Re: [orion-dev] LotD: editor style shots.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the feedback about the navigation. I glanced at a screen-shot of Koding's navigation and made some guesses as to why you think it looks less crude. I made a bug to reflect on your observation. If you have a few minutes, maybe you can critique or add to it.

Having a navigation that can be skinned is I'm sure one of the desires for the user interface. The css can be tweaked right now, it isn't too bad. I wonder if the best approach would be again to be able to provide a way of linking to an external style sheet as a setting in a publicly hosted Orion. I'd like to discuss that with some members of the team. The style sheets of a self hosted Orion can just be edited, but maybe we need to allow for externally hosted css files to be read and become the source of style for this and for a set of Orion elements ( as settings ).

Short answer, as I understand it is that 'convenient' skinning of navigation and other parts of the UI ultimately is a goal.

Hi Anton,

Thanks for the mockups.  I was aware that colours can be modified - although I haven't tinkered with much of that myself (offering themes would probably be how I'd try that out).  

Although the editor now looks different, things like the navigator still look (err, how do I phrase this nicely...), a bit crude .  Not in terms of colours, more in terms of the boxes/arrows/icons - not sure if their just too big for my tastes, or there is too much clutter, or what it is. I just don't find the orion navigator layout as appealing as something like the one in the koding editor.  Do you know if there are plans to allowing theming to that extreme?  If I change the CSS do I have the level of control to change that, or would I need to do real programming?

cheers,
Andy
