  • Timeline

    The Timeline in jrnl is the view of all the blog posts. We aim to augment this view through two mechanisms: Query/Search In the Timeline view the user should be able to search/query the server for which blog articles to view and the user should further be able to search within the search result. ViewSpec Timeline ViewSpec system which provides flexible ways for the user to choose how the list of document should appear. This is conceptually the same as the Dynamic Views.
