[Freedombox-discuss] Plinth as the front page for FreedomBox


Currently, if someone visits their FreedomBox as http://freedombox/ they
are shown jwchat interface. This has the following problems:

- JWChat is only a small part of FreedomBox

- Other services available such as /owncloud and not easy to discover

- Even Plinth which should help a user discover various services is
hidden under /plinth

I propose that Plinth be the first entry point into all the FreedomBox
services. This can be implemented as the dashboard work being done by
@fonfon in #20 (with improvements). This approach has several advantages:

- FreedomBox gets a better looking front page

- Each service that is implemented in Plinth can choose to expose
various interfaces properly

- Enabling and disabling services in Plinth will reflect changes
properly in the front page.

- Plinth will be able to show the status and health of the FreedomBox
and request user intervention.

In order to make this happen, we need the following:

- Finish the dashboard #20[1].

- Have the Plinth UI look lighter and more like a portal than a Admin
UI: #72[2].

- Change FreedomBox setup configuration to redirect to (or directly
serve) Plinth: 772919[3]
