> In the latest code on https://www.fossil-scm.org/fossil/timeline and

> (1) Right now, pressing "Declutter" or "Details" is a server
> (2) Decluttered should be the default. Currently Details is the
> default. I spent a lot of time experimenting last night, and what I
> found myself doing every time I encountered a timeline was immediately
> pressing the "Declutter" button to get a high-level overview of the
> graph, then clicking on "Details" if I wanted to see more. From that
> experience, I think coming up in Decluttered mode would be a much
> better approach.
> (3) Details/Declutter for the entire graph is good and should be kept.
> But it would be even better to be able to see the details of
> individual timeline entries. I'm thinking that timelines come up in
> decluttered mode (showing only the check-in comment for each entry)
> but with ellipses or some other small icon at the end of each comment
> that you can click on to expand the details.
> You can help! Send me your ideas of what you think timelines should
> look like. Even better: send me mock-ups. Static HTML pages that
> you have hand-edited will be fine - just be sure to include the CSS,
> or better, put all the CSS in-line on your hand-edited mockup.
> You can also keep experimenting with the code I have on-line and send
> me your complaints and suggestions for improvement.
> Web developers - help me with this: For item (3) above, how can I
> make the ellipsis or icon to "show more detail" configurable using
> CSS? What's the best way to handle that so that people can customize
> the look for various skins?
