Alexandre Rafalovitch commented on SOLR-12196:

My feeling is that "if not now" will be "close to never". Because it was a huge 
effort to move it to Angular 1 and some bits were not even finished for very 
long time (ever?). So, let's say another 3 years before anybody will raise this 
conversation with the same amount of "sunk costs" as right now.

As to how/who, yeah, that's the big issue. Has been, it seems for a long time. 
I am interested in learning React but I am not a frontend dev myself to take a 
lead. And certainly not a visual designer, which is the hairy part... But my 
feeling is that maybe it is worth asking on the dev list as a tradeoff 


> Prepare Admin UI for migrating to Angular.io

>                 Key: SOLR-12196
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-12196
>             Project: Solr
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>      Security Level: Public(Default Security Level. Issues are Public) 
>          Components: Admin UI
>            Reporter: Jan Høydahl
>            Priority: Major
>              Labels: Angular, AngularJS, angular-migration
>             Fix For: master (8.0)
> AngularJS is soon end of life, it [enters LTS in july 
> 2018|https://docs.angularjs.org/misc/version-support-status], whereupon it 
> will only receive fixes to serious bugs. Solr uses AngularJS 1.3 (the latest 
> AngularJS will be 1.7).
> This issue is *not* for upgrading to Angular5/6, but to start preparing the 
> existing UI for easier migration later on. See 
> [https://angular.io/guide/upgrade].
> This JIRA will likely get multiple sub tasks such as
>  * Change to [Folders-by-Feature 
> Structure|https://angular.io/guide/upgrade#follow-the-angularjs-style-guide], 
> i.e. mix html, css, js in a folder based on feature
>  * Use a [Module 
> Loader|https://angular.io/guide/upgrade#using-a-module-loader] like 
> [Webpack|https://webpack.js.org/]
>  * Use [Component 
> Directives|https://angular.io/guide/upgrade#using-component-directives] 
> (requires first move from AngularJS 1.3 to 1.5)
> The rationale for this lira is recognising how central the Admin UI is to 
> Solr, not letting it rot on top of a dying framework. Better to start moving 
> step by step and [perhaps write all new views in Angular 
> 5|https://angular.io/guide/upgrade#upgrading-with-ngupgrade], than to fall 
> further and further behind.
> This effort of course assumes that Angular.io is the path we want to go, and 
> not React, VueJS or some other new kid on the block :)
