Now that Namecoin Core’s
name_list GUI is merged to
master branch (it’ll be in the v22.0 release!), it’s time to move on to renewing names. As with the
name_list GUI, I’m trying to follow the principles of (1) keeping PR’s small, and (2) keeping all the interesting logic in the RPC method rather than the GUI.
In service of principle 1, I’m not touching the “Configure Name” GUI, nor am I touching the “Renew Name” button; this only adds the right-click context menu for renewing names. In service of principle 2, yanmaani has done the excellent work of adding a renew mode to the
name_update RPC method, which simplifies the GUI logic considerably.
So, without further rambling, here are some screenshots:
Astute readers will have noticed that you can now renew multiple names at once, like in Electrum-NMC. This was a minimal enough change from Brandon’s GUI that I figured I’d toss it in.
Some more code review will be needed, but I don’t expect any major obstacles getting this merged.
