Subject: [Galene] Galène management interface
Date: Fri, 23 Apr 2021 18:31:07 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Dear all,

There's been a submission for a management interface at

The main issue right now is whether this should be merged into the Galène
repository.  My personal opinion right now (but I might still change my
mind) is that I'd like to see it in a separate repository (and Go module)
that depends on Galène.  I've already started exporting some Galène
internals in order to avoid code duplication.

There are good reasons to keep the interface separate:

1. Galène is intended to be easy to integrate into an existing website
   (imagine adding videoconferencing functionality to a cat video forum or
   an e-learning platform).  For embedding, it would probably be better to
   provide the right hooks for an external interface rather than
   a complete management interface.

2. People's opinions on management interfaces are likly to be variable,
   and therefore it would be good to not bind too closely Galène with
   a single management interface.

There are also some reasons to merge the two:

I. Having a single repository will make it easier to install both at the
   same time.

II. Having a canonical management interface integrated with Galène will
    reduce user confusion.

I'd like to hear people's opinions on the subject.
