08:13:49 [Lachy]

08:17:16 [Jungkee]
Present+ Jungkee_Song
08:17:19 [Lachy]
sicking: no.
08:17:25 [bryan]
the use cases I am thinking of are similar, e.g. generically the ability to download content as a package and store locally for use in the app
08:17:35 [Lachy]
… I don't think it's just performance. Convenient for deployment to have a single file.

08:18:32 [Wonsuk]
Wonsuk has joined #webapps
08:18:53 [Lachy]

08:19:10 [massimo_]
massimo_ has joined #webapps
08:19:14 [Lachy]
maciej: For the use cases, it seems useful to download a zip and then reference its resources by URL.
08:19:27 [Lachy]
sicking. It would be useful to have a zip protocol handler.
08:19:46 [Lachy]
… It could possibly work with a URL, like jar handler.
08:19:54 [Lachy]
maciej: Is there a list of these use cases?
08:19:59 [Lachy]
sicking: I can get them.

08:21:39 [trackbot]

08:21:49 [Lachy]
maciej: I want to the use cases on the table.
08:22:12 [Lachy]
chaals: We will. That comes with the proposal. Discussion about it will take place over several weeks.
08:22:52 [Lachy]
… Testing. We had this as an agenda topic.
08:23:13 [Lachy]
… We could spend a lot of time looking in details, or we could spend the extra time actually making tests.

Topic: Testing
08:23:39 [Lachy]
Chaals: We need a test facilitator.
08:24:14 [Lachy]
… It's useful to have a person overseeing the creation of the testsuite. Not necessarily writes all the tests themselves.

08:24:33 [Lachy]
… I'm going to read them out, ask for volunteers.
08:24:56 [Lachy]
Art: People can think about it and get back to chaals or I.
08:25:22 [Lachy]
Chaals: The list of things we want is someone to co-ordinate things for DOM Parsing and Serialisation
08:25:29 [Lachy]
… All of the file specs.
08:25:33 [Lachy]
08:25:43 [Lachy]

… Templates
08:26:28 [Lachy]
… Progress events
08:26:40 [Lachy]
… This is a pretty small thing, but kind of annoying because you need another spec to test them in.
08:26:57 [Lachy]
… Push API.
08:27:01 [Lachy]

chaals: I have a proposal for something that falls into the App Cache area. Not sure if this is the right group. Called Prefetch.
08:31:15 [Lachy]
… It allows a site that uses a lot of resources again and again, give a manifest of files to prefetch.
08:31:24 [Lachy]
… Not sure if I'm going to propose it as a work item.

08:35:43 [Lachy]
Kenji Baheux: Starting with the use cases
08:36:05 [Lachy]
… The first one is on search websites, there are suggestions for what the user is currently typing.
08:36:17 [Lachy]
… Bad overlap from the IME suggestions and the search suggestions.
08:36:30 [Lachy]
… A lot of complaints from Chinese and Japanese users.
08:36:56 [Lachy]
… Suggestions shown based on Kanji.

rotsuya has joined #webapps
08:38:22 [Lachy]
… Two use cases. 1. On Windows, if you play a FPS game, and you press one of the IME keys, it creates problems. Need to avoid IME menu interferring with game.
08:38:53 [Lachy]
… 2. Entering a name in a game, native UI for IME suggestion doesn't fit with game design UI.
08:39:20 [evanli]
evanli has joined #webapps

Chaals: Would anyone like to work on it?
08:43:10 [Lachy]

adrianba, You mentioned the JavaScript API for disabling the IME. For a long time in IE, we've had IME mode CSS mechanism for disabling IME.
08:47:00 [chaals]
[Sorry Dmitry, but it was when you started getting impassioned that it started turning into a sales pitch… I thought you had explained your technical perspective well enough to let people think about the ideas...]
08:47:06 [Lachy]
… It's in one of the draft specs. Have you considered that and is it similar?
08:47:28 [Lachy]
KenjiBX, There is a function for that to hit at that. Similar to CSS, but in JS.
08:47:44 [Lachy]
adrianba, maybe we could consider if we need both.
08:47:58 [mjs]
08:48:18 [Lachy]
adrianba: Microsoft is interested in improving this general area, but highest priority is the the use case around positioning.
08:48:30 [Lachy]
… Seems like it's not currently covered by the spec.
08:48:43 [Lachy]
… If we add that, it would be substantial scope change.

