In a way they do represent competing options. Not for styling (Filip’s win there by a long-shot) but for scope. I see these as the options:
- Separate apps for searching and CRUDing objects like Bibs (to be called something more generic like “Instances” in FOLIO), Items and Packages. This is what Filip’s current prototype shows.
- A single app for searching across Packages, Instance and Items with links to CRUD functions in context. This is what my wireframes show.
When we discussed this in the RM and MM SIG meetings and later in the Codex WG, people seemed to like option 2. It would also be totally possible to do both, but it seemed like we should focus on just one option for v1, since they are more or less two ways of doing the same thing.
That said, fleshing out the wireframes exposed some navigational peculiarities which might actually be solved by doing both options from the outset. Filip is going to look at that and we’ll evaluate from there. There may also be technical reasons to phase the work beginning with separate apps and add a combined inventory search app later.
So those are the considerations thus far. Looking forward to your thoughts, @lmccoll_lyu and others.
