Google Summer of Code 2010: Eden UI - Front-end for S3XRC

This project is part of Sahana Eden Google Summer of Code

Executive Summary
  • Abstract: 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.
