#4957 Need good UI for dozens of same tool types [ss617]

Chris Tsai



since switching to Allura, all our mercurial sub-repositories (about 20) are shown in the head of our project page, which is absolutely confusing.

Mercurial is able store the sub-repositories in parallel to the base repository, which we had to do in the old system. So I tried to fix the problems above, by moving the sub-repositories into the main repository using the shell service. But I have no permissions any more, since all directories in /home/hg/p/bina are owned by root.

During our project upgrade, there was also a shell script "create-repo.sh" laying around in the same directory, which we used for creating new mercurial sub-repositories. This script was erroneously converted to a new mercurial repository (create-repo-sh) and should be deleted again.

Please, fix these problems or downgrade our project back, until the mercurial problems have been resolved.



I've rolled back the project until we can figure out how to deal with this mercurial setup.

    Both code tools and tracker tools (and others potentially) should be able to be consolidated into one item in the top nav.

    One compromise option would be to collapse tools into one item if, and only if, there's more than N of that tool.

    This needs resolved before the mingw project can move to the Allura system. This is just ugly. @Kyle Adams, the N in this case is 1. Also, the Summary page displays no icons in the header while the other pages do; this is also confusing. The icons server no real purpose at the moment, I would like to see an option to display them or not.

    Re-opening to make _nav.json match the visible nav.

    I'd guess you have to wait until the milestone is reached until you see changes, so 11.01. would be the date of visible change currently.

  • Tim Van Steenburgh

    Hi Earnie. I just updated your sandbox, so you should see the changes there now. Changes have been merged to master and will be live after our next production push.

    Looks much better, thanks. I assume the target production push is Jan 11th based on the milestone marker.
