2019-12-16: Development Meeting

Kacper, Tim, Tommy, Mike L, Craig, Mike H, Elias

Agenda

  • Updates
  • Next dev meeting: 01/06/2020
  • Versioning discussion
    • Kristina’s work:
      • Right panel with “Tale History”
        • includes “run configuration” (allows to specify entrypoint etc.)
          • It feels a bit weird with both “save” and “apply”
          • Defaults should be changed to run.sh and test.sh
      • Left Panel under Run > Files (Archived Panel)
        • Saved versions
        • Recorded run
      • Mike:
        • The current mockup gives 0 status on your current run
        • Kacper: Move recorded runs to a new tab with Files, Metadata, Share, etc
        • We might be constrained by the previous designs(it’s hard to navigate around-particularly things like running).
