Description

How hard would it be to add a list of favorite relays/bridges to Atlas?

From a UI perspective, this could work as follows: the main screen for new users would stay pretty much the same and allow users to search for relays or bridges. In the results, there would be some kind of "Add/remove to/from favorites" button, checkbox, icon, or whatever fits best. Once a user has 1 or more favorites, the start screen would list those relays/bridges like it would normally display search results in addition to offering the search functionality.

Having a list of favorites could be particularly useful when porting Atlas to mobile devices. I could imagine that the main use case there wouldn't be to search for relays/bridges, but to look up how your own relays/bridges are doing.

Arturo and I discussed this idea last week, and we decided against adding such a feature to Atlas. We didn't find a simple enough data store to put the list of favorite relays/bridges of a user, nor did we want to persistently store which relays or bridges a person is interested in. Another application than Atlas which uses Onionoo's data could implement this functionality. Closing as wontfix.
