Concept of the interface¶
General layout concept of the interface¶
NEST Desktop consists of three segments with different purposes.
The left column (1) shows the navigation to route pages. The center area (2) renders the main content of the page, whereas the right column (3) displays the controller for the modification of the content.
NEST Desktop has three router views (Project, Model, Settings). The icons buttons on the left side navigate to these views.
The color code was taken from Adobe. The colors of the pages are taken from the split complementary of the NEST default color (#ff6633).
Router view (center)¶
The router view renders the page content via the URL. The project page displays a tab containing the network editor, the activity explorer and the lab book. The model page shows the model description which can be used in NEST Simulator. The setting page shows an overview of all settings for various components of the app.
