Project Suggestions

This section is just a bunch of notes that should be further developed or organized better.

Application Structure

For the remainder of this document "backend" would refer to application controller and other javascript that is not used directly with presentation. Likewise, "fronend" denote everything connected to or is GUI elements.

File layout

Organization of program structure using MVVM:

Actual architecture.png


Javascript, AngularJS, HTML and CSS. JSON for rest communication.

TDD is a must: Protractor or alternatively QUnit [UNRESOLVED]

Attempt to solve the problem with a generic implementation that parses any json object and displays it on screen.

GUI Layout:

The GUI laytout describes the three different methods of viewing the content. Each view is switchable in the same main page.

Api index (listing the resources)

resource view (list of objects)

object view (info about a specific object)


Could not find the API for data model fields (

Summary of Requirements

List is in prioritized order

  1. Display every possible path obtained by click-through of API (in other words, every link should be "followable")
  2. User friendly, which implies: no need for direct keyboard input, all information readily avaiable (no hidden content) and simple to retrace steps
  3. The program should deal with errors and misuse correctly and elegantly (in other words, not crash if someone does something un-expected)

Time Schedule

These milestones are guidelines only, except for 3rd December.

  •   1. nov : design layout finished
  •   8. nov : static html layout presentable
  • 29. nov : main work done
  •   3. dec : hard deadline

How you are dividing tasks within the group

baardew: backend controller and configuration + additional frontend where required

henriktl: ?

jonsandn: ?

swatis: ?
