A collection of ideas that haven't made it into an own ticket yet.



  • General upgrade using frameworks/libraries e.g. for responsiveness
  • New project website when new layout is finished (
  • New screenshot when new layout is finished (e.g.


  • Rename admin to settings?


  • Show new marker when entering coordinates
  • Search function for existing entities on map
  • Show type-tree instead only type name i.e. details on the map, maybe with a tool tip
  • Click to set point for GeoNames result
  • Map focus top to narrow when in entity view and multiple points are "selected"
  • Click on intersecting polygons (look at MedCem project)


  • If the first year wasn't entered in a date form the rest is ignored (e.g.comment, second year, ...). Give a visual feedback for the user that this information isn't saved in that case.
  • At actors forms visually combine begin/end places with begin/end places
  • If an entity is updated filled out dates are not visible at first because they are hidden. We need a better solution.


  • At type overview, custom tab: if only one or two hierarchies are displayed it looks confusing
  • How to remove nodes from jsTree (e.g. remove self from selection)


  • Disable save if JavaScript is disabled
  • Places, add if not existing in same form (residence, first/last). Implementation could be a simplified add_place Ajax form to not leave the current form.



  • Show places instead locations
  • Check missing links e.g. source


  • Refactor types (update at entities)
  • Entity Mapper: refactor sub selects, get_by_class
  • Remove update from insert in save functions
  • Delete multiple
  • Better debug info (don't reset infos after redirect)

Upgrade to Python 3.6

Unsorted ideas

  • Check hardware acceleration
  • HTML emails (use strip tags for templates w/o html)
  • Show infos on first page of admin (settings, overview of users and logs, ...)
  • List fields: make buttons instead of comma separated string
  • Types, make build_table_form before and use on submit
  • Option to delete a type with all subtypes and links
  • Refactor system_types and view_class
  • Check at update if right class and system_type e.g. sources
  • Asset and bungle JavaScript/CSS:
  • Anonymous names
  • Run tests from command line and write to install
  • Installation script and/or Debian packages
  • Multi instance capability #924
  • Annotate text
  • Analytic capabilities
  • Image gallery - restructure directory structure, thumbnails creation, options to adjust sizes (only width?)
  • Second place for events (correspondence, journey)
  • Show membership at appears first if available
