[jira] [Created] (SOLR-13133) Schema Browser could be better

JIRA jira@apache.org
Gus Heck created SOLR-13133:

             Summary: Schema Browser could be better
                 Key: SOLR-13133
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-13133
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: Public (Default Security Level. Issues are Public)
          Components: Admin UI
    Affects Versions: master (9.0)
            Reporter: Gus Heck
         Attachments: schemabrowse.png

In a recent discussion I was yearning for a better overview of the fields, dynamic fields and types available. To that end and with probably little or no will/ability to actually implement it in the Admin UI I did however spend a few minutes drawing out what I think might be better than what we have now. This issue is to record the idea and maybe inspire someone. There is a small chance I'll decide I want to learn more about Angular and give a crack at it, but anyone who likes it or thinks they have something even better is free to run with it.


The basic idea is that our current UI hides the fields/types in a dropdown where they are impossible to see, and leaves acres of wasted space below. Also a couple details are repeated such as the field type. The above image shows just 2 fields (_text_ and id) with _text_ selected. Obviously the list would be much longer and also have a section for types (hopefully with a nice pretty divider). The other key feature here is an "at a glance" flag specifier (intended to represent the schema values only, details of schema/props/index would be in the detail view to the right as they are now) Flags that are capitalized are on and flags that are lowercase are off. The sections correspond to the sections in the create field dialog in the UI, with an additional -t- between the first two to represent Tokenized or not.
