pilight config editor
#10
@ktams

I did some testing with your latest version. This is what I experienced so far:
  • Loading the config file now works well, also with different file names
  • suggestion: in load and save config dialogs set the default filetype to .json
  • suggestion: allow changing the width of the devices window
  • Creating new devices is working now.
  • Clicking the new button opens the file manager, but not the Template folder, so you always have to navigate to get the desired template first.
  • Adding your own protocol template to the Template folder works fine.
  • Creating/editing a GUI element for a new device works, but the GUI editor adds trailing double quotes (") to the protocol and the group names evey time a GUI element is saved by clicking the OK button.
  • suggestion: add a copy function for devices.
  • The editor should allow only valid state values (eg "on"and "off" for switch or and "running" and "stopped" for program). Maybe these can be added to the templates as a list of valid option values.
  • Rule editor works for creating new rules, but editing existing rules is not very easy and can easily lead to invalid rules. Maybe the rules can be stored in a structure, so when editing, the program knows what device, action, option, operator one tries to edit and can prevent making the rule invalid.
  • suggestion: order the lists (dropdowns) alphabethically
  • Having just one button to enter an option (like .state) is not enough. Some protocols have several options. You created a dropdown for the datetime protocol, but that seems to be hard coded in the program. Imho these options should also be defined in the protocol template, so you don't need to modify the program when a protocol is changed or added.
  • When selecting an option for the datetime protocol, the program adds ==, but other operators like >.< >= are also valid here. Maybe you could add a dropdown where one of the valid operators can be selected.
  • Waiting for a version where a device can be edited completely (now only the name can be edited)


These are my comments so far. Hope they are helpful
