Where’s the UI code…?

I’m trying to learn where the code is on GitHub, trying to locate the UI code but can’t find it.

Anyone have a map?:smirk:

No map, but it is throughout the WebODM repository (mostly in the JSX files, I think):

I’ve searched and searched but I’m a little lost.

I don’t understand it very well, but what I did to adjust the Load Boundary Button was use the GitHub search feature to look for the UI text for the item I wanted to edit, and then poke around all the results until I found what I needed.

That’s how I did this:

I’m sure there are better processes, but frankly I don’t know enough Web-Dev to know them :grimacing:

What editor did you use?

I’m on windows, don’t hurt me, so I looked for one.
Found one that’s for jsx only but can visualise while you code.


I’m (mostly) on Windows too (but all my Docs work is from my Linux-top since GNOME Builder supports rST better than anything else).:person_shrugging: Use what works for you!

For Windows, I typically use Visual Studio Code since it is easy to set up, easy to get Linters and code checkers, and is just nice to work with (IMO).

I did not have live preview, though! What one did you find? That’s really neat!


Seams nice

Downloaded desktop GitHub for lazy people like me and cloned WebODM. It was easier to search for *.jsx, found them all!


I probably have to learn JS and react!:grin:

I mean, I’d say it couldn’t hurt but I’m finding them painful :rofl:

Painful, why?

I do hope it’s not like Java because I hate Java. I like python and scheme!

I’m mostly joking, but to be honest, I’m just a very poor programmer. I’ve bounced off numerous languages over the years and I frankly struggle with it.

Python is the best I’ve done with any of them because it reads easier to me.

The JSX doesn’t look too bad for reading/editing, but I don’t think I could write from scratch any time soon.

You’ll likely fare much better with your familiarity with other languages :slight_smile:

Try a functional language like Racket, it’s healthy!
