It’s rather complicated right now, and might be difficult to understand for new users.
Everything in “Syncthing Options” and “Syncthing GUI” should probably go into an “Advanced” screen (with categoris “Options” and “GUI” maybe). Are there other things that should be changed, or different ideas?
All feedback is appreciated
Once I finish the implementing the new Web GUI, I could possibly work on mockups for the android app. Would you be interested in that?
Not to derail the topic, but oh do tell! I’m planning on re-implementing the Web GUI for native Windows: if you’re implementing a new version of it I’d be very interested in timescales, etc.
I’m not sure when I will have time to finish implementing it, hopefully sooner rather than later but you can check out the design here and discussion relating to it here:
Hey guys, I have been working on a new interface for Syncthing lately and wanted to share it with you guys before proceeding further.
The goal with it is to make it easier for average users to use the app, by simplifying the interface and making it easy to understand what is happening at any given moment, without needing special knowledge or abilities. I wanted the interface to feel familiar by using recognizable design patterns.
The biggest change is that folders now look more like people …
Of course, that would be cool.
I just can’t promise that we implement it very soon, there’s just so much to do D:
