@robi Installing apps from the store en masse can't be common. I think rn it's flow is best for an average user, but it could be a little more mobile app store like with an "installing" progress bar while you discover other apps, and then it pops up with "installed, click to open" or something via Notifications. I could see it, but again - installing apps isn't common enough I don't think to worry about this since installing is a one-time task.
But I'm glad you brought it up because it would add a bit of polish to have a more "app store" feel to it. Still allowing app discovery while an app's installing. I think Cloudron should be able to do that one day even if it doesn't feel like a priority rn.
I took a quick look at that some time ago, but it wasn't that trivial for me at least unless I would rewrite parts of the element table management around sorting. Happy to accept any patches there of course.
@robi I don't touch dashboard code. I wouldn't mind doing a PR for the Wordpress (Developer) project to add this but to be applicable to all users dashboard code would be needed since "admin urls" are technically changeable.
I don't think @girish should accept anything less than me doing a PR for making the fields customizable. And...okay, now that I've thought about it, if Girish isn't against the PR for the dashboard change, then I'm down to code it.
@girish There's was a lot of times I didn't want to uninstall to re-install (just re-start with some box changes), but when "restarting" them I had to wait for them to finally "Not Respond" at certain points to restart my test of it connecting apps. Obviously because I was working in box out of necessity, my specific situation was a little weird. 😅
The file manager is in its early state UI wise. I also have further ideas how to improve that, at the moment we focus on other areas like apps for a bit. But let those ideas be discussed I'm the forum and I will pick them up later.
Best to break up in individual feature requests though.
I'm with @nebulon, I see this as difficult to support, harder to code for - and more user friction. I usually never support more user friction unless it's dire. I think configuring after installation is more than acceptable. It's not like we can't write scripts using their API to macro your suggestion too, but I digress. 😂
@atrilahiji I prefer the tag / label approach, and since tags are already built in, I figure they could pull this off first before getting into a more "drag and drop" kind of interface (as well as being able to toggle turning tag-based organization on and off).
