Target version:-


It would be very handy to be able to preview the description of an issue without having to actually open it.
I was thinking of something like the 'white popups' on the planning-calendar.

The details are subject to discussion :
  • a new available column with a preview button/icon or something (that would show on 'roll-over')
  • or this same behavior but on the title (with a setting to activate it ?)

Could be on the 'My Page' too.
Could be more than just the description, although the other fields are already available...

I'm willing to help on this. I have only little knowledge on ruby on rails, but it'll keep me busy during the holidays! :p
How should I proceed ?

  1. Wait for your validation / comments
  2. Get the sources from gits, code until I get something working well.
  3. Submit a patch ? (not a plugin for this I suppose...)
  4. Adapt following your feedback
  5. Wait for it to be released :)

Would that be a normal course of action ?

Ok, their tooltip looks nice indeed.
What do you suggest I do ? Wait for them to release it to redmine core or try to make a patch based on this theme ?

Patch would be more straightforward I think...

This branch should work with a stock trunk Redmine. We will be testing and releasing once 0.9 final is out.
