Public meeting note of Oct 15th, 2013

« previous week | index | next week »

Nothing is committed until it lands in a release :) .

These are the features mainly driven by the Taipei teams, in co-optations with other teams in Taipei and around the world. We are not meant to take all the credit :)

Cursor management / Selection / Copy-paste

Enabling user to move caret and select text easily, optionally enable copy and paste.

  • User stories: SystemPlatform 25/26 (must have), SystemPlaftorm 27 (nice-to-have)
  • User story bugs:
    • bug 921965 - [Keyboard][User Story] Text Selection
    • bug 921964 - [Keyboard][User Story] Cursor movement
  • Meta bug(s): bug 924419 - Support text selection in Firefox OS
  • Devs: Rudy, Jan(?), SC Chien
  • UX: Carrie
  • Status (updated: 2013-10-14):
    • Had a discussion with Ehsan on the architecture and the UX issues that we should clarify first.
    • Most UI (including easy handle for cursor) will happen in Gecko, while customizable from Gaia. This is because if we do the UI in Gaia, it may have UI unsync issue when you scroll the page with the cursor.
    • We might have the UX spec in a day or two, and will follow up to discuss with Ehsan/SC to create the engineering bugs.
    • UX Design to Clarify:
      1. Whether we need customized UI style for the cursor easy handle. (Probably yes, has talked about this with Mike and Carrie.)
      2. The position of the tool menu for copy/paste/delete should be fixed or floated with the cursor? - (Should be fixed at the top of the screen per current UX decision)
