Google-like user front end

Post by IanMayo »

The full UI is great for Adminstrators & Maintainers.

I'd like to provide a front-end that's much, much simpler for users that just want to run search on the data.

I know the REST API would allow a simple static HTML front-page to be created that can handle simple and complex search.

Does anyone know of such an implementation? If not, I'd be reasonably willing to create an Open Source instance.

You can build your own user interface using REST API. It is quite easy. I suggest take a look at available SDK's at docs.openkm.com ( .net, java, php ) fo r this purpose or directly using node.js

Hi there,
I think it's actually simpler than that.

I don't think it needs a server-side element at all. I think it can be solved via client-side javascript in a static web-page.

But, thanks for the feedback :-)

The static page should be in the server-side because you need to be authenticated ( and that's the easiest scenario ).
