It had been my intention to augment the data feed functionality, probably in version 0.5.4. It is my understanding that accommodating the use of multiple data feeds is feasible with a reasonable amount of development effort.
As our network develops, I envision specialization in data feeds occurring. Doing a really good job of recommending park rates, for instance, may eventually involve complex custom software. It could be a full time job. A person or group that does a very good job of recommending park rates may know little about custodians or motions. Therefore, I believe allowing users to subscribe to multiple data feeds is useful.
Here is a mockup of the functionality I would like to see implemented for data feeds:
The gray box is a tool tip. Radio button groups are defined by the columns.
@sigmike, what is a very rough estimate of the amount of time it would take to implement this?
I encourage comments on this proposal, particularly from those who have expressed a different vision of how to implement data feeds.
Edit: If a user tries to remove a data feed that is currently selected for use, they should receive a message that they must select an alternative before they can remove it. That way, the software doesn’t have to guess what the user would like done for a particular category of data feeds.
