As of Squirro 3.5.8 LTS, the Items Widget should be used instead of the Cards widget. The Cards widget is only maintained for backward compatibility, but will eventually be removed.
The card widget is a very powerful result visualization widget. It shows item details inside cards that can be arranged in different modes.
Additionally, it can be configured to visualize the source type, to group items by date and can have a button to share the item link via email.
The whole card area is clickable; when clicked, the card expands to show the full item, with body and keywords.
Vertical: Show cards in vertical mode.
Horizontal: Cards are shown in horizontal pane.
Responsive: Vertical scrolling, different number of cards from left to right depending on width of available space
Source Abbreviation: Shows the initials of the source name as an avatar on the card
Icon / Logo: lets you specify a facet that contains a link to an image that will be displayed as avatar
Hide Avatar: Option to hide the avatar (17.04.2019: currently still called hide source)
For PDF preview, the PDF preview generation in the thumbnail extraction step has to be activated in the respective data handling pipeline.
Tag/Facet Display on Cards#
In “End User mode” for Facets Display, the option “Show tags on card” can be activated.
The selected facets are then shown as chips on the card.
There is also an option to “Show facet name in tags”. By default only the facet values are shown.
