[homepage][shipping] make team page smaller, action and status more useful


(Webtools Graveyard :: Elmo, defect, P2)

I've run another attack on the team page.

I've seriously condensed the vertical screen usage, by pulling the product into the table rows, but I also reduced the space usage in the rows themselves.

While doing so, I recognized that the status isn't decipherable at all, really, and so I split this up into a column with status, and a column with actions. Those are now ordered by time. is my branch, anyone volunteering to review the beast?

I did run through all team pages on two data dumps, a few times. So there's little risk that the data is breaking, or that it's showing wrong stuff. I also got feedback from Matjaz and flod on in-progress screenshots.
Progress graphs are hard to understand and thus useless (at least for me).

All in all it still looks huge and I see lots of whitespace, maybe not gigantic like now but still far far away from normal and way too much scrolling to use it instead shipping dashboard.

I am getting the following error when testing from your branch:

Doesn't happen on develop of course, but I can't figure out what in your changes might cause it. Do I need to do something special to make it work?
Flags: needinfo?(l10n)
That sounds like webby. And I notice that my branch takes off before your full removal of webby.

Strange, shouldn't affect anything, though.

Review of attachment 8503129 [details] [diff] [review]:

I like the look of it overall! 

 * I would add a little explanation to the icons, like in a title attribute. Especially those in the Sign-offs column, there's at least one that I have no clue about (the green one that looks like a graph). 
 * I would also remove the color change (white / grey / white... ) on the title cell (Firefox, Fennec... ) and let them all be white
 * Some HTML files are mixing 2-spaces and 4-spaces indentation. Shouldn't we stick to one pattern? 
 * Feel free to disregard the styling comments.

I don't like the title of that link, I'd rather have a text that tells me what will happen when I click the button, or a short help with "click for more" for example. Right now, "What is this?" doesn't help me at all. :)

Nit: it's weird to see a CSS class with upper-case.

``oi`` doesn't make sense to me, I thus think it's a bad class name. :)

An equal char is missing here.

I find this hard to read and error-prone. How about something like this?

defaults = (
    'pending', 'actions', 'accepted', 'suggested_shortrev', 
    'suggested_shortrev', 'fallback', 'appversion', 'is_active', 
    'under_review', 'suggest_glyph', 'suggest_class', 'fallback',

Another styling preference, but I like parenthesis better in `if` statements. For example, I find find this more readable: 

if (
    Action.REJECTED in flags and
    actions[-1].flag != Action.REJECTED

If I'm correct, that means you could have the same action twice in ``actions``. Is that fine?

r- because of some small issues that need to be fixed.
Attachment #8503129 - Flags: review?(adrian) → review-
I'm updating the patch queue right now, there's a few things I did, and a few things I didn't.

The actions piece is deduplicated here:

I moved to a slightly different layout of the table,, with just td borders, and the separator has no more borders. Instead, the product has border-radii, which enhance the grouping without adding too much visual noise.

The oi class names are part of the open-iconic library, so I kept those.

I agree that it'd be nice to have consistent styling in our html templates, but that should be a separate bug so that the actual bug is easy to read.

I'll push my current branch, and then rebase and squash it for review on a new branch.

That looks good to me! The only comment I have is that I would add the help link next to the Sign-offs header as well.

bug 1077988, make team page more compact, and sign-off info more useful, r=adrian.

Compact the team page by moving the product into a column, and generally
reduce line heights.

This patch also reworks how we're showing Sign-Offs and the l10n progress
around those.
Actions are now shown in chronological order, and there's a status indicator
column that presents statuses like good, up-to-date with missing strings,

bug 1077988, make product names a tad smaller
Making the appnames be h3 instead of h2 is also better semantically.
This is also in prod, marking FIXED.
