Boartty is based on the following precepts which should inform changes
to the program:
* Support large numbers of stories across large numbers of projects.
* Support off-line use. Boartty should be completely usable off-line
with reliable syncing between local data and Storyboard when a
connection is available (just like git or mail or news).
* Ample use of color. Unlike a web interface, a good text interface
relies mostly on color and precise placement rather than whitespace
and decoration to indicate to the user the purpose of a given piece
of information. Boartty should degrade well to 16 colors, but more
(88 or 256) may be used.
* Keyboard navigation (with easy-to-remember commands) should be
considered the primary mode of interaction. Mouse interaction
should also be supported.
* The navigation philosophy is a stack of screens, where each
selection pushes a new screen onto the stack, and ESC pops the
screen off. This makes sense when drilling down to a change from
lists, but also supports linking from change to change (via commit
messages or comments) and navigating back intuitive (it matches
expectations set by the web browsers).
* Support a wide variety of Storyboard installations. The initial
development of Boartty is against the OpenStack project's
Storyboard, and many of the features are intended to help its
developers with their workflow, however, those features should be
implemented in a generic way so that the system does not require a
specific Storyboard configuration.
