Hi Cozy Community,
One of the most installed application developed by the community is the Data Browser. It’s an app that allows to see the data stored in your Cozy, kind of PhpMyAdmin for Cozy. All data are displayed through raw lists. It’s successful because users see what happens under the hood of Cozy. Additionally, it allows to remove broken data or perform mass deletion through it.
Unfortunately, Loic, the author, doesn’t maintain it anymore. It’s sad because the application is buggy and requires some improvements to be fully useable. At Cozy, we are focusing on the main applications. So, currently, we cannot work on it.
The Data Browser is successful and increases trust the user has in the platform. It makes things more transparent. That’s why we would be glad to see the application maintained. So, we would like to know if someone of the community would agree to become the official maintainer of the Databrowser.
If you are interested, a member of the Cozy team will mentor you. He will help you to set up a development environment and explain you the way Cozy works. He will provide you assistance to learn BackboneJS and ExpressJS. If you want to perfom a full rewrite with another technology, that’s something we can help for too.
PS: Of course, don’t hesitate to share this call for contributors!
