Well I going to be a pain in the ***
Why have the config file in a .json format that don't allow comments?

Why have a update check, that you can not select for yourself? put it In a config file
Also why have the "icons" embedded in the app.xxxx file and not for them self.

I also found links to microphone and camera? in the files?

No problem, this is totally legitimate to care about the code you run on your computer, I'll try to answer all your questions.

This app is developed in JavaScript, so JSON is the best option for data storage. Do you really need to put comments in this file ?

Updates checks are done via GitHub so there is no data collection, but I can add an option to disable them if you want.

I'm not sure to understand this question, but all ressources are bundled into .JS files by webpack, this is how Vue.js works.

If you're talking about the AndroidManifest.xml file, there were mentions of camera permission, but it was disabled, and I removed it in the last version.

Well if you like to explain all setting in the .json config file like this; set the time out xx the does that etc,etc

It most be better to have the img/icon in a separate directory?

# timeout set the timeout for the ser
# the use bit is for...
# the expandmenu is for.. etcetc

this is .json file not good for.

{
"timeout":120,
"useBits":0,
"expandMenu":0
}

And I talking about the webUI for transmission

I don't think this is a an essential feature, you can simply create a file called definition.txt next to the JSON file to discribe all settings.

All images are already in separate files, the other icons are SVGs from Ionicons, so they're not really images.

Ok, in both case there's no use of the microphone or the camera whatsoever.

This description is not really needed due to all settings is self-explanatory. As author said, you can just put file with description in the root folder in case you really need it.

This is good idea to have option to disable update checks. Personally I don't like some side effect functionality.

Well. if you only download the webui and use it for the original transmission daemon therr is no readme file to explain that.
I have put a .txt file in the root folder.

The base64 embedded in the app-xxx file is the img i'm talking about. Noting major. but that and all translation are embedded in the same file makes it larger and heavier every time.
I think it better to keep stuff light/slimmed down

And in ex: chunk-vendos there are link for ex: pwa-camera-modal? and "ClipboardWrite"]="clipboard-write",e["Microphone"]="microphone"} "Geolocation"]="geolocation" ect.etc
Are they used for something?

Ok I totally understand, I'll add an option to disable them.

Ok I see, you're right, but like I said, webpack make it hard to have separate files as it bundle everything into JS files to improve loading time. But I will try to move the translations into separate files to load them dynamically.

Everything that's in chunk-vendors are third-party modules. Those are simply UI elements from Ionic's pwa-elements, I use it to display toast messages.
If I wanted to use the microphone or geolocation, your browser would ask you the permission, because you have to authorize it manually.

Absolutely great work. Just some another non issues.
How about a button for update block list manually, and the nr of the updated list number? ( like update list have 354896 in the blocklist/ after update etc,etc)
Also if possible to add/change Authentication from the webUI? and using the original transmissionbt daemon?

Have you tried to contact the creator/maintainer of the transmission bittorrent ?
To maybe add this in/or version of it to the mainstream?

I'm not sure if it's possible to refresh the blocklist from the Web UI, but I will take a look and try to add this feature, great suggestion.

For which use case do you need this?
If you're talking about storing your credentials in the Web UI, it's possible, but for security reason it's not recommended to save credentials in the browser's LocalStorage. And you still have to enter your credentials to access the Web UI, so it's not very useful.

I don't think they plan to change the default Web UI for Transmission, and my Web UI is still a very young project that needs a lot of improvement, but your suggestion is flattering!

The original and other webui can update the Blocklist.'

If there is an option for add /set the user/pass why not use it? Not so save it to the browser only, save it to server setting. Update the daemon setting file.

Perfect, so it won't be too hard to add this feature.

No it's not possible to change the username/password from the Web UI, you have to do it from Transmission.
