We’ve seen a good bit of OpenLayers activity at the conference so far. Last night, a crowd of 25 or so gathered at the OpenLayers Birds of a Feather session. It was a good opportunity to hear how people were using the library in their applications. We got plenty of suggestions on ways to improve things. Among them:
- More OpenLayers.Console.warn and error calls for better diagnostics in debug mode.
- Clean up examples: more consistent coding style, remove examples of deprecated behavior (or archive them separately), organize examples by category and make them more easily discoverable.
- Finish moving style declarations to CSS (pink tiles first!)
- Work on separating GUI from controls, more event driven design.
We hope that people have a chance to dig into some of this work at Saturday’s code sprint.