topic: Selectors API Level 2
09:17:39 [mjs]
ScribeNick: mjs
09:17:58 [mjs]
LH: I'll start by giving an overview
09:18:15 [mjs]
LH: functionality of the find and matches methods is pretty stable
09:18:19 [mjs]
LH: test suite has many tests
09:18:26 [mjs]
LH: hopefully we can get implementations soon
09:18:40 [mjs]
LH: I'm hoping we can settle the naming issue for the methods find and findAll
09:18:59 [mjs]
LH: Issue for parsing comments in selectors still needs to be addressed - hopefully CSS WG can address it in Selectors 4
09:19:14 [mjs]
LH: there was a brief discussion with Anne about merging Selectors API v2 with DOM4
09:19:24 [mjs]
LH: and possibly introducing extra functionality
09:19:35 [mjs]
LH: I wanted to discuss the return type for the findAll method
09:19:48 [mjs]
LH: NodeList, Array, or some new object that provides a combination of functionality
09:19:50 [massimo]
massimo has joined #webapps
09:19:54 [mjs]
LH: Use cases:
09:20:03 [mjs]
LH: (1) get a collection of elements as a result of the query
09:20:07 [glenn]
glenn has joined #webapps
09:20:13 [mjs]
LH: (2) run methods that apply collectively to all the elements
09:20:24 [mjs]
LH: right now you have to iterate individually
09:20:30 [chaals]
q+ to try and squash the naming issue
09:20:34 [mjs]
LH: (3) filter the list or run additional queries on the list
09:21:25 [mjs]
LH: (4) do method chaining, just like in jQuery

09:22:08 [mjs]
LH: (a) normal JavaScript array - would give normal Array functionality but could not add selectors-specific methods
09:22:19 [mjs]
LH: (b) return a NodeList; but no Array-like functionality
09:22:54 [mjs]
LH: (c ) define a custom object which imports functionality from Array and NodeList, but adding Selectors-specific stuff
09:23:37 [mjs]
AR: I'm from ECMA TC39; hard to add Array functionality due to NodeList because of closures
09:23:39 [odinho_]
s/selectors-specific methods/selectors-specific methods (e.g. having a new .findAll() make a union)/
09:23:51 [mjs]
AR: I'd prefer to define an Array subtype or to recast NodeList as an Array
09:24:10 [glenn]
glenn has joined #webapps
09:24:19 [mjs]
AR: there's a preference to make these things Arrays from the pov of developers and JavaScript
09:24:27 [mjs]
CMN: I'd like to address names
09:24:41 [mjs]
CMN: everyone likes find(), findAll(), right?
09:24:45 [mjs]
(no objections heard)
09:24:54 [mjs]
CMN: that's straw consensus and it's a non-technical issue
09:24:58 [mjs]
LH: that about covers it
09:25:17 [mjs]
CMN: as an implementation question, what about compatibility?
09:25:40 [rubylin]
rubylin has joined #webapps
09:25:42 [mjs]
LH: the problem with converting NodeList to an Array is that NodeLists are generally live in many uses so you can't import mutable methods from Array
09:25:50 [mjs]
AR: I actually don't think that's a big problem
09:26:14 [mjs]
AR: first, the liveness is a feature of someone else holding an API
09:26:31 [mjs]
AR: this is not something that is foreign
09:26:42 [mjs]
AR: but for the question of adding new invariants, we can model that with proxies
09:27:11 [mjs]
CMN: any other comments, questions?
09:27:21 [mjs]
LH: matches() is implemented with a prefix in all browsers
09:27:29 [mjs]
LH: no one implements scope or reference nodes yet
09:27:43 [mjs]
CMN: any other implementor notes?
09:27:55 [Yoshihiro]
Yoshihiro has joined #webapps
09:28:06 [mjs]
TL: just an observation that the extra functionality for chaining seems like a much more generic feature - maybe should not be specific to Selectors API, maybe should be in DOM 4
09:28:19 [mjs]
CMN: back to agenda
09:28:37 [mjs]
CMN: working backwards, at 16:45 we have Web Intents - can't change that time, dial-in
09:28:48 [mjs]
CMN: session on testing, James has agreed to lead
09:28:59 [mjs]
CMN: the goal is to sit in the room and write tests - hands-on session
09:29:18 [mjs]
CMN: will end at 16:45 and will begin when we finish everything else
09:29:26 [mjs]
CMN: after lunch, short session on the Web Platform effort

