Desktop UI release

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

We released a new UI for desktop earlier this month. The major change has been a switch in the underlying technology from Dartlang to pure JavaScript. The earlier UI developed using Dartlang had certain limitations like the slider filter not working with Firefox. With pure JavaScript, the size of the code download at the user’s end has reduced by half, which should drastically improve the load times.

There are also some new UI features, which are minor ones, but hopefully useful 🙂
– Filter option for class, while searching for trains
– ARP date, i.e., date until which the railway reservations can be done
– Ability to switch between form-based & free-text and to change the mode of search within the search-results page
– Buttons for swapping and clearing of the search fields

Happy searching and please continue to give your valuable suggestions!
