I like the look, but lets hear what others say.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hello all!

Some time without talk in this topic... Anyone still interested in the design guidelines?

I can still finish the static site generator to be used by the project - which provides an easy way to change themes and create/edit pages only by editing plain text files and calling the generator after that. I started a (Object)Pascal version (about 40% done) and a ShellScript version (about 20% done).

The layout showed a few posts before I can make in pure css2 (as requested) or css3 (responsive).

Interesting thread - I've just stumbled onto it.

If there is interest, I've edited the base FLWM code to support using/reading a conf file (~/.flwm.conf). I use it for modifying key bindings and desktop names without rebuilding. Adding support for "themes" - frame and button color/width/size/style, etc., shouldn't be too hard. Main problem, of course, is finding time to add that code. It's a reasonably small change, too. I think 20k. Not 100k.

I'd be interested to see this thread fix/describe the palette (more specific than just stating blue/gray): RGBA or CMYK values for the "stock" set of gray/orange/black/white/blue. Then themers and icon designers can depart from that set. Stating the stock sizes may help. I'm not even sure what wbar wants.

I, for one, like the idea that FLWM is the base WM. I also like the lack of boot splash, but I do use quiet in grub.

I liked the ElementaryOS BETA wallpaper (the blueprint): http://i.imgur.com/89v1S.jpg
Same!
..I wander could some (better) approximation of this blueprint wallpaper be scripted with ImageMagick ...

in some notes i found http://imgur.com/IX4WQAF &
Code: [Select]
# liblcms2.so.2 - missing

# tce-load -i  ImageMagick.tcz lcms2.tcz

convert  -size 1000x1000 xc:white -strokewidth 1 -draw 'line 0,0 0,999' -draw 'line 100,0 100,999' -draw 'line 200,0 200,999' -draw 'line 300,0 300,999' -draw 'line 400,0 400,999' -draw 'line 500,0 500,999' -draw 'line 600,0 600,999' -draw 'line 700,0 700,999' -draw 'line 800,0 800,999' -draw 'line 900,0 900,999' -draw 'line 0,0 999,0' -draw 'line 0,100 999,100' -draw 'line 0,200 999,200' -draw 'line 0,300 999,300' -draw 'line 0,400 999,400' -draw 'line 0,500 999,500' -draw 'line 0,600 999,600' -draw 'line 0,700 999,700' -draw 'line 0,800 999,800' -draw 'line 0,900 999,900' grid.jpg

Hello all!

Quite some time that no one posted anything about a new website layout and logo.

No one interested?

To simplify the maintenance of the site, I'll suggest a Static Site Generator and then we can build a theme around it...
