Ticket #796 (assigned enhancement)
Implement UI elements: build's progress bar & build time charts
|Reported by:||toinbis||Owned by:||toinbis|
Couple of UI elements could be implemented in order to make buildbot's webstatus pages be more intuitively-informative:
a) build's progress bar. A graphical representation for the build's ETA time.
b) build's timing chart, probably with distinct type(colour) of lines representing each step.
jQuery(UI) + Plot( http://code.google.com/p/flot/) are the tools to be used initially, whilst having eyes wide open for the more appropriate ones (more possible options are described here: http://www.reynoldsftw.com/2009/02/6-jquery-chart-plugins-reviewed/).
These improvements shouldn't affect the way JS-less browsers renders web status pages.
External loading of JS libraries and/or caching should be considered to reduce an extra load of buildmaster. But that's already the scope of another ticket.
