can use Velocity comments for the license headers *everywhere* in the web connector,
that would be great.  In fact we should do this wherever we're using Velocity templates.
- I think your basic idea of outlining sections to be deleted is good, as is using browser
session to manage the expand/collapse state, and we really should make all that support available
for all connectors to use.  Many other connectors have complicated tabs; I can think of a
half-dozen offhand right now.  I think it is time well spent to make this kind of widget formally
supported by the framework.
