After some discussion, let's just throw this away and see if anyone notices. There's a strong chance it's an "epriestley feature".
The homepage currently features an element called the "Jump Nav" which is a sort of CLI for Phabricator:
I think most users do not use this element very much (and, in the time since we built it, the global search has picked up a lot of its powers), but I use it pretty frequently. We should make it available as a dashboard panel.
To do this:
- Subclass PhabricatorDashboardPanelType to create a new panel type.
- Make it provide a jump nav kind of thing.
The jump nav exists in PhabricatorHomeMainController.
It's okay for this to be a bit copy/paste heavy, since it looks like Dashboards are a suitable replacement for the homepage and we'll be able to delete the old stuff in a bit. It also does not need to look particularly like the current version does, just have the same overall behavior (roughly: type D123 into a box to quickly jump to object D123).
