My question is: Where is the little green light showing if you are forging or not, while running local server fim-0.4.0? Or more broadly, where can I see my forging status from the browser?
Could you could add a colored filled circle & a little text in default Mofo Wallet layout representing something like this:
1: white - doing nothing
2: green - forging locally - with number of block forged
3: orange - leased out with the estimated time to end (in human understandable form)
4: red - leased out with auto renew (for example 24h at a time if there is a technical reason it can't be shorter )
It wouldn't take much space and might be useful?
Now if I go to a link Explorer->Forgers, I get a list of what? I have forged blocks before but I'm not on that list so what does this list represent?
In my case leasing would be great if it was automatically extended until user decides to stop it. What is the point of measuring lease time in predefined number of blocks, other than a technical reason?
There should be an indicator that your account is forging. I even added a new API for that so you no longer needed to send your passphrase to the server to check that. The problem however is that the indicator is not properly hooked up yet to the server side events (websockets) so at the moment you need to navigate away to another page and come back to your account page before you will see the spinning wheel which indicates it is forging.
Right now it's a blue spinning icon next to the avatar on the pulse page of your account, but the colors you propose would work even better.
It's the top-ranking of the past 24 hour forgers. I figured people would want to be able to quickly see if their node is still producing blocks and how many when compared to others.
This has not had enough attention and is a the bare minimum stage right now.
The amount of code added for Mofowallet and FIMK 0.4.0 was quite a lot, now that we shipped most of it is the time to go over details like the ones mentioned by you. But please keep em coming, two minds are better than one, three are better that two I remember someone wise telling me once.
