This is just to let you know what my development plans are (as part of my university project).
I've already posted about improving the speed at which thumbnails are loaded.
My next few changes are then going to be to do some refactoring of the code and upgrade the FlickrNet library. I won't post these changes to the forum because they are not likely to offer anything new to you but the should help me make my later changes.
1. Tag syncing - sync changes in tags from local copies to Flickr and in the opposite direction, ideally without having to retransmit the entire image to save bandwidth and time.
2. Two way syncing - make it so that that changes on the Flickr side are reflected locally e.g. if files are deleted from the set on Flickr or new ones are added then do the same in your local copy
3. Improve the current command line functionality so that you can e.g. specify which folders/sets to sync and in which direction.
In order to do this I will have to make some UI changes which is where I'm really asking for feedback. Because the changes I'm hoping to make will effectively pair the local folder with its Flickr set (as it is now but even more so) I am thinking about removing
the Tree List pane on the left of the window and instead having just a list of pairs which you can add, delete, edit, etc. It seems to me that this is the simplest way to do it without making it too confusing. I have a photoshop mockup you can look at here:
Please note, this is a very rough mockup, I would also have buttons on the menu bar allowing you to create a new link or remove an existing one as well as sync them up or down. Also I would try to keep it so that you could have subfolders nested and clicking
the top one would select them all, that might be more difficult though.
I'm eager to hear if anyone has any thoughts about this.
Thanks for reading.
