Interface

I’ve been working on the web tool interface recently. I don’t have much to write about, since it mostly involves me reading about design, trying ideas, learning about new YUI components, etc.

I’m trying to decide exactly how structured to make the test case editor right now. Free-form? Free-form with tags? Structured lines, but free-form within the line? Or, not free-form at all and build everything from structured tags. I would give an example, but I don’t have anything that I can show yet.

I have many conflicting goals: it needs to be *fast*. Fast to enter, fast to work with imported tests and fast in terms of the actual UIĀ responsiveness.

On the other hand, almost all “add ons” will need structured data. It is very difficult to do processing on free-form data.
