Feature ideas for the webend   

Postby RMerlin » Tue Oct 05, 2010 11:52 am

Now that the main configuration interface is mostly done, I will be looking at various potential additions to the webend that are related to WDTV configuration/management. Here are a few ideas I *might* look at (this doesn't mean they will happen):

I have deleted feature ideas that have been implemented and released as of 0.4.5.3.

o Disk formatting
o Disk error checking Unlikely, for technical reasons
o Interface to run a custom config_tool command DONE
o Clicking on "Save" only save currently displayed page DONE
o Change fuelgauge colour based on free space on disk DONE
o Allow downloading FULL config backup (not just /conf/config. DONE
o App.bin management DONE, in beta on SVN
o UMSP plugins management DONE, in beta on SVN
o WEC: WECT_GROUPDEFINE (with default pri of 0) DONE
o WEC: WECT_GROUPDEFINE tags: displaypri, collapsable, iscollapsed DONE



Toss any other ideas that you might have.

search wdtvext plugins dir for WEC addons? ;)
this way we could easily supply WEC config with ext plugins.

Not a bad idea. Any particular reason why this would be easier than having the WDTVEXT plugins copy their plugin into /tmp/config-plugins/ instead? I kinda like the idea of having WEC plugins all in one place rather than looking in different places.

I think it would be great if you added the ability to add the .mnt tag to directories. Pretty much all my app.bin's need that for something, and it's a pain to add directions for it to the README every time (not to mention feeling like a pretty inelegant solution for end-users when I strive to make everything else happen through webend plugins).

This was the other thing on my list that I wanted to tackle, but it seemed like too small of a thing to be in its own app.bin so I put it aside for the moment. I think putting it in the configurator app.bin would be the perfect place.

Disk error checking would be great. Disk formatting is an option, but it should be really, really hard to do without really meaning to. That is, an "are you sure?" popup probably isn't sufficient to keep people from accidentally deleting the last 10 years of media files they have collected.

If I'm remembering correctly, I think the Windows version of TrueCrypt has three separate popups you need to click before it will actually perform a format - that might be the way to go.

Webend is awesome Thanks!

A suggestion would be the ability to save and load configuration files, like a router. Still awesome !

This would be really sweet! The ability to upload/download config files via web. You could easily backup your current working config before tinkering with new settings and restore it later. Or pre-packaged configs could be offered with certain basic things already setup for people without the time or knowledge to do it themselves.

The next version already lets you make a backup of your configuration (which remains on the WDTV), and reload it.

I will be taking a look at the current UMSP plugin management interface, possibly migrating it into WEC.

i think you can include:

config_tool -c MEGA_AUTH=number ( to enter megaupload cookie )
config_tool -c AUTH=number ( to enter HOTFILE cookie )

This options are missing on webend.

Another idea could be enter a custom command or upload files to /tmp/conf/ ( for umsp plugin updates )

Thx for your work

New entries: are these used by the built-in download manager, or by an an external one?

Custom command: Might be doable, will think about it.

Upload files: use the file manager on the main webend page for that.
