User Requests

  • General

    • key parameters in networks, environment need to be findable and available in UI

    • expose network XML, or at least key network info (modules, file paths, gui vars...)

      • better network parameter editing
      • maybe a network wizard?
      • show what files are being used, network file name
    • more example nets

    • more documentation, more sample networks (very useful for demonstrating module functionality)

    • search modules, networks for keywords

      • see Matlab descriptors at the top of source files as an example
      • when searching for modules, can we have the option of searching within the module text (i.e. search module GUI component names, variable names etc.)
    • port colors: change intensities, not just colors

      • get updated palette from Nathan
    • standardize field names etc.

      • i.e. interpolation: source -> target, object -> target, source -> object
    • support for transparent background in images or movies (image library)

    • image or movie resolution options (can we generate higher resolution images than displayed?)

    • first time use window

    • Nifti reader for SCIRun

    • STL file support

    • Add preset location for saving SCIRun network files

    • Parser modules need better error reporting

    • Actually implement ColorMap2DSemantics module

    • list field properties

    • if statement module

    • SCIRun should be able to read "obj" format meshes

    • Simple importer for 1D colormaps

  • UI

    • collapse network preview window

    • side pane to expose some module parameters

      • expose important dataset parameters too (size, dims, data info etc.)
    • easier way to do notes

      • copy notes with modules
      • easy way to edit or clear notes
      • easy way to manipulate note location
      • render text on top of pipes
    • better graph layout algorithms?

      • look into graphviz, others?
      • line up modules
      • expose-like (OS X)
    • Add GUI element for indicating result of "Clear Output" button of module CollectMatrices

    • Add string port to Read / Write Nrrd

    • IO plugin for Meshalyzer binary mesh format

    • IO plugin for a binary node index matrix

  • Networks

    • halt network without killing SCIRun
  • Subnets

    • subnets must work (currently broken) - should be an easy select and create operation in GUI

    • better views for subnets: dockable widgets, tabs etc.

    • duplicate entire subnet

    • import network into other network

      • choice to import as subnet or register network
      • choice to save subnet as separate file

Qt Migration

  • Basic GUI Redesign

    • Determine overall look and feel.

      • Background color of network editor
      • Placement of main window widgets--match current design at first?
    • Redesigning major parts of the main window.

      • Menu bar
      • Context menus
      • Toolbars
      • Status bar
      • Configuration panel
      • Module Search
      • Module progress indicators
      • Module general settings: port caching, info on ports, general info: available in "drawer" subwidget
      • Tooltips
      • Command window
    • CIBC:Documentation:SCIRun:DevTasks:SCIRunGuiFeatureList

  • Major Development Milestones

    • All menu options/preferences work
    • Can walk through entire SCIRun tutorial!
  • IO

    • is there a way we can display a brief blurb describing file importer and exporter plugin information (i.e. show a short description of the file types supported, file extensions etc.)?
  • Graphics and Visualization

    • Be able to select or click on objects in renderer and get information i.e. node index, position etc.
  • OpenGL

    • move all OpenGL code into Core (and intermediate layer as needed)
  • Externals

    • verify that libpng and zlib are still needed, if so, update
    • better XML parsing library (libxml2 is overly complex and buggy)
  • Build

    • merge all generated headers into a single generated header file
  • Testing

    • Add regression testing feature to diff numerical output, either through text files or of matrix objects directly.
  • Core

    • Isosurface algorithm is very slow and should be rewritten
  • Error Handling and Exceptions

    • SCIRun exceptions could use an overhaul.

    • SCIRun assertions could also use an overhaul.

    • The same kind of assertions need to be used throughout the code. Currently, we're using:

      • assert from cassert
      • SCIRun's custom ASSERT macros
      • Boost static assert (perhaps it would be best to replace all other asserts with Boost assert utilities?)
  • Modules

    • Possible Problem Modules

      • ShowMatrix: this module should be completely rewritten
      • CreateMatrix: bug #327
      • GeneratePointSamplesFromFieldOrWidget: spinner boxes in both tabs are not editable. This is really annoying if one wants to generate a large number of samples.
      • GeneratePointSamplesFromField: The execution pattern for this module should be improved. Also, SCIRun test networks are using GeneratePointSamplesFromFieldOrWidget, so there are no tests for this module.
      • CreateAndEditColorMap: the GUI is not very usable and can be difficult to navigate.
    • Module Improvements

      • See if it's possible to encapsulate common functionality in Matlab Importer modules in a parent class. Same with Exporter modules.
