Feeding Params into Descartes

2013-05-06 13:07:32 by jdixon

This is a relatively minor enhancement in terms of LoC but it would take too many words to describe on Twitter so here we are. Recent commits added support for passing interval and columns parameters into Descartes views (graphs, dashboards, etc). Previously you would always get the default layout whenever loading any Descartes page.

Under the new behavior you can now load (or share) a specific layout easily and predictably. If you change the layout using the toolbar, the URL automatically gets updated to reflect the new setting. You can copy and paste the current URL with anyone and trust that they're viewing the same thing you are.

Yes, this should have been the default behavior early on, but it wasn't.
