When subway is disconnected because the computer went to sleep or loss of internet, there is no notification in the application. This gives the impression that subway is broken and not sending updates when in reality its just disconnected.
Expected: A notification that subway is offline/disconnected from server
Actual: No change in state of application. Subway appears to be connected, except no messages will ever come through.
Alert user of disconnection from server (issue #99)
Pushed a minimal solution to this. All it does it throw an alert box.
Much more could be done to improve the UI and handling of a disconnect, so I'll leave this open.
Some ideas for more elegant notification of a disconnect:
I went ahead and added the fade, by putting opacity on the main container. I like the idea of adding a reconnect button somewhere on the page.