... as a vendor, yandex has stuff which does apps based on a JSON package
10:45:12 [timeless]
... as our app is built from Chromium, it uses the same JSON as Chrome

jgraham: I will talk for up to 30 mintues. Then we will get people writing tests.
13:00:27 [Lachy]
jgraham: In the past 12 to 18 months, the testing situation at the W3C has improved a lot.
13:00:44 [Lachy]
… When CSS 2.1 was going to REC, there was a big panic about there being no tests.
13:00:58 [Lachy]
… Now we are starting to have some agreement about what format to write tests in.

… We have a folder for each spec, containing all of its tests.
13:02:41 [Lachy]
… For each, there is an "approved" directory and "submitted" directory.
13:02:42 [ArtB]
13:03:08 [Lachy]
… This is a bit annoying right now, so we are going to try and develop a system much like they have in CSS, where the spec can be annotated with relevants tests.
13:03:17 [ArtB]

jgraham: the situation now is that we are accepting tests in 3 formats, depending on what you're trying to test.
13:04:25 [Lachy]
… For this group, we want to test DOM APIs, so we can write tests using JavaScript.
13:04:34 [Lachy]
… testharness.js framework for writing tests.
13:04:41 [sicking]
sicking has joined #webapps
13:04:46 [Lachy]
… Similar in idea to others like QUnit, etc.
13:05:09 [ArtB]
13:05:15 [Lachy]
… For cases where rendering is important, we use reference tests. You two files. One uses the thing being tested. One creates the same rendering using different techniques.
13:05:42 [Lachy]
… If the two look the same, then you assume it works. If they're different, the test fails, something is broken.

… For testing JS, no manual interaction
13:09:27 [Lachy]
… Two types of tests.
13:09:33 [Lachy]
… 1. Synchronous tests.
13:09:49 [Lachy]
… [Showing boilerplate test file on screen]
13:10:48 [shoko]
shoko has joined #webapps
13:11:06 [Lachy]
… The function called test takes another function as a parameter. The inner function runs the actual test, with various assertions. e.g. assert_true(…)
13:12:22 [Lachy]
… [Showed example assertion from a spec]
13:12:45 [Lachy]
… [Now showing an example testing function that tests this assertion]
13:13:01 [Lachy]
… 2. Async tests.
13:13:28 [Lachy]
… Some tests depend on waiting for events, network responses or other non-synchronous features.
13:14:16 [Lachy]
… Test authors should write using the normal event handlers for the feature being tested and include test functions within those event handlers.
13:14:52 [Lachy]
… [Example on screen showing an asynchronous test function called by setTimeout]
13:15:20 [Arno]
Arno has joined #webapps
13:15:43 [Lachy]
… t.step() takes a function, which runs the tests.
13:16:11 [Lachy]
… t.step_func() is similar, but generates a testing function, which may be used directly as an event or timeout handler.
13:16:27 [Lachy]

