ownCloud gets new user interface

By

Germany-based open-source file syncing and sharing software company ownCloud has redesigned the frontend of its cloud offering, with a code structure that is clearer and easier to understand.

The company said in a statement that the redesign was based on technical considerations. After continuous development since its inception, a large number of parallel JavaScript libraries, frameworks and components were created, which made the existing frontend increasingly complex but also confusing.

There was an effort made at this point to write HTML templates and decouple them from the data model in order to obtain a clean and understandable structure for writing code.

The new UI, known as Phoenix, is based on the latest front-end technologies such as WebPack, Vue.js or UIKit.

The frontend is now completely separated from the ownCloud server. Phoenix is a pure Web client that only contains HTML, JavaScript and CSS files and communicates with the server via public APIs such as WebDAV or OCS Share.

Phoenix is now in a test phase and will soon be available in parallel with the existing frontend via the ownCloud Marketplace.
