Ticket refers to horizontal nav list of followed/subscribed hubs

Hub Bookmark Bar

Which Hubs Show Up in the Bar?

Existing Fedora accounts logging into Fedora Hubs for the first time are going to have memberships in various FAS groups. Whether or not a given FAS group maps to a hub is going to depend. For example, git commit groups in FAS should not map to a hub.

That being said, existing accounts are going to have a set of hubs, so those users won't start with a clean slate.

In what order should the hubs initially appear in the bookmarks bar? For pre-existing FAS accounts, if possible, they should appear in the order of the FAS account's involvement with that group, from most involved to least involved. For example, how many times does the FAS account username appear in the fedmsgs associated with a given hub? Order the hubs in number of most to least mentions.

What If There Are More Hubs than Fit in the Bar?

There will be a dropdown icon in the far right of the bookmarks bar that users can click on to access any hubs that don't fit in the horizontal main display of the bar.

New Content Notifications in Bookmark Bar

This design is updated from the screenshots displayed above.

Previously the design featured circular blue emblems with the number of new / unread content items under each hub in the upper right corner of that hub's name in the bookmarks bar.

Based on user feedback (concern that large numbers would be common and would overwhelm users,) we changed the design to be a simple blue dot in the upper right corner of hubs that have at least 1 piece of new content the user has not yet read.

Below see a new mockup of this.

The updated mockup is from the ircpm.svg mockup file in the mockups repo at https://github.com/fedoradesign/fedora-hubs

Also note that if at least 1 hub under the vertical dropdown of additional hubs in the bookmark bar has at least 1 new unread piece of content, the dropdown itself will get one of the little blue dot notification icons in the upper right (shown in mockup above) and when the dropdown is opened up, the blue dot will be next to the hub(s) that have updated content.

Hub Aging Via Hub Name Dimming in the Bookmarks Bar

This is part of the Aging Hubs feature (https://pagure.io/fedora-hubs/issue/43) but worth mentioning here since a component of that feature directly impacts the bookmarks bar.

Hubs of a certain age will turn different shades of gray depending on their age. See issue 43 for more details.

Managing Hubs Displayed in Bookmarks Bar

Note that user management of the hubs displayed in the bookmarks bar is a separate feature: https://pagure.io/fedora-hubs/issue/11

This feature covers the design / functionality of the 'edit ...' link in the far right side of the bookmarks bar.
