Issue #7247 new

Better UI treatment for repos with long names in the dashboard repo list (BB-8419)

ZeeZor Team
created an issue

We use namespaces to name our repositories and this can lead to some lengthy repository names such as "ZeeZor.Kiosk.Devices.PortManager" and on the dashboard when we list the repository names we only see the beginning part of the name and we have to use the "mouse over" to see the full name. I like the fact that you allow for the repository component to be enlarged vertically when you have lots of repositories but can you also either automatically size the horizontal or allow for it to be expandable. My preference would be to automatically size it accordingly but beggars cannot be choosers.

I attached a picture to give you an idea of what I see today.

Do you think this might be possible in a future release?

Thank you, Blake

    Hi Blake,

    Thanks for the feedback!

    The dashboard isn't in our immediate development road map right now, but I've put an issue in our internal backlog to look at this.

    In the meantime, you might try using a browser extension like Stylish to tweak the font size and/or width of that box. Some CSS like this might work:

    #relevant-repos { font-size: 12px; width: 330px; }
    

    Note that this might change/break if we ever change the markup or CSS around that, but it should work for now at least.
