EFa MAILWATCH Front-end design

Post by Alleyviper » 14 Jan 2019 20:41

Hi there,

Is it painfull to have another EFA front-end setup on apache, but designed with bootstrap?

I want to try to create a sidekick login portal for customers, instead of showing MAILWATCH.

It whould fetch the currently php files, but having Twitter Bootstrap framework, giving a refreshed new look :)

Another way whould be to permit mysql remote login, execute and view data from it.

Depends, are you a coder? ;) :whistle:

I'm going to invest my time in helping MailWatch move forward. They are working on something like that, but it is still a ways off yet.

Hi there,

More a sysadmin than a coder. But I can do it for sure. First designing the layout, then understanding the sql query logic of MAILWATCH and finally integrate it. :)

Want to make things move on for EFA :)

Not a coder also, but I do manage ...

Also a Retired IT consultant with nothing to do ... so if I can help, count me on.

Hi there,

I was playing around with PHP MySQL login routine and exported data to datables jquery with success

The ideia is having a Bootstrap admin dashboard

Code: Select all

https://adminlte.io/themes/AdminLTE/index2.html
And build from there.

Hi there,

Created a github account and started to design some elements for the frontend using bootstrap.

First Victory:

- Connect to mysql database
- Query last 50 messages
- Datables usage, with realtime search and filtering
- Refresh function to reload page every 30 seconds by default but with the possibility to alter the seconds as needed

Dont know how the details for the message is generated on Mailwatch :think:

NOTICE: This is a raw in production usage with login protected page.
