Currently it seems a user needs two accounts
to login by normal user-password and oauth2 login with facebook,g+ etc.

Better would be if a normal username-password registered user could connect a oauth2-login with his existing login.

2018User InterfaceBug ReportLowreview keyboard navigationResearching

1.1 devel526.07.201529.07.2019 Task Description

Keyboard navigation is not documented

At least there is no hint in the interface which keyboard shortcuts are available for fast navigation between task list and task details view.

Due to the dropping of the cookie storage for remembering last search or last selected task in favor of not interfering when multiple flyspray browser tabs are open (with e.g. different projects) ,
the caret list browsing with ‘j’,’k’,’o’ and details view isn’t useful at moment.

  1. keyboard based navigation must be documented somewhere, e.g. by providing hints (clickable icon for info or :hover ) at appropriate positions.
  2. navigation flow and technical realisation reviewed for keyboard power users

Edit: Currently handled by js event handler:

  • j move cursor down in task list
  • k move cursor up in task list
  • o open current selected task in task list
  • n next task on task details page
  • p previous task on task details page
grep -r 'accesskey' *

Current accesskeys (browserspecific + key):

  • a double usage for new task and newmultitask. Must hit [Enter] to open one of them; on newmultitask page it adds a new row.
  • e edit task on task details page
  • f copy firstline to the other rows on new multitask page
  • l show loginbox or logs you off
  • m toggle mysearchesbox
  • r reset? when dokuwiki plugin is used
  • s submit when dokuwiki plugin is used
  • w watch/unwatch task on task details page
  • n next task
  • p previous task
  • y close task

One of my task has 8.9166666666667 days left. This is very very very very accurate !

A rounding would look better !

Running Alpha2 now, Cannot use this on 'reported version' here on this site

Edit: Rounding is adhoc fixed on 2015-06-21 in dev in template file, but code should IMHO be centralized, not template, see comments

2053Backend/CoreBug ReportLowambiguous user name display username / realnameNew

1.1 devel217.09.201519.02.2020 Task Description

With the existence of now two peoples named “Peter” on bugs.flyspray.org (I - peterdd , and PeterTheOne)
there are several places where the full names are display instead of usernames and the user can’t know who is which “Peter” until he visits the users profile page.

Different solutions possible:

  • more profile image/gravatar usage where user names are shown, on mouseover link title attribute shows username and realname
  • display user name (username) instead of full name (realname)
  • display full name and username (where much space available and precision needed)

When adding the mention feature, the username will be probably the prefered setting as the username is unique but the realname not.

2118User InterfaceFeature RequestLowShow overview of existing tags for usersAssigned
20%
peterdd1.1 devel09.04.201626.10.2019 Task Description

At several places it could be useful to let the user view available tags:

  1. When editing a task a toggle popup could show a list of selectable and existing tags.

I found several nice vanilla-js-multiselect-with-autocompletion scripts, but none yet that still works at a basic level when javascript is turned off.

My plan is now:

  • Keep the current basic input text field for input tags and show current assigned tags like exampletag1;exampletag2;exampletag3 separated by ‘;’ that is sent to the server when saving the task and server handles evaluation of that string (validation, duplicates, removed, added, creating new tags if allowed for current user)
  • A CSS only toggle that shows available tags that can be assigned (works even with js turned off), similiar to other places within Flyspray like advanced search toggle.
  • If js turned off, the user must type the tag - not as fancy, but at least works. (I thought also about using a html select with multiple=”multiple” attribute, but was not convinced due styling not possible in modern browsers without js)
  • If js is enabled, more fancier stuff is possible:
    • The input text field is hidden by display:none and instead the styled tags are shown.
    • The current added tags also get a little x to remove a tag by clicking it. The content of the hidden input text field is updated to reflect the current editing status. (click eventlistener)
    • A generated text input field for typing with autocompletion list shown of matching availbale tags. An unknown tag is added to the list if user is allowed to create tags. Clicking a item in the autocompletion list adds the tag and resets the autocompletion input text field for the next autocompletion action.
    • The tags within the toggle list with all available tags get also a click event listener, so clicking it adds them to the hidden text input.
    • Not sure yet if an added tag should be removed from the all available tags list or just make an CSS indication that a tag is still added, currently I tend to keep the list untouched, just highlight used tags of the task.
  • Optionally make the all available tags sortable by:
    • list_position (default)
    • alphabetic
    • global or project level
    • popularity (count of tasks using a tag (n + unnumbered private)), requires adding a data attribute.
    • group by detected prefix like shape:triangle shape:circle shape:rectangle could show a group of tags as: shape: triangle circle rectangle
  1. Make the list of tags searchable for the advanced search. added with FS1.0-rc10 by just using search key words also for searching list_tags table.