13:18:37 [darobin]
13:19:29 [Lachy]
… We can set more properties on the test that are useful as metadata.
13:19:50 [Lachy]
… The CSS WG used <link rel="help"> to link to the part of the spec being tested.
13:20:03 [Lachy]
… What we can use instead is a help property to point at the part of the spec being tested.
13:20:15 [sangwhan]
sangwhan has joined #webapps
13:20:34 [Lachy]
… This helps identify which parts of the spec have and have not been tested.
13:20:57 [Lachy]
… PLH has been working on adding this for HTML.
13:21:15 [Lachy]
… I propose that we structure the directories based on the section of the spec.

jgraham: There are pros and cons. THis is an issue that can be discussed tomorrow or some other time.
13:23:26 [Lachy]
The step_func() method lets authors specify a timeout for an individual test.
13:23:41 [Lachy]
s/The step_func()/... The step func()/
13:24:05 [Lachy]
… The setup() method allows setting a global timeout for the entire testsuite.

s/step func()/async_test()/
13:24:58 [Lachy]
… There are a range of asserts. e.g. assert_true, assert_false, etc. (Others shown on screen)
13:25:21 [Lachy]
… assert_throws knows how to capture an exception and check that it's the right one.
13:25:33 [Yoshihiro]
Yoshihiro has joined #webapps
13:26:04 [Lachy]
… A notification API allows you to findout when certain things occur during the test, using callbacks.
13:26:12 [Lachy]
… There is lots of documentation.
13:26:25 [Lachy]
… darobin has written a tutorial as well.
13:26:39 [Lachy]

… With high fidelity user input, we can do things like drag and drop.
13:37:49 [Lachy]
… On Chrome and Opera, those browsers have been modified to allow web driver to inject events directly
13:38:11 [Lachy]
… For IE and Firefox, we get hold of the hwnd and pump WM messages into it.
13:38:29 [Lachy]
… The second audience are browser vendors.
13:38:43 [Lachy]
… They want to be able to test their browser before inflicting it upon the world.
13:39:22 [Lachy]
… The third audience is spec authors wanting to write conformance tests for things that can't be expressed solely in javascript.
13:39:35 [Lachy]
… Interacting with modal dialogs, for example, or other things that require user interaction.
13:39:49 [darobin]

darobin: One of the problems we had trouble automating is platform device functions. No way to detect and verify physical actions, like phone vibrations.
13:41:30 [Lachy]
simon: It's fairly easy to extend.
13:42:27 [Lachy]
… We mandate that implementations should communicate in a common way, to reduce fragmentation of implementations.
13:42:38 [Lachy]
… That's a high level overview. Any questions?
13:43:18 [Lachy]
SimonPieters: For the W3C tests, jgraham said we have 3 formats. Can we replace manual tests with WebDriver tests?
13:43:39 [Lachy]
simon: The manual tests which are a sequence of user interaction and checking the result are good candidates for web driver.
13:43:56 [Lachy]
… There may be edge cases where we don't have that functionality.
13:44:08 [Lachy]
… We have an advanced interaction API.
13:44:23 [Lachy]
… We have a basic touch implementation.
13:47:18 [Lachy]
Lachy: Is there any ability to interact with the browser chrome.
13:47:32 [Lachy]

ArtB: How much time before the web driver spec is at feature freeze?
13:49:17 [Lachy]
simon: We're kind of doing this backwards. The implementations are fairly solid.
13:49:40 [Lachy]
… Lots of major companies. Facebook, Mozilla, BBC, etc. are happy to put a lot of weight behind this.
13:49:49 [Lachy]
… The actual specification is lagging behind.
13:50:06 [Lachy]
… If you were able to look at the open source tree, you would be able to make a compatible implementation today.
13:50:26 [Lachy]
… We are working on porting our tests to a W3C test suite alongside the specification.
13:50:37 [Lachy]

Greg: I'm going to talk about web intents and our prototype implementation
15:47:21 [Lachy]
… Web Intents is a draft in collaboration with device APIs.
15:47:55 [Lachy]
… It's kind of like an RPC framework, when one app can start an activity that is satisfied by another web app.

is anyone there from Mozilla to bring up web activities?
15:48:59 [Lachy]
… The page has a way to pick an image from anotehr web app. If i click on this button, it takes me to another app called Quicksnapr.
15:49:23 [Lachy]
… Using web cam APIs to take a picture directly on the web page.
15:49:46 [Lachy]
… [taken several pictures]
15:50:03 [Lachy]
… Can pick one and send it back to the Imagemator app (the first one he started at)
15:50:34 [Lachy]
… Using file system API to save the picture locally.
15:51:13 [Lachy]
… I can now load up another local Chrome app and see the image on the local file system.

