New Datatracker UI

datatracker

The upgrade to the datatracker UI mentioned in plenary at IETF 92 has just been released. This effort has been underway for more than a year.

Lars Eggert began the effort, working intensively on porting the GUI to Bootstrap. The work took 287 separate commits, and comprised changes to 1016 different files.

The IETF Datatracker is now a responsive website which supports use on a much larger variety of devices, from small mobile devices to desktops.

The work relies heavily on the capabilities of Bootstrap, and continues to use the Django framework which the datatracker has been built on since version 2.00. It also uses new icons from FontAwesome, functions from django-bootstrap3.

Additional page conversion work has been done by Ole Laursen, and final style tweaks, bug-fixes and adaptations were performed by Henrik Levkowetz. There is more information about this release at http://datatracker.ietf.org/release/about

As before the best way to report any issues with the datatracker is to follow the “Report a Bug” link in the footer of each page.

Please join me in thanking Lars for this major effort! I would also like to thank Ole, Henrik, and everyone else who works on the datatracker and other IETF tools.
