Subject: New App to Create and "Remix" Icon Sets
To: gnome-love at gnome.org
I'd like to suggest a new app for gnome. The app would be able to open and
edit icon sets (but not the icons themselves), add/change individual icons
in a given set, and "remix" between different sets.
It was partially inspired by Candy Bar <http://www.panic.com/candybar/> for
OS X and my own desire for a Linux equivalent. The design would probably be
somewhat similar. (Screenshot
The program would probably mostly be used by icon designers, but I'm sure
that plenty of eyecandy freaks (like myself :-D ) could also find plenty of
use for it.
I discussed the idea in #gnome-love on Friday (unfortunatly, it was the
morning U.S. time when almost no one was around) and gavintlgold (he's new
around here, but some of you may know him from compiz fusion) volunteered to
help out with the coding.
I haven't worked out all of the details yet, but it'll probably be written
in python in order to allow maximum participation from fellow ghop students.
I was thinking of writting it in Vala or objc, but that probably wouldn't do
as well :( (Comments are welcome, of course.) I haven't given the name any
thought yet, but, again, suggestions would be appreciated.
I'm not sure what the usual process is for creating a new app and getting it
ready for inclusion in gnome. Assuming that this idea is approved, I'll go
ahead and I write some base code. I was thinking of adding a few ghop tasks
once I got the minimum core finished.
If someone could forward this to the tango list (I couldn't find the list
myself) that would be awesome.
I'm sorry if the explanation is somewhat vague. Its my birthday today and
I'm taking the rest of the night off, but I'll explain/clearify tomorrow.
