[Yast] Provide useful understandable error messages for Storage

an idea by locilka

It has probably already happened to you: Creating volume /dev/sda2 failed with error -1008 Did it tell anything useful to you? Maybe if Storage gave you some more info, you could have continued, fix the problem by yourself.

Make ruby-ui usable for YaST

an idea by dmacvicar

ruby-ui was a hackweek project with jreidinger to make libyui (YaST text/graphical engine) usable from pure-ruby without going through YCP. We experimented a bit extreme trying to make the usage of SLIM templates possible. It kind of worked.

rewrite YaST2 AppArmor

an idea by cboltz

The YaST2 AppArmor module is still based on the Immunix::* perl modules that are deprecated upstream and therefore causes some maintenance "fun". Upstream AppArmor utils were rewritten in python. The idea is to rewrite the YaST2 AppArmor module to use the python modules or JSON interfaces.

YaST2 code reorganization

a project by ancorgs

YaST code organization is a mess at many levels (files location, namespaces, code dependencies...). Recently we created this gist to put some of the issues on the table Many YaST developers will be at openSUSE Conference, that overlaps with Hackweek. The plan is to lock them all in a room with a blackboard and reach agreements on how the code should be organized in the future. Then use Hackweek to iron the details, document everything in some kind of style guide and, if time permits, even do some experiments about how to adapt the existing code to the new conventions.

YaST Dialog Editor (UI "Designer")

a project by lslezak

Unfortunately there is no UI designer or editor for YaST dialogs. All dialogs are hand crafted in Ruby code. The idea of this project is to provide some way how to create or edit the existing dialogs in a user friendly way, without touching any code.

Edit Widget Properties in YDialogSpy

a record by shundhammer


The YaST UI has introspection on the widget level: In any YaST dialog, hit Ctrl-Shift-Alt-Y (Qt UI) to open the YDialogSpy. Use the widget tree that pops up to highlight the corresponding widget in the dialog. Hit the "Properties" button to see the widget's properties (current value, layout stretch factors, layout weights, ...).
