So, what sort of style are we going for? I think reflecting the ethic
of Fancy would be a good idea,
rather than just slinging a random design together.
|Re: [fancy-lang] Design||Nils Haldenwang||9/22/10 10:36 AM|
I am not very creative concerning design, would like
to see some prototype or something, to imagine
what "reflecting the ethic of Fancy" could mean.
Sorry, I am programmer only ^^
I am really looking forward to see something.

Yeah. Well I think it should be a clean, readable and modern design.
I especially like http://ooc-lang.org/. I think it's just very clean
Would be nice if you would come up with an initial draft and post it
PS: Oh and thanks for wanting to help! It's very much appreciated. :)
|Re: [fancy-lang] Design||dominic wood||9/22/10 10:59 AM|
What is the aim of Fancy as a language? What's it based on? Stuff like that will help me work out a concept :)

Oh sure. OK, here's a short summary:
Fancy is a dynamic, pure object-oriented programming language inspired by Smalltalk, Ruby and Erlang.
You might also want to check out the wiki @ http://github.com/bakkdoor/fancy/wiki
I hope this somewhat answers your questions? :)
|Re: [fancy-lang] Design||dominic wood||9/22/10 7:11 PM|
Cool, so we're after clean, usable and robust looks. One last thing, any colour preferences?

Ok, mind giving me a couple of days to get a rough design done? I'm sort of on holiday until Sunday, but I can have some ideas down by Monday if that's OK with you?

Of course it's okay, there is no schedule at all. :-)
Have a nice weekend!
Looking forward to see it.
|Re: [fancy-lang] Design||dominic wood||9/23/10 1:47 AM|
Great and same to you :)
|Re: [fancy-lang] Design||dominic wood||9/27/10 3:55 AM|
So I had an idea for this last night and I'm knocking up a quick layout for ya. I'll send you a screenshot in an hour or two to see if you like or not :)
|Re: Design||Christopher Bertels||9/27/10 4:13 AM|
Cool, excited to see what you got so far :)
|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||dominic wood||9/27/10 4:15 AM|
I went with a palette from ColourLovers and modified it a bit. I've gone for a selection of ice cream like shades. I'm quite liking it, but whether it fits your brief is another question lol.
|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||dominic wood||9/27/10 4:46 AM|
Right, here's what I've knocked up in an hour or two!
Is this sort of thing ok? It's mainly the style and colour scheme I'm worried about.
|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||dominic wood||9/27/10 4:49 AM|
P.S. I know it's not exactly what you asked for, but programming languages always have such boring websites :P

I do like to top (logo / slogan + menu bar).
Does anyone else have opinions?
|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||dominic wood||9/27/10 5:34 AM|
The colour scheme is what I was concerned about, I'll try it in a few different colours :)
|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||dominic wood||9/27/10 5:50 AM|
Here's a quick blue one: http://pixelthump.net/Fancy/Fancyblue.bmp
|Re: Design||Christopher Bertels||9/27/10 5:57 AM|
Hmm. Well I think the very light blue makes it hard to read the text.
I guess I liked the brown version more. Maybe a darker blue color? Or
something else? Don't know :)
For example, I like the blue with white color scheme on ooc's website:
Another small thing: Right now the design only contains text. Would be
nice to have some small images in there as well (but I suppose there
aren't any since this is an early draft anyway).

I've been naughty and stolen their colours to see how it looks, I'm liking the change myself.
|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||dominic wood||9/27/10 6:16 AM|
I'm trying to get the basic style and colours out of the way before I start with the content etcetera. The actual design is very simple and I plan on adding three quarters of a ton of sex appeal one we get the basics down :)

extra color. It feels very cold somehow, whereas the ooc website feels
a lot warmer (I suppose due to the additional colors and images).
Also, maybe you can play a little with the "box-background" colors.
And maybe the text could use a different color than the background
(e.g. not having everything in blue).
|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||dominic wood||9/27/10 6:35 AM|
Yeah, I'm already changing a lot of stuff :) I'll come back in a few hours with something a lot more developed.

|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||goyox86||9/27/10 6:52 AM|
The site distribution seems fine to me! :)
But the color scheme, just as Christopher says, IMHO has a lot of brown.
I like the logo!
|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||dominic wood||9/27/10 6:56 AM|
Thanks :) We are now going for a blue design, I'm working on the content as it's a bit flat and boring lol.
|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||goyox86||9/27/10 6:57 AM|
I like the last one!, in the "How about this" section will be convenient a white color, with some syntax highlights for the code.
Again! Nice work!
|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||Nils Haldenwang||9/27/10 6:58 AM|
I like the light blue design as well, would agree with what bakkdoor
said about the first two drafts. But the last one looks very nice, go
on with that!
|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||Victor Hugo Borja||9/27/10 8:58 PM|
Personally, I like the fonts and the overall distribution, but IMHO the site would be a lot more attractive if more spacing is used (a trend in web2.0 styles) see for example the rubini.us site, scrolling down is fine on this web2.0 era.
I also tend to like cheerful colors.. some kind of light blue, something like ..
Cheers, and thanks for helping fancy in diverse ways.
|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||dominic wood||9/27/10 9:04 PM|
Yeah, I'm working with a blue colour sheme now, and the content was purely to have something to actually put the colours on.
I'm working away at this, naturally other stuff does take priority nut I'm paying a lot of attention to this :)
|Re: Design||Christopher Bertels||10/12/10 6:11 AM|
just wondering if you had time to work on the design some more :)
We're currently working towards a new release (hopefully coming out
soon) with lots of new features, including a working bytecode compiler
for the Rubinius VM.
It would be really sweet to have a new website when we're going to
release the next version of Fancy to the public. If you haven't had
time to work on it so far, that's fine.
Just let us know so we can plan out things a little better =)
|Re: [fancy-lang] Re: Design||dominic wood||10/12/10 6:44 AM|
Sorry I went a bit quiet on this, been caught up in a whole slew of things.
I have been working on this as much as possible, and I'm free today so I can get much more done!
What's the rough release date for the next version? I'll do my best to get something done by then :)

There's no offical date yet, but I'd say end of october latest

Here's a link to the "smalltalk on jvm" project http://redline.st/ I like the web design, minimalist, and beautiful.
Hope it can also serve for inspiration.

Just been wondering, if you're still working on this or don't have
time / interest anymore?
If not, I'd like to repost this on forrst.com and possibly other
websites since we're very keen on having a new and fresh webdesign for
