Original issue: recently used repository are not listed in "Bookmarks" dialog

20140609_004
Currently only user added bookmark entry listed in the "Bookmarks" dialog, recently used repository are not listed

Expected behavior

I personally believe the Bookmarks feature needs a re-design

Don't include recently-used repositories

  • We already have a sub-menu dedicated for this purpose.

Get rid of the "Bookmarks" dialog

20140609_006

  • Not much exclusive function, duplicate "Open" button, meaningless "Save" button, etc.
  • Everything can be integrated to the "Bookmarks" panel(Add/Remove/Edit path...) as qtutils.create_action_button as far as I can see

Rename "Bookmarks" itself

  • "Bookmarks" is not guess-friendly(except to Mozilla Firefox users?)
  • "Favorite repo" or other descriptive names would be better

Proposed qtutils.create_action_button of "Bookmarks" panel

  • Open selected bookmarked repository(already implemented)
  • Add current opened repository to Bookmarks
  • Remove selected repository from Bookmarks
  • Edit repository path(in case of moved to another path, etc.)
  • Move selected repository up in the list
  • Move selected repository down in the list
  • (optional)Add repository from user specified directory recursively

I agree, this can be made simpler just as you described. We can move all of the functionality into a "Favorites" widget and eliminate the need for a separate dialog. 👍

I'll put this on my short list since it seems like it'd be a pretty good change all around.

Yes my people have also expressed many a confusion over the bookmarks split personality. Looking forward to giving them this redesign, thanks!

Yes, Vdragon's suggestion is the way to go -- no more split personality. The bookmarks now handles bookmarks only :-) Thanks for helping me keep it simple.
