Desktop client needs UI to minting "call-me" URLs


(Hello (Loop) :: Client, defect, P1)



(Not tracked)

backlog mlp+


(Reporter: abr, Unassigned)



(Whiteboard: [landed on loop-ui-initial][s=mlpnightly1, p=.25][qa+])

User Story

As a user, I can click on the Loop icon in the toolbar and get a URI to share with a friend.

Assumes any necessary authentication with the server is already completed.

Approximate UX:

- Panel shows some text "Get link to share with a friend to Video Chat" and a button.
- A text box is displayed for entering the person's name
- Clicking the button gets a link from the server
- The link is displayed in a read-only text box
- The button may be pressed more times to get more links

Does this require signing into FxA first? (I can't remember if we said we needed to sign in for MLP or not)

What's the UX here?

I think the goal is to have FxA in MLP if possible, but not to treat it as a hard blocker.

For MLP, the account aspect of creating URLs might not be critical, so long as you can map from the "call me" URL to the push URL in some way. For MVP, we need to ensure that we're minting "call me" URLs only for the user who requests them (that is, the request to create a "call me" URL needs to be authenticated, which implies FxA login). If we can get FxA into MLP, then it's probably best to do this correctly from the outset rather than cobbling together something that works without a login and then having to rework the code.

User Story: (updated)
As per my comment in the UX etherpad, if there's away to easily avoid forcing the user to click a button, that seems like nicer UX.  That said, if it's easier to do it with the button, that's clearly just a nice-to-have.

We've implemented this on the github branch, it has some reliance on the chrome privs, so we may need some rework for this to work fully.

Marking fixed as this has landed on loop-ui-initial and we believe the work here is done; loop-ui-initial will be cherry-picked to master at an appropriate time.

This is a late review for the parts of this bug that landed on our integration branches a while ago, that we didn't review at the time due to not having our process fully sorted. We'll address comments where necessary in a follow-up patch, via bug 1005245.

There's a couple of minor comments that we'll deal with - one removing some unnecessary test code (we'll do that in bug 1005245), the other is sorting out our css and themes story, which I've filed bug 1010142 for.

Correct bug? Because both strings and IDs seem clear to me.

> Correct bug? Because both strings and IDs seem clear to me.

As I said, I can't see anything wrong with them. Can you explain exactly that the problem is, and how would you improve them?
Repeating string content in a string id is useless from localizer pov - there is no info or context passed what the string is about and without searching for screenshot in a bug or trying to find the string in the UI it is almost impossible to localize it correctly.
OK, makes more sense now. Use IDs related to the actual role of the string, not its content.
Marking this verified fixed based on previous smokestesting.
