I think showing the folder names during auth is not very user-friendly, especially if one has to consider localization. For example, if a German user uses a calendar app, the app requesting the
contacts scope on the remoteStorage means little to him, since he doesn’t necessarily speak english very well. Even for an english-speaking user, “contacts” is a bit non-descriptive.
I’m not sure how a solution would look like, but I think we need one:
- The server could list other apps that have access to the same scope, and say something like “Access data from $APPNAME”.
- A special file inside the folder could be used to provider a user-friendly description of that scope. For example, an app could write “Kontakte” into that file for German-speaking users.
