New maps

This meeting is about rewriting the map functionality in the OpenAtlas user interface, see issue #1628 and draft.
  • Talk about general layout, e.g. input elements outside of map -
  • Check issue and idea collections in draft
  • Does the planned Bootstrap upgrade makes a difference? - No
A lot of information was tracked directly in issues and draft. Here, some key points are listed:
  • The map module will be rewritten from scratch
  • We continue using Leaflet in combination with jQuery
  • We use this opportunity to update libraries or look for better replacements and look into replacing 3rd party code currently included (/openatlas/static/vendor) with a NPM installation
  • The first version is mostly about implementing existing functionality, additional features will be added later
  • The user interface will be redesigned, most probably we move form element outside the map and also list existing entries beside it
  • It was suggested to implement it in a way that it can be tested and to write it as a component

User interface issues

Try to find some small user interface issues for Andi to get to familiar with the "user interface/backend" functionality, see map/ui query . E.g.
  • #1593: Adding multiple aliases to an entity
