Alt text

Customizations

Alt text

Kelvi allows you to make customizations as much as possible. Since this is designed for developers, It allows customizations to most of the part.

  • Add / Remove new topics to watch
  • Modify the update frequency
  • Modify number of questions to be displayed per topic ( 8(2^3) seems to be optimal, 5 is less and more than 8 is lot)
  • Modify how many different watches you want to track on a topic. (Active, New, Unanswered, Featured). Some topics may get Featured rarely, in that case you can disable the watch to not fetch data.
  • What is the default watch to be displayed, while launching the app.

Chrome App

Kelvi is also available as Chrome app. Get the chrome app package and load as unpacked Extension.
