22: write my own Kusto Explorer
This morning when I was running out there, I finally reach out this idea: I need to write my own Kusto Query Explorer, because this thing is terrible. It is extremely painful to watch someone else to use it too. I think the latter is the worst. When I see someone else is struggling with some software, I have to do something. Give me a week.
too busy lately (will explain in my next). I did create a solution and put something in it, but far away from being ready. Probably will be the project for next month.
Update again: (2020/02/18)
I gave up, because I really don’t have time to finish.
The vanilla Kusto Query Explorer is very awkward to use. Something I really want to improve are:
- the query window:
one thing particularly –> differentiate the environment of the current query, e.g. I should be able to mark a window as “production”, so it will alarm me if I am doing any update.
- the result view
- git integrated of the editing function
I may still do this thing if I have more time later this year. But I don’t see it happen in a few months.
