Hi everyone, I'd like to post here some ideas for the TKLs and the community. So this will be the first of various post. First some suggestions for the website:
- A link in the front page to the forums. I know there's a widget there but I really miss a button in the primary nav. (left to Blog link)
- Are you guys going to relaunch the theme with a bit of purple and less brown? ;)
- Web configurator: Working on the openldap appliance (which needs you to ssh to the server and run a config script), I was thinking if you ever thought of a web page configurator instead of the current confconsole. It's just an idea. Maybe this kind of appliances can run and by default have a /setup/ page where the user is presented a way to configure his appliance, without the need to ssh to the server. It can serve as a way to stablish initial passwords, set hostname, etc in an easy manner. I think maybe webmin was put into the TKLs to that end, or to what end? (I've havent used webmin never using TKL, so I would like to know how others use this interface). But for a task like changing the hostname, or setting a fqdn, it would be nice to just nav to setup, login and change your settings. Maybe a "micro framework" can be used by developers to add actions and configuration options there.
- Have you think about a default monitoring job running to get info about the services in the appliance? Just thinking for the future of a service like Hub (which I haven't tested yet) to have monitoring tool. Or using something like puppet or chef, to serve as backend configurator and monitoring tool.
Well these are justs ideas, I would like the community to step in and comment, I think we all wan't the same: easy deployment of infraestructure.
