I’m handling the new-ui development following the latest submission to
the UI proposals
Last time we discussed this in the IRC channel, I believe we had set
that Bootstrap is the CSS library that we’ll use for wok branch and
In this chat I said that Foundation5 had some issues with IE9. I did
some research later and found that only the “off-canvas” component is
affected but so far we don’t use this component in the new-ui spec.
Both libraries are good but Bootstrap default styles are very similar
to the new-ui spec components, it would be easier and faster to
customize it compared to Foundation5 or even creating all the styles
and components one by one. The same goes for people developing new
plugins, they could start using Bootstrap components and then they
would have all the Wok styles.
Regarding the design thinking process, I’m not sure if I’m following
your question correctly but there are some things in the new-ui spec
that I believe we should discuss. For instance the double caret and
drop-downs in the filters (page 29). Was it tested (usability)? What
is the story behind it and the requirements?
Please, detail each point you want to discuss in a separated note so we
can have a conclusion on which way to go.
Also it would be great to add screenshots comparing the proposed widgets
for the new UI and the widget you think will have better usability.
That way everyone can see (without the need to open a file or browser an
URL) which is better and opine.
About the release date, it would be after 1.5.1. For now I’m creating
a static version to edit Bootstrap styles and widgets to match the
new-ui spec. Once it is finished I’m going to add the new assets and
edit the pages in wok branch.
You don't need to have every piece done to starting sending them to
review on ML.
If you are doing if per widgets you can send one patch per widget, so we
can see you progress and also opine on how it looks like and also about
I’ve seen these issues but I wasn’t able to reproduce none of them,
except one that refers to Wok logo (that is to be created). For the
new-ui I’ve cropped Kimchi text from the colored symbol, since the
ui-spec suggests to use native browser text instead of an image. That
way we can change the text to Wok or any other name until we come up
with a new logo.

*Subject:* [Kimchi-devel] [Clarification] WOK branch UI development
Hi Kimchi Devel-team,
There was good amount of discussion on using of *bootstrap
*or* foundation 5* for the new-ui development for WOK branch in the
IRC (on *2015-07-08*).
*Question I have on this topic*:
1. Are we experimenting with bootstrap and decide in the near future
on technology for new-ui development or bootstrap is the way to go for
2. Also are we applying the design thinking as well when it comes to
new-ui development for kimchi?
3. Do we have time line to accomplish this transformation ?
We have seen few UI issues in the WOK branch after separation of
kimchi plugin from base frame work (*Issues #704-709*). I see all of
them labeled as 'wok' now. So for short time is it worth while to fix
these issues ? If so, is there a way assign these to my team members
or some body help us in fixing these issues ?
Thanks in advance,
Kimchi-devel mailing list
