Hm, I have looked through the source code of gnome-control-center and calamares, both of which have nice looking timezone widgets, both of which are made in a way that requires 20+ png files to work. Have you ever heard of svg classes and embedded css, that would save you all but one image to be required (and could be scaled, because svg).
Haha, having everybody suggest me to run for the #openSUSE Board is flattering, but no, not yet.
There is a reason why I'm shouting at #openSUSE board with Foundation for the last few months, We have no idea what company will wanna acquire SUSE next, as long as we as community have say in actually creating Foundation, or joining an umbrella like SPI or Conservancy, we should!
Or we will face facts post mortem like Fedora is now with IBM looming over them.
And here's where many of us here, including me, differ from Apple:
"We agree with Apple that security is at the heart of all data privacy and privacy rights. Where we disagree is in who holds the keys. Your data isn’t truly private or secure, if someone else holds the keys."
@gnome GTK is a hell to work with in that case. You have to look up source code to develop anything sensible, which makes Qt and even Motif so much easier to work with.
@gnome I can only imagine that those additional classes written by developers of apps, which have to be additionally supported by theme developers, were written because of lack of docs on what class to use in what situation.
@gnome lack of docs on theming documentation for themes is the most frustrating thing ever. When developing apps I'm trying to use classes embedded in Adwaita, but I have to directly look into Adwaita's CSS to figure it out. Lack of classes docs is a major pain for developers. On the other hand, if I want to develop a theme, it's really freakin hard, because there is no docs. I still have to look up Adwaita. Lack of docs on theming is a major pain for designers.
With G+ shutting down in 10 months, it's the perfect time for Mastodon and federated networks to rise above being clones. Ask G+ users what they liked, why they stuck with it. Build better tools into these networks to accept the migrants. And of course demonstrate why federated platforms can be a better design.
