Explore the possibility to have a self sufficient frontend server running locally. This server would compile all the frontend code and act as a proxy/middleware pointing either for a dev ref-server or to a local SUMA instance. This way would be possible to do modifications in frontend even without having a SUMA server running locally.
I typically find very hard to figure out in the whole SUSE company who is the go-to guy for a certain skill/knowledge/experience. I'd like to have some place where one, who does not know people around him, can just browse and search for people by some tag or label. Sometimes you have a problem in a specific area but you don't know who to ask to, or even if you do, you don't know there were many other people with the same knowledge/experience you could have ask before.
There are customer use cases where sharing information via internet or uploading data somewhere is not acceptable for security reasons: this avoid the usage of some tool like the most famous Google Analytics, and prevent developers from understanding how the web application is used by the customers. I don't want to reinvent the wheel and re-implement a copy of Google Analytics, but getting inspired from it, the goal is to reuse information that we already have to extrapolate an analysis of the WebApp customer usage.
I started this project with the aim of learning a programming language where I am not so comfortable yet (python). The purpose of this Hack Week project is to bring this basic tool at a minimal stable and usable state with the purpose of analyze the usage of a WebApp in scenarios where the WebApp is used in an internal network only (offline, disconnected from the internet).
The experience while navigating throughout the UI of Suse Manager it's not that nice. Whenever we navigate to a new page, the whole page gets refreshed and recreated, even when half of it didn't change a thing, for instance, the menu, topbar, and the notifications WebSocket connection, which in my opinion doesn't provide a smooth experience.
This project has the goal to test out an automatic way to transform the Suse Manager UI into a Single Page Application.
The Parrot seems to have many fans meanwhile, in particular since we're running Rocket.chat at SUSE. Some may find these emoticons distracting, some find it just cool and I would certainly love to see something like the Partyparrot but as a "SUSE parrot", probably someone manages to make the SUSE Geeko move in a similar fashion, as party_geeko. Finally I'd love to see this uploaded to the cultofthepartyparrot.com under "Party Guests". Because clearly the Geeko insists! :-)
Bonus: do the same with TUX for total ssǝuızɐɹɔ
