HTML5 Questions / Decision tree

  • Collect a list of user names
    • for ssh access to server
    • for editing this wiki
  • webserver: http or https ?
    • https provides security against eavesdropping on user passwords but requires a certificate
      • a "self signed" certificate:
        • web browsers will get a security warning and have to go through some extra steps
        • it can create an issue with some web browsers when utilizing the websocket messaging (in particular OSX/Safari)
      • a "trusted" certificate:
        • avoids "self signed" certificate issues
        • needs to be acquired
        • maybe a cost involved
    • regular http is likely sufficient
  • vortexshedding
    • how long do these jobs typically run?
    • as I understand it, there is only currently one module to execute
      • is this correct?
      • are there any expectations in future to include additional modules?
  • GenApp
    • these choices below can be changed easily later
    • require logon or not to run jobs ?
      • logon
        • provides a file storage area so users and retrieve previous results and manage jobs
        • requires self-registration
        • user info and per user statistics available
      • not (logon)
        • avoids the steps required for self-registration
        • results are only available during interaction
      • my initial thought is to require logon
    • feedback tab or not ?
      • feedback tab
        • provides a method for users to provide feedback on the application and messages and job info
        • is sent to an easily configured email address
          • e.g. we currently use a google groups address for the "sassie2" deploy of genapp, but it could be anything that accepts an email
        • someone would have to monitor and respond
        • it might be useful
      • not (feedback tab)
        • do not have to explain it nor respond
      • i am open to either choice
    • document tab or not ?
      • document tab
        • provides a link to detailed context specific documentation pages
        • someone has to write a detailed documentation page manually
      • not (document tab)
        • user may need additional help
      • i am open to either choice... if we start without, it can always be turned on later
