About this group
- Here is the current prioritized feature list: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1XM-eCZDc9qncD0gF4ITcfDNIAiLPBe4g1IocnA7IyOE/edit?usp=sharingdocs.google.com
- we currently have sdc-portal deployed to a SmartOS zone in one of our private SDC7 deployments. We are using nginx as the web server. Thanks for the support!
- I've been using SmartOS for a year and a half or so now, but have not used SDC at all. Is SDC7 a customized SMartOS deployment with Joyent's management tools? I downloaded the SDC vmware image and fired it up and configured it. It's rsyncing a bunch of data from joyent.
- SmartDataCenter7 (SDC) is Joyent's OpenSource cloud management suite. The SmartOS image on which SDC7 runs, on the headnode and individual compute nodes, is a custom SmartOS image created by Joyent.
- #improvement I see sorting suggested, but also wondering if in the card view that we default to ordering by status (things that are down/stopped first) and then by name. As right now that'd be the most likely use for me in that view. Thoughts?
- Actually now that I look at it, I'm not certain how the are sorted by default (in our currently installed version). Thought it was by name, perhaps by a guid of some sort?
- They are currently displayed in whatever order they come back from SDC's CloudAPI. Sorting based on status seems like a great idea to me, along with providing ways for the user to choose how to sort.
- Once we implement client-side sorting, we'll change the default, too.
- #improvement Can we perhaps get a version number somewhere in the UI? For knowing the version we're on. Also, unsure of the use case and/or this has been fixed already, so perhaps this is a non issue, but it doesn't appear to support mobile when I re-sized the window the UI is clipped and drawing over/under other UI.
- RE Version number, mostly for reporting issues. Most likely Ops is going to be the ones installing/maintaining it and end users won't know what version is installed for reporting issues or suggestions for the UI. Most web aps that are UI for operational things that I see have a version number, even if it's just a url back to the repo and commits. Also as an end user I could tell the ops folks, "hey I see bug x has been fixed or UI update Y has been added can we upgrade to that one?" Not a priority, just a nice to have.
- I think we're moving toward a Continuous Deployment infrastructure for sdc-portal, which means there's only one version: master. In that case, report away - even if someone is locally working on a fix, that report remains valid. Thoughts?
- More thinking long term external customers. Again, not a priority.
- I'm looking for some suggestions on books, videos, etc. to get me up to speed on react/node/etc. I spent some time reading today. The materials I found were fine, but not great. Any advice?
- Have you seen the official React tutorial already? I found that to be helpful when I started: https://facebook.github.io/react/docs/tutorial.html However, that doesn't cover littlest-isomorph and littlest-dispatcher, which are core parts of sdc-portal (and which both have very little documentation unfortunately). There's an introduction to the philosophy of Flux (implemented by littlest-dispatcher) here: http://facebook.github.io/flux/docs/overview.html
- I'll ditto @bradley-grainger (React tutorial, then Flux tutorial), and add that my "door" is always open if anyone has questions about these or, quite frankly, anything web-related. I know it's not for everyone, but I get a lot of value out of working in close proximity to people who know more about what I'm interested in than I do. Often, I learn much just by listening to what they and their team have to say to one another (e.g. DevOps).
- I've updated the readme with screenshots of the new UI work and features.
