Implement online/idle/away infrastructure
Open, NormalPublic


Implement infrastructure so parts of the application can ask if a list of users are online, idle, or away.

T6868#98450 has some discussion. It's not yet clear whether we should store this in Aphlict or the database.

  • We can store the information in the database, and have the JX.Leader make an Ajax request every few minutes.
  • We can store the information on the Aphlict server, and update it when Websockets connect and disconnect.

epriestley raised the priority of this task from to Normal.
epriestley updated the task description. (Show Details)
epriestley added a project: Conpherence.
epriestley added subscribers: epriestley, btrahan, chad.

There's no clear way forward here.

  • I'm not sure how valuable T6868 is, but I don't think it's especially valuable, and would probably be fine as a v3 or v4 feature.
  • I think T7004 is very low-value, and possibly more trouble than it's worth.

I basically plan to hold this indefinitely until:

  • I come up with a clear technical direction; or
  • another, more compelling use case emerges; or
  • we get more internal momentum behind T6868.
