Hello everyone, i'm pretty new here, so be gentle . I'm currently playing around with some ideas on how to make a good userfriendly, altough advanced, webadmin interface for Bukkit. I've come up with this idea for a layout of a webadmin, but i would really like to hear your comments/suggestions on it, before i go further into this. So far, the only thing that i have done, is making the base layout in photoshop, and afterwards setting it up in a html page, to see how it would look like and act in a browser. So far, the result looks like this (in chrome 11, i'm to lazy to make it cross-browser friendly yet..). Say hi to... The layout itself, is dynamic, and will adjust to the users resolution. Only the server list and action list has a fixed width. And yes, i know that the screenshot is in a weird resolution , but i haven't had access to a proper computer while i put this together.. It's made on a netbook, LOL! EDIT: I will try and make a couple of alternatives to this interface, since the more i look at it, the more it annoys me . With that said, it's not like i have put this into the garbage.. Yet . Now to the functionality i wan't it to have. Beneath is a list of some of the functions it should contain when it's done. This i haven't thought completely trough yet, so there will probably be added more functions (or even removed some, if i ain't capable of getting it to work properly). If you got any suggestions on other functions than those on the list, then you're welcome to tell me those. Multi-server support, so that you can administrate all your servers in one place. Build-in console, with a logging mechanism, so you can safe eventual errors messages which could occur on your server. Simple gui for most common used commands - which also should be able to be modified by the user. Multi-world management. Plugin management. Possibility to add new gui's made for specific plugins, or to manually create them by yourself trough the panel. These should also be able to be exported, in sort of a package, which can be installed on other BukkitPanels. Backup management. Player management. Server statistics. The whole thing will be made in PHP/MySQL, even tough i'm not the worlds greatest programmer (to say the least... I'm more of a front-end guy.), but fortunately i got some mates to help me out. But maybe some of you guys are great at this, and also wan't to help? Send me a PM, if you're interested! To connect the BukkitPanel with Bukkit servers, the plan was to use JSONAPI. Altough i haven't read up completely on that yet, it seems like the best way to do it. I've also got an idea, of making a mobile version of the BukkitPanel, which should be optimized for Android/iOS devices. I will soon add some concept screenshots of that too. If i decide to make it, then it will first be after the desktop version of Bukkit is done. Oh well, I believe that was it, although i probably have forgotten to mention something. It will be added later on. Thank you very much for your patience, if you have gotten all the way through my post! And as mentioned before (too many times maybe ), don't hold back if you got any comments/suggestions! The project is going to take a while, before i've got something to release. It's harder to make this, than i expected. So i just wanna say, that i got no clue at all, about when this is going to be done! Updates on the progress 16.06.2011 Made the most basic functions of BukkitPanel, to handle different servers and actions. Made a simple template system, which might get changed further into to progress. This i've made, so that it won't be too hard to change the whole look of the UI, if wanted. Made a bit of documentation, on how i wan't this thing to work/behave, and made other planning involving the project. 29.06.2011 The project is going REALLY slow, since my m8's got a lack of interest for helping me out. Therefore i will have to learn while making, and that takes a lot of time... So far, i won't give any release date, since i got no clue of wether or not my skills are good enough for making this. Bummer... EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.
