Description Pavel Feldman 2009-12-02 11:04:09 PST
Looks like majority of the settings are going to be related to the frontend. i was thinking that we could leave only string name/value pairs as settings for inspector controller and serialize rest into json on the frontend side. That way we have nice structured settings with no custom serializers in frontend, have basic support for name/value settings on inspector controller side and have no native serialization code for different platforms.

[PATCH] Proposed change

This change makes everything String. It supports reading boolean properties from the legacy store in order to properly handle debugger/profiles/resources enabled state. However, it does not read numbers properly - users will lose preferred attached height once migrated (only once). I think it is reasonable compromise given that all supporting code can be deleted...