… The apps don't necessarily know about each other. The intents allow them to be loosely hooked up in an adhoc way.
15:51:58 [tantek]
mounir - glad to hear it. carry-on then. thanks.
15:52:02 [Lachy]
… The nice thing is that the first web app that launches the intent doesn't have to know about the next one.
15:52:17 [Lachy]
… That's the loosely couple benefit that comes from this system.
15:52:36 [Lachy]
… It does cause some problems though.
15:52:49 [dnkim]
dnkim has joined #webapps
15:53:03 [Lachy]
… The current status: We've done a tonne of work on the mechanics of the spec, resolving ambiguities, standard spec work, etc. Also developed an interchange format.
15:53:19 [Lachy]
… e.g. the details of how an image gets transferred from point A to B
15:53:40 [hbang]
hbang has joined #WebApps
15:54:08 [Lachy]
… More to come. e.g. When we first proposed this API, we were thinking in terms, than when picking an image, you would always get specific user interaction approaches.

15:55:40 [Lachy]
… The problems are mostly around the UI and figuring out the responsibilities of the UA and web app.
15:56:09 [Lachy]
… The first one is that when you have a few tabs cooperating. I have one tab that started the intent, another that satisfied the intent.

15:56:58 [virginie_galindo]
virginie_galindo has joined #webapps
15:57:44 [Lachy]
… We thought the web app picker would be a benefit becuase they can select a new app that could satisfy the intent.
15:57:54 [Lachy]
… The use of this picker is a lot higher than we would like.
15:58:04 [Lachy]
… It ends up being a lot of steps.
15:58:46 [Lachy]
… User has to check permissions when setting up a new app. Incorporating app discovery and installation into the picker doesn't work, from a user interaction perspective.
15:58:58 [darobin]
darobin has joined #webapps
15:59:27 [Lachy]
… If we imagine a defaulting model, where there is a system default for known intents.
15:59:41 [Lachy]
… So users wouldn't be presented with the picker so often. They would just use their default.
15:59:57 [shh]
shh has joined #webapps
16:00:12 [Lachy]
… It's possible that these issues may need API tweaks to solve them.

XXX: You spoke a lot about interacting with 2 tabs. Could you explain?
16:04:38 [odinho_]
16:05:10 [Lachy]
Greg: There's 1 tab that initiates the intent, one that satisfies it. What should happen if the user closes the second tab. How should that be handled by the browser or the web app? These issues are not clear.
16:06:33 [Lachy]
… I characterise it as more of a UI problem that browser vendors need to pay attention to.
16:07:26 [davidb]
davidb has left #webapps
16:07:27 [Lachy]
sicking: I haven't been following web intents, but I was under the impression that there was some mechanism to set up a communication link between two tabs. Is that there?
16:08:02 [Lachy]
Greg: The way the experiement works in Chrome is that there's always a UI that the service presents.
16:08:18 [Lachy]
… The tab is always opened either inline or in a new tab.

q+ to follow up on the distinction between user-invoked and page-invoked
16:14:16 [Lachy]
sicking: The impression I got around intents is that hte hard part is building a user experience that basically satisfied the people we want to implement the intents. The actual mechanics of shuffling data from one tab to another is on the hard bit.
16:14:31 [MagnusOlsson]
16:14:32 [hsivonen]
timeless, I object to adding new elements to <head> and I object to adding new void elements
16:14:41 [Lachy]
Greg: It's like a two sided market. The hope is that there are lot of clients and services invoking and servicing intents. Getting that market is tough.
16:14:56 [Lachy]
… Our initial plan is using features like that dropdown I was talking about earlier.
16:15:25 [Lachy]
… The reason we don't have that in Chrome 24 is because of the UI problems we discoverd.
16:15:37 [Shinji]
Shinji has joined #webapps
16:15:47 [Lachy]
… Having a bunch of eco systems set up around an API that was going to change wouldn't be the best plan. So we hid it behind a flag

