BOUNTY: Web GUI reprogramming
« on: April 09, 2012, 03:04:33 am »
Inspired by this thread http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,48107.msg253688.html#msg253688

I will start with contributing with 50$.

This is partly aimed at Craymore....:) Now we will see if he wants to.
Kind regards Brian

I have no idea what something like this would cost but I imagine it would be of the order of weeks of work to do it right, test etc.
I think we would be relying on a 'special rate'  :).
Anyway I will match your $50.

Do we perhaps need to clarify exactly what we are expecting?

I had imagined more of a code tidying exercise rather than adding new features.
Personally I have no problem with the existing webgui but I know that Supermule would like to see things work differently in terms of grouping options.

I guess its the same as it is now, but with code that applies to current WEB std. code to be shown exactly the same in different browsers.

A major cleanup is what is needed!

Good we're thinking along the same lines.  :)
As Craymore said if that makes it easier to add new features that's a bonus.

Where/how is the web UI generated?  I've just started playing with pfSense recently and haven't really had a chance to look into this, but I have a fair bit of experience with XHTML/CSS (keeping an eye on those three green checkmarks in the FF web developer toolbar!) as well as some server-side scripting languages.  As long as it's not Perl, I might be able to take an honest stab at this :)

How would I go about doing that?  There's a craymore registered here, but that account's only been registered for five days... did he just now sign up on the forums? o_O