1.0516.03.201512.10.2015 Task Description

Due to the needed implementation of an anti csrf system into Flyspray 1.0,
this are a side effect issues we need to address:

Due the required replacement of action links to form buttons:

  • The user cannot just see anymore the target url of the action by hovering over the link. We can compensate that in the simpliest case by using the title-tag as additional info to the user. Trust not full reestabilished that way, but better than nothing and user has fear to click a form button.

Javascriptless CSS3-toggles:

  • Some clickable labels don’t show pointer icon when :hover. CSS issue, easy fix.

peterdd1.0-rc10312.12.201918.02.2020 Task Description

PHP 7.4 is out now and a few things should be done to make Flyspray work well with it.
Nothing really breaks, but a view deprecation warnings should be fixed.

Flyspray source itself: Just a few new notices, most are yet fixed in the master branch.

Watching the PHP7.4 compatibility of dependencies defined by composer.json:

  • ADOdb/ADODb: 5.20.15 should be OK for Flyspray
  • swiftmailer/swiftmailer: We still use 5.* branch, so either do quickfix for a notice in a fork or upgrade/rewrite our integration to the 6.* branch.
  • ezyang/htmlpurifier: 4.12 OK
  • thephpleague/oauth2-client: unknown, we still use 0.13, last real source change was Nov 2018, to upgrade requires rewrite of integration into Flyspray and there is low demand for OAuth2.
  • dapphp/securimage: seems to be OK
  • jamiebicknell/sparkline: OK, but probably obsolete for us in future due
    • still annoying problems with our github/travis tests (problem of travis, not sparkline itself)
    • better solution (interactive hover infos, scales, screen size adaptive) by Flyspray source planned

1236User InterfaceFeature RequestLowMark Issue As Verified or UnverifiableUnconfirmed
0%
3409.04.200718.07.2016 Task Description

Currently, the Vote functionality provides users a way to say "this issue is important to me". In addition to that functionality, it would be great for users to have a "Verify" ability on open issues; it would provide users a way to say "yes, this happens to me as well".

A "Verified" label would fit nicely right under "Votes", to the right of the label would be "Yes | No", each option being a link. After clicking Yes or No, or if unable to specify (lack of permissions), the text would display "Yes - # | No - # (% verification)" where '%' is the result of ((Yes/(Yes+No))*100).

This feature should not show up on all issues, though. It does not make sense to "verify" a feature request or todo item, for example. When defining task types, the administrator would specify if a type was "Verifiable" by checking a box in a column next to "Show".

If implemented, two great, mini extra features would be:

  1. The ability for the administrator to set the number of "Yes" verifications an issue would need before it was elevated to the next priority, severity, or both (specified by the administrator).
  2. The ability for the administrator to set the number of "No" verifications an issue would need before it was lowered to the previous priority, severity, or both (specified by the administrator).

Both settings should have an option to be incremental (priority / status increased every x verifications) or not (increases once, no matter how many verifications are received); an "Incremental" checkbox would do nicely. Also, a little "Enabled" checkbox next to both settings would be clearer than having zero act as the disable mechanism.

As with voting, a permission should exist to enable or disable this option for a user group. For larger projects, moderators tasked with verifying bugs could be given the permission whereas smaller projects may leave verifications up to the community.

Lastly, a way to send a notification once the number of "Yes" verifications reached a certain value would also be a great addition.

22.11.200818.04.2009 Task Description

In version 0.9.9.5.1 (unfortunately I couldn't select this version in the dropdown list on the left), reminders can only be created and edited by Admins and Project Managers. I recommend to give Assignees the permission to create reminders for themselves. To minimize any programming impact, his may be done as part of the "edit own tasks" permission.

This topic has been reported by Engie as part of Bug #713 for version 0.9.8 as well: "Also it would be useful if a user could create reminder for himself." Although that bug is already closed ("fixed in devel"), this part is not yet solved in the current version.
