HTML5 Interface Update

Recommended Posts

I like it, really it is great to see that someone is following my suggestion and changing this old ugly style.

 

Well, there's a bug I don't know if it is the tab or whatever but when I clicked button "staff" it shows a lot of undefined

And layout is a bit broken(not fully responsible) later I will fix it.

Something was forgotten in the post:

 

Flash app are working with HTML5.

 

Trade app is glitched and we already know about all the possible bugs.

 

For now, applications will stay in flash. Later they will be converted into HTML5.

 

The only HTML5 application is Chess. 

 

How to access apps:

Html5 works 100% in mobile, when trade/apps be finished, you will be able to use them in any device.

You could improve even more this new update of html5

 

1) the bar below is something big the one above where the logo of (xat.com) would be fine

The buttons to close session does not work and edit the profile still does not work

Trade does not work

 

Another problem is that this and the majority of applications looks great when the background takes up a lot of space

Another problem that I'm looking at is when you try to open the groups or the store and want to go to some popular chat or go direct to trade and I do not open another window but send me direct closing to which I am

Just a small reminder: the web page is still in beta so we may change the page in the future with better improvements!

 

Ideas and improvements are appreciated and will help to make it better.

 

Thank you.

We should keep in mind that xat may want to preserve its overall user interface, whether it's the chat or the new web. I'm sure they could've created a Discord 2.0, but that wouldn't be xat anymore, would it?

 

While the new web looks like it doesn't bring many changes, it actually does and I'm not sure why new features wouldn't matter. I'm quite excited about them.

 

So let's take a look, what actually seems to be different?

  • We now see groups which are currently promoted. I think that's pretty cool for people who often promote their groups.
  • There's a quick access to featured, popular, supported groups, as well as groups with games.
  • We now have a linking to the xat facebook page. 
  • It's more obvious what options you have for the group you're at (embed, inapp, maybe more in future?).
  • There's now a login button, a logout button.
  • There's account information (perhaps we'd see more information in future, such as if your account is held).
  • It appears we'll be able to edit Settings soon, which is a good step in the right direction to get rid of the macros-mentality.
  • The bottom navigation is more dynamic, I like the fact that it doesn't reload the page anymore, when you switch tabs.

Overall the design is more elegant and modern. I think Admins did a pretty good job, and I think it makes sense to introduce this now, as xat is slowly getting rid of flash, switching over to HTML5 entirely soon.

Each site has its own interface. It's not because people likes more the discord interface that xat has to do the same than them. So yeah, if it was about to be changed, it wouldn't be xat anymore. We had already a fast thread about that but for the chat interface and all the points were put on the table.

It doesn't matter if it's in beta or if more features will be added. The general design of the chat box and its related features still hold the general design of 12 years ago.

 

If you don't like it, then suggest improvements/ideas?

 

It's easy to criticize the work but not suggesting ideas to improve it. If you come here, it's to suggest ideas and improvements to make it better and not belittle the work of the admins. I can understand that you don't like much xat but it's not a reason to be so negative like that about. Users feedbacks and ideas are always appreciated but un-constructives comments will not help to make it better.

 

Pretty sure if it was your work, you would understand my point and you would rather see ideas/improvements than old critics like "it looks like the design of 12 years ago." I really hope, you understand what I want to say and not turn my comment into something I didn't imagine. Anyways Lafleur said everything about your previous points.

Please take a look at The Chromium Projects' Flash Roadmap:

  • Flash Disabled by Default (Target: Chrome 76+ - July 2019).

  • Flash Support Removed from Chromium (Target: Chrome 87+ - Dec 2020).

 

Oh well, we still have the time to build HTML5 before the end of Flash. Why are you so preventive?

 

HTML5 chat is in development (enough to use it), most of the xat things in flash will be HTML5 soon. 

 

We are not so late compared to the planned date for the end of Flash.

You mentioned the smileys application but we have a better thing for that added somewhere in the lab.

 

This app will be eventually removed since it's a really awful app with lags and missing smileys.

Forgotten in the grey hole.

 

Thank you for noticing it.

Do you mean it should open the page in another tab instead of the current one? Possible!

I got the same bug (on Help):

All I did was click the "+Help" button. Seems to happen every time.

 

Also, the first tab should be rendered active when the page loads, as many users put their rules here and wish them to be visible by default (or at least add this as an option).

If I want to use chat in the classic format, will it be possible? (edit)(hmm)

or is it already possible?

If you are talking about the pools, they will be like flash in the future. Don't worry about.
