Suggestion: spinning wheel for AnnotationHub

I'm putting together teaching material for using AnnotationHub, and I noticed it takes some time to do some searches edit: using display(ah). For example, species: Homo sapiens, and global search for "chip-seq". After putting in "chip-seq" it takes 30-50 seconds on my machine. Putting "chip-seq" in the Description field takes 10-15 seconds for me, similarly "peaks" in the tags field. I guess this just has to do with more things being added to AnnotationHub (I feel like it was faster when I've tried it in the past). My suggestion is that it would help to have a visual indicator that it's "working", so that users know to let the browser sit while it's looking for records.

Hi Mike -- actually a little unclear what you're talking about. I guess after display(AnnotationHub()) ? or query(AnnotationHub(), "chip-seq") ?

The spinning wheel is so... MacOS centric. Can't we have something more universal?

Oh sorry, forgot to say using display(ah).

I tried using release and devel, and Chrome and Firefox on Mac and experienced similar wait times.

Actually just "Loading..."

We made some changes to AnnotationHub display that seems to help with the speed of searches.  We are still investigating solutions to adding a progress/busy notification.

Thanks. I just tried out the latest version in devel, using Chrome. Here were some timings:

start with species: Homo sapiens, then:

search                    previous timing current timing
Global search: "chip-seq" 30-50 s         ~1 min  
Description: "chip-seq"   10-15 s         ~1 s
Tags: "peaks"             10-15 s         30 s

So a lot faster for searching Description, but seemingly slower for other fields. Let me know if you'd like me to try it out more (or maybe a specific version of AHub which isn't the one I'm using below?)

I guess Lori's commits are in git, not yet available via biocLite?

git clone https://git.bioconductor.org/packages/AnnotationHub

which has version 2.9.13.

That's great, it's much faster now using v2.9.13! Thanks

start with species: Homo sapiens, then:

search                    previous timing current timing
Global search: "chip-seq" 30-50 s         8 s
Description: "chip-seq"   10-15 s         ~1 s
