Change Jenkins configuration UI from tables to divs


    • Accessibility-Config-UI-tables-to-div

It includes multiple groups of users: people with disabilities, ones using mobile devices, or those with slow network connections. In general, all Jenkins users would benefit from better navigation and layouts. Currently the Jenkins's UI includes a lot of tables on configuration pages. These tables are very mobile hostile. The UI is also not in line with modern UIs.

Even so, labels for other things are above, not to their left (see this example for invitation duration – which is also pre Windows 10):
