-====== Google Summer of Code 2010: Eden UI - Front-end for S3XRC ====== 
-**This project is part of [[http://eden.sahanafoundation.org/wiki/GSOC2010ProjectIdeas|Sahana Eden]] [[foundation:sahana_gsoc10|Google Summer of Code]]** 
-== Executive Summary == 
-  *Abstract: [[http://eden.sahanafoundation.org/wiki/S3XRC|S3XRC]] being a powerful backend that serves XML and JSON in a RESTful manner hasn't yet got a front-end that can exploit its positives. A new ExtJS based front-end would help us not only utilize S3XRC but also save a lot of bandwidth by exchanging information in JSON instead of full page reloads.

-== Project Plan and Timeline ==  
-I'm working in a prototype -> generalize mode where I work first upon a page specific widget, say a list widget for person module, and then extract out custom and generic code out of it to transform it into a generically implementable code. 
-After the first meeting on 26th May, 2010, the goals were further refined and essential widgets were identified. 
-^First Semester: 26 April - 23 May^^^^ 
-^Goal^Description^Due Date^Status^ 
-|Explore Web2Py, S3XRC, ExtJS, etc|To get a basic familiarity with the framework beneath Eden|5/23/2010|**Web2Py, develper guidelines explored**| 
-^Second trimester (24 May - 12 July)^^^^ 
-^Goal^Description^Due Date^Status^ 
-|Prototype a Grid view|Work up a sortable, add/edit in place paginated grid view for tabular data|6/7/2010|**Completed**| 
-|Generic grid view|Generalize the prototype into reusable, configurable widget|6/20/2010|**Completed**| 
-|In place Edits|Adding in place update functionality to grid widget|6/26/2010|**Completed**| 
-|Rheader Tabs|Replace existing static tabs into Ext based tabs|7/10/2010|**Completed**| 
-^Second trimester (13 July - 8 Aug)^^^^ 
-^Goal^Description^Due Date^Status^ 
-|Form Generation|Provide an API to create forms for various actions - create, update|7/20/2010|**Completed (in a different way)**| 
-|Form Integration|Use the API from previous step to bring in quick access to (create/update) functionality|7/30/2010|**Completed by end of July**| 
-|Form Validations|Work up a way to bring client side & server side form validations for in place insert/edits|8/5/2010|**Partially implemented**| 
-|Testing|Plug the gaps and make totally compatible with existing functionalities|8/5/2010|**Not 100% compatible, tested on several modules**| 
-Weekly progress reports on Mondays will be sent to the mailing lists outlining work completed during that week.

-==Good to have== 
-  *A better form generator as replacement for existing SQLFORM, which only generates a json configuration, instead of parsing generated html into json which is slow and is how it is done right now. 
-  *A complete redo of the way Rheader is implemented right now (each controller/module has its own view content generated from the backend), its nice to make the backend deal with just data and not interface, a simple configuration from backend would help new Rheader widget to generate a ui element -> which would also bring in live update capability without refreshing webpage. (suited for post soc) 
-  * More robust javascript : making core.js easier to read, easier to hack with. 
-== Minor Bugs == 
-  *Issues with Date representation in gridview in Firefox (shows NanNanNan) 
-  *Open actions for tabbed component elements
