Bringing the Sidebars Online
The design and challenges of adding the sidebars to Online
Ashod Nakashian (Ash) has been actively contributing to Open-Source Software for many years. He started fixing bugs and stability issues in LibreOffice around new year 2015 in his free time and has been with Collabora Productivity since late 2015, primarily developing Online. He has over 20 years of industry experience developing software. When not hacking code, he spends his free time reading about the world, past and present, as well as the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. His latest hobby is linguistics and learning languages (and when traveling resumes, scuba diving).
The Sidebars provide rich and advanced editing features to the document and selected objects. This feature-rich GUI widget was available to the desktop users only, until last year. Each document type has its own Sidebar and, while they share the same subsystem, each had its own challenges to make them available in a usable form in the browser, including the ability to hide and show on demand, and interact with popup windows, menus, and controls. This talk is about the design and challenges of bringing the sidebars to Online.
