Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-5405) Cloud graph view not usable by color-blind users - request small tweak
Date Thu, 27 Apr 2017 18:15:04 GMT


Shawn Heisey commented on SOLR-5405:

Good idea, [~SchneiderCurtis].  I'm not color-blind, but I think it's important for our interface
to accommodate those who are.

A little bikeshedding - different shape->status mappings that I think are slightly better:

circle - Active
square - Recovering
triangle (pointing downward) - Down
diamond - Recovery Failed
X - Gone

Rationale: Because the current graph uses circles, I think that continuing that shape when
everything's OK will be less of a surprise for upgrading users.  An inverted triangle is a
natural "down" indicator, and a diamond is another "pointy" shape ... tying it together with
the triangle, which also indicates a problem state.
