This thread is meant to gather the issues from UX testing initiatives. It combines these three aspects:
* Dirigible website improvements
* Documentation
* Usability of the Dirigible Web IDE and platform as a whole

Dirigible Website: remove the social media bar from the Dirigible picture on the landing page. On the bottom of the page remove "Contact Dirigible" section and put it on the menu above. Remove some of the social media sites.
Divide Community section in the menu to Community and Contacts.

Add a Getting Started Page that contains:
* a short video of what is Dirigible and what is it for;
* a page with description about the different Dirigible options and how to start using them. It should be scenario oriented.
* a simple how-to guide to show how to use Dirigible
* a more complex end-to-end scenario

Documentation: Fix the current and the future content of the Getting Started page, it is not clear how many options are there and what they are suitable for.

Dirigible website: Rename the "Instant Trial" section to "Try Dirigible Out" or "Quick Start". It should lead directly to the Dirigible Web IDE. The user that comes for the first time on the Website does not need all the information listed in several consecutive pages. What happens now is that on the third page, the user has already forgotten that he or she wants to try out the product.

Dirigible website: rename Project and Features pages into a new About page, integrate inside all the content, and when you have More Info, show it under every tile. Currently, when you choose More Info, different things happen: it redirects you to a new page, to the documentation, or just below the same page.

Dirigible website: align the Dirigible pictures on the landing page and on the other pages. These pictures are different sizes now.
Insert a path showing the exact page or location you are on the website.

Dirigible website: change the look and feel of the documentation part so that it does not look completely different.

Mask somehow the URLs, it is confusing for the users the 4 or 5 different URL addresses they are passing through.

Dirigible website: remove this page: http://dirigible.eclipse.org/services/ui/index.html#/home

It doesn't give any valuable information to the user. It's better to incorporate its content inside the website, and to point the user directly to the Web IDE without providing any additional options at this point.

The buttons on the landing page "Get Started" and "Instant Trial" can be replaced by a video icon pointing to a short marketing video like this one for splash: https://youtu.be/qFDBsuJrGC0

Quick Start Dirigible: instead of the instant trial and pointing directly to the Web IDE.
Remove the login screen as it is confusing for the user. It says the user would stay anonymous and yet a username should be provided, without any password. Nowadays you can't find any login screen that requires only username.
Instead, we can remove the login screen entirely and replace it by an info screen saying the user will be logged on as test user #1. If the trial is just for demo purposes it should be OK. If the user really wants to work on Dirigible, he or she should register.

Dirigible and documentation: When launching Dirigible, users don't expect the wizard for the sample book application and they are eager to close it without even reading it. It provides a bit more technical information without explaining the overall scenario.
This wizard has to be moved in the getting started documentation part, as a video and as pictures and should include more overall information.
You should be able to launch it from the Dirigible Web IDE as well, but, for example in the Help menu. Currently its place is a bit strange, in the New menu.

In the sample application there should be an initial data, for example, 5 books should already be listed.

Add "Home" in the menu above. For some people it's hard to find out where the Home button is.

Dirigible: it's a good idea to put a short video when the Web IDE is launched that shows some of the options that are different from other similar tools. For example:

How can you dynamically show the changes in the UI in the Preview tab.

Dirigible: the different perspectives are hidden behind "Other" button. There should be listed all the basic perspectives such as Databases and they should be more visible. At the end of the list all remaining perspectives should be gathered in "Other Perspectives" button.

Dirigible: for all the tabs users need "Close All" and "Close All But This" options.

Accessibility: on the login screen, the text that explains what should be entered as a username is not in the focus of the reading program, and therefore people with accessibility issues can't read the text.

Dirigible: rename Database Browser, it's too confusing for the users.

Dirigible: display the UI Preview in the upper side of the screen, and move the source code below. Currently it's the other way round.

Dirigible: the .js files need some time to be loaded, and in the meantime the field where the code should appear, becomes black. This shouldn't happen.

Dirigible: Structure the project in a more logical way, high-level separation such as Persistency, Services, etc. Currently only the UI part is well-separated.

Dirigible: change the Web IDE theme so that it contains some contrast. Currently it's difficult to find different UI controls and functionality.

And it's difficult to read the logs in the Log Console because of the lack of colors and contrast.

Dirigible: when an error appears, it should be clear, and readable. Currently these errors are not user-oriented and well-written.

Dirigible: the icons in the different Dirigible browser tabs are the same and it's hard to distinguish between the Web IDE, the Dirigible website, the help, and etc.

Dirigible: insert a tool similar to Snippix for SAPUI5. It would be very helpful for users to start working with the Dirigible Web IDE.
