New Dashboard for admin

Hi All,

I've been working on a new dashboard for the admin area and would love to here feeback, suggestions etc. Here's a quick screencast showing where I'm at:

At the moment its fully client side using angular and bootstrap. I'm looking for ideas on how best to integrate with Orchard - I want the dashboard widgets to be easy to compose so maybe a dashboard part or stereotype?

Let me know your thoughts.

The idea is great, but now if you take what Sipke has been doing with dynamic layout, and you just say that the Dashboard is just another page with the Layout part, then you have it working, and the reusable widgets (elements) infrastructure is already in place.

So maybe you could give advice to Sipke on how to make his editor better, as you are the Orchard master of client side programming. Have you looked at what he has accomplished so far ?

I'm aware he was working on the layouts stuff and did consider how it would overlap but not seen anything for a while. Is it on github/codeplex?

orchard, main repository, feature/layout branch

Yep, it's on the feature/layouts branch. Steve, let me know if you want a walkthrough.

Please consider localization and right to left layout possibility for these works.

@sfmskywalker - you on skype?

@mehranrezaei - Thanks. Yes, ill consider this - bootstrap is RTL compatible which will help.