16:16:07 [sicking]
16:16:12 [MikeSmith]
16:16:46 [Lachy]
npdoty: I mostly work on privacy in standards. To follow up, as I understand, the intents spec as it is now, the intents are done as service by a user clicking a button.
16:17:17 [Lachy]
… But a user could also potentially share any URL from teh browser UI, even if the page doesn't explicitly support the intent.
16:17:42 [Arno]
q+ to ask status on intents semantics
16:17:54 [Lachy]
Greg: The spec deals with it in a tangental way. It says that the intent may not be invoke by the API given and allows for the browser to get in the middle on one end or the other of the system.
16:18:21 [Lachy]
… The spec can't force the browser to do it, so it's allowed but not mandated in the spec.
16:19:25 [Lachy]
… I think we have a good sense of the interchange format to say how to transfer images or URLs as a data packet.
16:20:09 [Lachy]
sicking: We in Firefox had the need for something similar to this, but since web intents wasn't done, we did something else.
16:20:36 [Lachy]
… We have web activities which is similar. It has the same capabilities. Very much tied into apps. The user brings up an app, rather than a new tab.
16:21:32 [Lachy]
… one of the UI problems we had is that if you have multiple handlers for a given intent, you need to show some sort of UI so the user can choose.
16:21:40 [Lachy]
… what text string to you put in the title of that UI.
16:22:21 [Lachy]
… We put application names next to each option. I don't know if you can do that in your implementation, given that there is no trusted name for a website.
16:23:15 [Lachy]
Greg: In Chrome, the picker has a string that is related to the action that was performed by the user. There's a custom string per action and a generic one if we don't know what the action is. Something like "which service should we use?"
16:23:21 [Lachy]
Sicking: how do you describe the options?
16:23:47 [Lachy]
Greg: We think that using the name of the app is the most clear. The service can provide a custom string for this.
16:24:29 [Lachy]
… I think the reason that that ends up being useful than just the name of the application is that when you see the UI, you're picking an application.
16:25:01 [Lachy]
sicking: one problem is trust. It's possible to phish this.
16:25:20 [Lachy]
… I could change my icon and title to Bank of America, and fool the user.
16:25:42 [Lachy]
… It's part of the Chrome UI, so it feels more trustwothy, but in reality, it's part of the web content.
16:25:55 [Lachy]
Greg: That's a problem with the picker that we had.
16:26:33 [Lachy]
… That's one slice of the problem with using the picker that we discoverd. I agree there would be a phishing risk.
16:26:35 [timeless]

16:27:21 [Lachy]
Greg: The reason we were using a data URL is that there's a problem with web kit.
16:27:29 [Lachy]
… It's bug we need to fix.
16:27:47 [npdoty]
it seems like a concern that the picker also doesn't make it clear what kind of data is being passed along, in addition to it being uncertain whom you're passing the data to

16:29:05 [Lachy]
… Firefox has the concept of how often you've been to a page.
16:29:06 [Arno]
The question was about wether or not there was a work on intent semantics, as for example on the edit intent when the intent "returned" the data could either be a datablob or a data : URL

ArtB: Are there other implementations?
16:32:07 [Lachy]
Greg: I think that someof the problesm I talked about with tabs would likely show up with web activities applied to the same kind of use cases.
16:32:40 [Lachy]
sicking: We've only done it for Firefox OS. Have not shipped yet.
16:32:59 [Lachy]
… it's intended to solve exactly the same use cases. Picking, sharing, images, etc.
16:33:24 [Lachy]
… We do use it internally for things like the camera app. We have a button to open your gallery using an intent.
16:33:30 [Lachy]
… Other apps can hook into that.
16:33:46 [Lachy]
