The Latest Work On The Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 UI
Written by Michael Larabel in Phoronix on 5 January 2014 at 12:03 PM EST. 3 Comments
For those interested in driving Linux and open-source benchmarks from a graphical user-interface (GUI) over the extensive command-line provided by the Phoronix Test Suite, the new web-based UI and with WebSocket development API continues to progress for the 5.0-Plavsk release in a few months time.

My month-long Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 hackfest in Russia is continuing quite well. I will have an extensive write-up and likely video overview in the next few days, while to share today are just some of the latest screenshots, a reminder of the ongoing work, and a call-out for continued feedback on this often requested feature and other work.

If you're not yet up to speed on the Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 user-interface work to complement the CLI and to replace the old GTK2 GUI in the Phoronix Test Suite 2.0 days, first it's most important to read Phoronix Test Suite 5.0's GUI To Make Benchmarking Easier. That article covers the basics, the WebSocket API that's also being developed in tandem, and the reasons for going with an HTML5 interface over say a GTK3 or Qt version.

Here's a few screenshots as of the latest Git code on Sunday while stay tuned for many more details and a possible video walk-through of the current progress in a few days. I'd estimate right now the GUI is only 15~20% complete where I have the plans drawn for the Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 release in Q1'2014. Any and all feedback is certainly appreciated. Commercial support and other custom engineering engagements also are available for the UI as with the rest of the Phoronix Test Suite,, and Phoromatic.

A lot of the work in the past few days was getting the local search working, continuing to refine the WebSocket and other new public interfaces, and all-around work on the HTML5 GUI for facilitating this open-source cross-platform benchmarking.

Many more features and other improvements are forthcoming!
