Published Status Visualization

Request for Feature Enhancement (RFE) Summary: Published Status Visualization with colours
Use-case: People with access to an AEM author should be able to be quick in recognizing a node as “never published”, “published”, “unpublished”, “modified” and/or “locked”. This should be true in each of the view modes, “Card View”, “Column View” and “List View”.
Current/Experienced Behavior: a) In Column View, there user has no possibility to get a quick view of the published states. The status of a single file can be verified only when clicking it. b) in Card View a user can see the published status but also does not easily detect whether a node is published or unpublished – although the cards can vary in size in case they need to show more meta data. c) In “List View” a user gets the only possibility to get a pretty quick view of the matter, although – as said earlier – the different icons look pretty alike.
Improved/Expected Behavior: If the three view modes would be enriched with colours a user would immediately see what status a node is in. I would imagine such colours: red = unpublished, green = published, blue = modified, grey = locked, no colour = never published. Please see the attached “paintings” for an idea I had how this could look like.
Environment Details (AEM version/service pack, any other specifics if applicable): Any AEM version which offers TouchUI.
Customer-name/Organization name: Credit Suisse AG

This is a good idea, probably I can try implementing this as PoC.

 

furthermore , the option can be added to user preference

I would love to get your implementation and to use it too. Do you plan to release it via a feature pack, a service pack or any other method?

I did this as POC only for column view.

I will post a blog about this implementation soon. The implementation is quite simple.

 

But if you want to try it early in local, package is at https://github.com/arunpatidar02/aem63app-repo/blob/master/packages/sitepage-status-color-1.zip , this is tested only in AEMaaCS, so may not work in other AEM or probably break something else in other version of AEM.

Tried that out on my local installation with AEM 6.5.13 - we're (still) on on-premise environments - but wasn't successful - as you could imagine anyway. Neither manually - even created full-path-overlays as another test - nor by installing your package.

The error message says "... line: 245 in ... /apps/custom/columnitem/columnitem.jsp The method getThumbnailProvider(Node) in the type ThumbnailProviderManager is not applicable for the arguments (Resource)..."
