It´s been a while since the last post here, so I thought I should share some now.
Other than this, things have been a bit calm lately. But I have some goodies as candidates for 3.26 functionallity.
The first I thought I should show involves using the Wikipedia tag data from OpenStreetMap and Wikimedia´s thumbnailing API to obtain thumbnails for the map bubbles shown for search results:
Another thing I have sometimes missed is keyboard shortcuts to switch between street and aerial view, so a couple of new shortcuts for that (I choose alt+1 and alt+2 to match the ones used in Nautilus to switch between icon and list mode):
And finally another idea we had before was being able to edit localized name variants in OpenStreetMap (this helps improving searchability for users in cases where the name of a place might differ a bit in different languages).
So, I modified the edit dialog a bit, so that instead of the delete button for the name field, there is now a “more stuff” button:
Clicking on it shows a page for editing variants of the name:
Another feature that might be cool that I have been thinking up a bit on is showing upcoming departures for public transit stops (and maybe nearby stops when using your current position). There is not yet any concrete implementation of anything here and this would also need some designer love.
And also, when speaking of transit, we´re still looking for options for hosting an OpenTripPlanner server instance (you still have to run your own and use either the service file override or using the debug environment variable), so if you happen to have some ideas here, it´s always welcome!
