Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMDEV-211) Allura - discussion thread improvements
Date Wed, 08 Mar 2017 21:01:38 GMT


Dave Brondsema commented on COMDEV-211:

The contributing guide is the right place to be.  It has links to join the mailing list where
you can ask questions, and a section called "Finding Something to Work On" which would be
a good next step for you I think.

> In Allura, threaded discussions are used everywhere.  They are the core part of forums,
and are used on each ticket, wiki page, blog post, etc.  Several improvements can be made
in this specific area.  This code is in python, with a mongodb backend.  Frontend JS &
CSS would be necessary for some of these items: 
> * better pagination through long discussions (ajax fetching, nicer display of each item,
> * add toggle to show/hide "meta" comments (e.g. status or field changes)
> * when emails are converted into comments, parse the reply so only the new text is included.
> * performance improvements
> * separate list of attachments from all the comments
> * etc...
