Reskinning IP Register

2019-05-01 - Progress - Tony Finch

At the end of the item about Jackdaw and Raven I mentioned that when the web user interface moves off Jackdaw it will get a reskin.

The existing code uses Perl CGI functions for rendering the HTML, with no styling at all. I'm replacing this with mustache templates using the Project Light framework. So far I have got the overall navigation structure working OK, and it's time to start putting forms into the pages.

I fear this reskin is going to be disappointing, because although it's superficially quite a lot prettier, the workflow is going to be the same - for example, the various box_ops etc. links in the existing user interface become Project Light local navigation tabs in the new skin. And there are still going to be horrible Oracle errors.
