[yast-devel] ITO project proposal #1: Web user interface
  • From: Duncan Mac-Vicar Prett <dmacvicar@xxxxxxx>

  • Message-id: <200711061226.07786.dmacvicar@xxxxxxx>

ITO time proposal
YaST Web UI, Approach: Wt

Why:
- there is already a prototype from Stano
- nobody has come wth a better approach?
- It is C++
- It is similar to Qt
- It offers AJAX
- widget-centric (avoid the web indiscipline and mess)
- integration with (existing) C++ libraries
- Provides plain widgets, which work regardless of JavaScript availability
(but benefit from JavaScript availability), and Wt::Ext widgets (based on
http://extjs.com)
- built in web server
- no need to rewrite yast modules, only to "rework" them

http://www.webtoolkit.eu/ (package available on home:dmacvicar in OBS)

Current problems:
- semantic: when is yast running? daemon? listening? only one session? how
many users?
- threading problems
- completness (implement widgets)

Goal:
- solve the semantic issues
- to be able to login and use very basic functionality of any module

Time: proposal 4 days (too much too less?)
When to start? Proposal Nov 12
