The PPSR Server GUI has been unchanged for a long time now however, with SBNG 3.0 we will be releasing an update to the Server GUI, as well as adding some much-needed functionality with an automatic backup (thanks to Ian Macpherson) and a brand new GUI Settings page.
The initial page of the server application will look somewhat familiar, but the buttons have all been moved to the bottom of the page, and the open PPCS Tables are now on the left-hand side of the application. The right-hand side now has a series of settings that can be changed visually as opposed to having to be changed in the INI file.
This GUI has grown significantly from the previous version but we have created an additional more “compact” view that can be shrunk and grown allowing for the GUI to be used on smaller screens and when you only want the necessary information.
Finally, we will add both a menu and a status bar to the application. The menu will allow for quicker control of the server, the status bar will show the status of the server as well as the server uptime, to allow for easier use at a glance.
This visual overhaul is in line with our goal of bringing Superbase squarely into the 2020s with easy to use, friendly UI that will be familiar not only to those that have been using Superbase for a long time but also to those new to Superbase.
