Needs a user centric story - add to existing ticket

OpenMRS Web Framework

From discussions in #MOZ15, we would like for the OpenMRS Platform to evolve toward providing a web framework that allows developers to add functionality using standard development tools (e.g., HTML5 + JavaScript against REST services, AngularJS apps, OWA , ...).

Burke Mamlin

Ranking REST tickets on 5 Aug design call.

Burke Mamlin and Darius Jazayeri discussed 24-July-2015 and Darius will make a Talk topic to move this forward.

Bahmni technical deep dive scheduled for 4 June Developers Forum.

17 June design forum will discuss progress (coordinating various efforts). As well as look at how to make REST services more robust. Darius still working w/ Bahmni on fundamental pieces of their web framework to pull into OpenMRS (will talk about this on future call).

25 June dev forum on REST web services: how to substantially improve them W/ Burke Mamlin & Darius Jazayeri

Vertical Packaging

OpenMRS has a lot of flexibility and extensibility with a central concept dictionary, RBAC, forms, reports, modules, and apps; however, it's not always easy to know which metadata goes with which functionality. The goal of vertical packaging is to define best practices for managing and relating all of the components (metadata & behavior) that work together to solve a particular problem within OpenMRS. Eventually, we envision a way that someone could easily add the MDRTB package to their OpenMRS implementation to begin treating MDRTB patients... or upgrade their Oncology package, etc.
