Community Development Effort: Mobile Support

I’d like to work through the language and determine the scope of the development needed for adding mobile support to B.Protocol. Prior to the genesis vote, I created a fork of the B.Protocol react client and hosted it here:
https://b-mobile.on.fleek.co

Github branch, where you can compare changes: GitHub - jnssn/react-client at development

I’ve got my latest update deployed there now and you can preview what B.Protocol would look like on your device. I am considering a few proposals, depending on the level of interest and support:

  1. A simple proposal for a one-time reward in governance share for community development effort of the mobile site (200 BPRO?).
  2. A slightly larger proposal that covers more improvements and involves rewarding a team of developers and testers (2000 BPRO?).
  3. A full UI overhaul with a prioritized feature list and governance share rewards for designers, developers, testers and other contributors (20000 BPRO?).

Regardless of the outcome of this proposal, I will likely continue to develop my own branch of the main client until an official mobile client is created. Please note it is currently configured to deploy automatically after a commit to my development branch, so it could occasionally break. I’ll look at setting up separate dev and main deployment sites, if necessary.

I think your potential proposal makes sense and I definitely support it, maybe it’s just the wrong timing. I see as a priority the attraction of more users (accounts) and thus a larger base of liquidators, and the current barrier is the high cost of the ETH network. A lot of users have switched and are switching to Layer2 solutions and I think the focus should be on that.

I’d like to translate. Is there a demand?

Mobile support is important. I would be behind a 1 time payment of 200 BPRO with a possible 1000 more if there are a bunch of community feature requests in the coming days/weeks for UI improvements. I think more than that is incorrect allocation of funds right now IMHO. Great work either way on the progress thus far.

Random feature ideas (will keep adding here as I think of them):

  • BPRO/ETH price near accumulated BPRO awards
  • Phone notification if vault is close to liquidation, you keep a tab open on it and it will ping you :slight_smile:
  • Advanced user/protocol stats section?

Just in case the community wants to fund @jnssn for any of these

yeah, it would probably be best to start with the mobile support and then take it step by step from there.

I’m planning on trying to merge my mobile changes with the new Maker tabs-based UI elements, then I’ll submit a new pull request. Possibly by the end of the week.

I’ve merged my changes with the official client’s development branch and deployed my updates to my fleek site for testing: https://b-mobile.on.fleek.co

Pull request here: https://github.com/backstop-protocol/react-client/pull/139

Feel free to test it out and provide feedback on how it works on your device.
