JADEĀ  Environment Development Ideas

Make JRW Designer Open Source

Master Terminal is a heavy user of the Jade Report Writer functionality. We have to regularly train clients on how to use the designer.

The designer could be enhanced is several simple ways that would make the product far easier to use.

The main change should be the the F6 catalog of attributes. This needs a major redesign to allow the navigation of the elements.

I propose that either the Jade source is made open source or the Jade source is made available to 3rd parties on request; so that they can do they own enhancements.

    Following the latest JEDI Review meeting, it was decided not to open source Report Writer, but we are open to making improvements We will create a JEDI to collect suggested improvements. Also we are considering releasing the Report Writer schema at a more regular frequency.

    I agree with Ty, any changes that would be made should be submitted back as pull requests.

    I would also find it useful to be able to put karma heartbeat logic in some of our longer running reports - so we stop getting alerts about processes not responding when they are just running a really long report!

    Re: fragmented development.
    If we did this, instead of forking the project, I would hope that users submit pull requests for us to integrate their changes so everyone can benefit.

    When or If this happens ..... Please remember a COPY function... that makes life easier for the Report developer

    As a group we are surely better off to invest more heavily in product changes than fragment to open source development streams? Suggest changes here, live with the voting system.

    Master terminal has many different views for writing reports, some of them contain 100s of item sin the catalog; this makes it really hard to navigate. The UI really needs updating.
