UI Integration for Query Helper
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

We would like to properly integrate the Query Helper into the query editor section next to the SPARQL editor, so it is more prominent for non SPARQL users.
There should be a trigger for toggling the visibility of the Query Helper inside the editor toolbar.
It should avoid jumping and support responsive displaying.
The section should gracefully grow and shrink when editing a query.

The section should gracefully grow and shrink when editing a query.

I found this extremely confusing when I tried out the corresponding Gerrit change – I think a draggable border between the two makes much more sense.

Yes, I agree.

…so it is more prominent for non SPARQL users.

As voiced in the recent meeting on tools that help users to query data, I think that it may be unlikely that we can combine needs of people who do not know SPARQL and people who want to edit SPARQL code well.

For a helping experienced editors with a better view I think it can make sense, as a teaching/onboarding tool I have considerable doubt.
