      We have had a lengthy discussion in the mailing list about the need to build a modern UI that is both more security and does not depend on deprecated, end of life code. In this ticket, I intend to familiarize the community with the efforts of the community to do just that that. While we are nearing feature parity, but not there yet as many have suggested we could complete this task in iterations, here is an attempt to get the ball rolling. I have mostly worked on it in weekend nights on the occasion that I could find the time. Angular is certainly not my specialty, and this is my first attempt at using TypeScript besides a few brief learning exercises here and there. However, I will be engaging experts in both of these areas for consultation as our community tries to pull our UI into another era.

      Many of the components here can improve. One or two them need to be rewritten, and there are even at least three essential components to the app missing, along with some tests. A couple other things missing are the V2 API, which I found difficult to build with in this context because it is not documented on the web. I understand that it is "self-documenting," but the most easy-to-use APIs are still documented on the web. Maybe it is entirely documented on the web, and I had trouble finding it. Forgive me, as that could be an area of assistance. Another area where I need assistance is packaging this application as a Solr package. I understand this app is not in the right place for that today, but it can be. There are still many improvements to be made in this Jira and certainly in this code.

      The project is located in lucene-solr/solr/webapp2, where there is a README for information on running the app.

      The app can be started from the this directory with npm start for now. It can quickly be modified to start as a part of the typical start commands as it approaches parity. I expect there will be a lot of opinions. I welcome them, of course. The community input should drive the project's success.
