App Metrics System (Notes)

Some brief notes on the flow of information in the app metrics system I'm working on so that I remember how it works when I come back to it...

(1) An app is selected in the gui from the list of apps/projects that the user has access to.

(2) A request is sent to the server to get the xml config page which contains the css styles and the markup/layout for each of the pages (including the list of widgets contained).

(3) The xml config page is rendered on the gui and for the default ('dashboard') page a request is sent to the server to get the values for each of the widgets.

(4) A subsequent request is sent for widget values is sent to the server for each of the other pages the first time they are selected and also when refreshed.
