I'm working on our Hippie Completion Plugin.
If you haven't tried it yet, go to http://www.codetrails.com/crowd-recommendation-tools and install it. It's awesome!
Anyway, i was working on a way to visualize how often specific proposals were applied before.
So far, we're doing this by simply appending a "m/n" String, showing how often a specific method(m) was applied out of all applied proposals(n). This works OK for a small number of proposals, but looks silly for larger values. e.g. "".substring() 2223/39643.
My idea is to use a color coded heatmap instead, where the color suggests how important a proposal is.
Two approaches here: 1) color the background of the entire proposal. 2) append a colored box to the proposal.
Here are two screenshots:
Keep in mind, the color scheme is just temporary.
I see some cons for both:
- The background color only applies to the String not to the entire line. Looks strange.
- Harder to read (can be improved with a better color scheme)
- The color information gets lost, if the completion popup window is smaller than the proposal. User has to scroll to see it.
What do you like better? Any ideas how to improve these approaches? Do you have a different idea?
