KubeVela designs and implements the UI-Schema specification for the scalability of components, workflow steps, and operation and maintenance feature resources, in the case of variable input parameters, to achieve a more native UI experience.
At present, the UI-Schema specification mainly acts on the data input side and will be extended to the data visualization side in the future.
The components, workflow steps, and operation and maintenance feature types with different UI-Schema working principles are defined through CUE, which we call XDefinition, and almost every definition includes the definition of input parameters. for example:
In the above example, the user input parameter is
In the UI we want the user to be able to set the number of replicas via a number input form.
Its workflow is in the figure above. The API Schema is generated through the defined CUE, and then the default UI Schema is generated through the API Schema. If there is a custom UI Schema, the default configuration is patched with the custom configuration. The UI renders the front-end page based on the final UI Schema.
The spec are as follows:
- Ignore: There are subordinate fields, and the current field is not displayed.
- Group: render as a titled container
UI-Schema mainly extends front-end react components, refer to https://github.com/kubevela/velaux/tree/main/src/extends
