Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLINK-10706) Rewrite Flink Dashboard with React
Date Mon, 29 Oct 2018 11:32:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-10706?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16667056#comment-16667056

Till Rohrmann commented on FLINK-10706:

Thanks for raising this point [~Zentol]. I think this discussion surfaced a bit in the overall
discussion thread which you can find [here|http://apache-flink-mailing-list-archive.1008284.n3.nabble.com/DISCUSS-Flink-Cluster-Overview-Dashboard-Improvement-Proposal-td24531.html].
I agree that changing the technology stack can be a challenging task and we should make a
deliberate decision here. Thus, let's discuss it explicitly on the ML.

In general, my observation is that we don't have many people in the community who are super
familiar with Angular. Given that Angular 1 is quite old I think we should at least consider
switching to React. As a side effect, we might be able to attract more people helping with
a React based web UI in the long run. But this is something we can maybe judge from the ML
interactions with the discussion thread.

>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: Webfrontend
>    Affects Versions: 1.6.2
>            Reporter: Fabian Wollert

>            Priority: Major
>             Fix For: 1.8.0
> The Flink Dashboard uses currently Angular 1, which had its successor coming out two
years ago. Its expected that Angular 1 (or Angular.js how it is called now) will ceise to
exist in the future, due to its successor Angular 2-7 and React being the more actively developed
> Due to my personal experience with React i will attempt to rewrite the Dashboard in React.
Additionally i will upgrade all used libs, which mostly affects Bootstrap 4, hence the look
will be slightly different.
