A new look for OpenFPC – New GUI in devopment

with 2 comments

Developing open source software has its ups and downs. It’s great to hear that your work is helping others solve problems they have, but on the flip-side some people simply love to focus on negatives and never offer to help improve through collaboration.

A user of OpenFPC recently decided they didn’t like the web UI much, and rather than simply complaining about it, they decided to collaborate and work on an overhaul. It’s efforts of people like this that make OSS all the more rewarding.

The UI isn’t quite ready to be released in an installable form, but I thought I would provide a couple of screenshots to wet current users appetite. David, thanks for your effort!

  1. Leon nice.. few ideas.. move the filter options to a left/right side menu to make metter use of screen real-estate or have the filter menu prepend and have hide/show actions. Have you pushed the design work to the repo – I would like to have a go at it.

    Also, has the team considered making a api interface? Would be nice to query for session data and have openfpc return json for search results. This would make openfpc very flexible in other sue cases and allow other applications to leverage these epic features without damaging the user experience.

    • Hi mate, I know this is an old comment, but I’m just clearing out the queue.
      I’m thinking about the session data at the moment and I’ll get back to you.
