Things I love about the new RavenDB UI

Take a look at the following screen shot. It shows the results of querying an index:

Did you note the marked icon? This allows you to open the following:

Which means that you can get to:

And that is a whole different way of looking at the data.

MS Healthcare Silverlight app (http://pjd.mscui.net/default.htm) has that nicely done, with compat/expanded data view. Control for changing view mode was inspiration for similar concept I'm using in my app, take a look at it. New raven studio UI is really great, hope you solved caching issues also.

Is the silverlight Admin UI open source? It would be fun to take on a HTML5/Javascript version of it :p

Yngve, Yes, it is. You can look at it here: https://github.com/ayende/ravendb/tree/master/Raven.Studio

Great. Only one small suggestion. No need to hide the slider under that tiny button. You can put it directly into the header, there is plenty of space there. It will be more discoverable and will eliminate one click.

Did ye find a WPF GUI expert to do this work? I remember a few weeks ago you posted something about looking for experienced WPF GUI experts. I think there is skills shortage in people who can create a wonderful GUI experiences for non-web based apps.

Joe, We got hold of Samuel Jack (http://blog.functionalfun.net/) to do the fanciest stuff. He has been doing great work

FYI: When you navigate pages, it loses the size setting that you specified.

Also, when I'm logged into your blog, should I have to do captcha still to submit a comment?

Eric, We will fix the bug. For the very first time, you should get a captcha, yes.

Great post Ayende. I'm quite new on programming and I can't perfectly understand querying an index over our class discussion. Thank God you share those screen shots. Such a great help.
