I decided to make a script that would hide everyone's reputation so you can navigate Kbin unbiased....
So I 3D modelled two icons (well, illustrations rather) for the communities that I created on kbin: Industrial Design and Jewelry Design. These icons are meant to reimagine kbin’s logo in a way that's relevant to each community....
On the occasion of buying a license for Figma and putting Adobe Xd aside, I thought about creating a kbin system design ((unofficial, for testing figma and plugins).
But the post is not about that. I've been living for a while now and I still don't understand why designers stick to a full color palette. From 100 to 900 for each variant. Practice shows that no development team is able to implement it the way the ui designer dreamed. And this is regardless of the size of the company and the money spent on it. Not to mention pallet modifications.
I can't decide whether it's the designers' lack of knowledge that in ordinary SASS you can generate a practically full palette from one base color, or maybe the attitude that everything must be in line with their vision to the letter.
After all, the average user will not even notice the difference. Anyway, monitors have different settings, brightness, contrast, technology and screen quality and the effect will still differ from the designer's vision.
The episode seems a bit calm, but the ending does not disappoint. Stupid as it should be.
I think that the interface would look clearer, and it would be easier why you're seeing a given article, if the author and magazine were shown right below the title instead of all the way to the bottom. This is what I propose: Untitled.png This is what it looks like now: Screenshot from 2023-06-14 09-57-41.png
Curious if anyone here knows why PHP was chosen for kbin's implementation? I know PHP has come a long way, but there's still a lot of uncertainty / dislike for it out there. @ernest might just really like PHP, which is totally cool, but as someone who would like to contribute, but also as someone who hasn't touched PHP in almost 10 years, I'm genuinely curious!
Is this the place for suggestions? I'm not sure when to go
I'm not sure I understand why "Threads" and "Microblogs" are separate entities in kbin. From my understanding, "Threads" are like Reddit's link/image posts and "Microblogs" are like text posts. Why are these only viewable in separate tabs? It seems like a bad thing to completely separate certain content from the same Magazine and make it unable to view everything at once. Am I misunderstanding something?
Content a little more than usual so a post on microblog will be suitable for its presentation on average....
Man lives not only in the online world, so he is preparing a slight correction for the real world as well. There is less and less water, so every drop counts, it's a shame to drain it just like that into the sewage system. However, you need a rainwater catcher to collect it. Mine will be 100% effective. At least that's the plan. How it really is will turn out after printing the prototype.
Small changes. And by the way, checking if uploading video to kbin in any form is already working. Only now I noticed that font-display works differently on firefox compared to webkit
Graphics/UI and #ux are one side of the project, UX that is combined with functionality and design is a slightly different story. Looking at the project from the beginning I was wondering about the sense of mixing upvotes and likes. Of course, I know that this from the functionality of federated applications, but also in them...
The biggest pain I caused myself, because I chose the standard approach to CSS for this framework. Lack of SASS or other preprocessor hurts a bit. However, I will not give up and will not install any.
The first version of the user account settings layout. View with icons from the Tabler family instead of Font Awesome. Due to availability, license, number of icons and their variants, all existing icons will be replaced with Tabler icons.
By the way, I would like to add that what I "draw" here does not have a 1:1 reference to the work of the author of the site, because these are only my suggestions. It doesn't have to affect #kbin at all. It also doesn't mean that I'm right and everything is logical :) I just decided to help in the development of the project, but slightly from the side. Unfortunately, open source projects tend to live as long as the developer (usually one person) is motivated. And motivations are easy to burn out, especially in this type of projects.
The first approach to "warehouses", channels, rooms. Personally, I don't like the solutions seen on #reddit, but people seem to like them. And yet, the user interface is for people, not for themselves. At least to a large extent.
While reddit's layout isn't fully polished (many subreddit-related modules and pages still use the old layout), I decided to use a drop-down menu that I don't like and redesign it a bit.
Unfortunately, the information funnel is a matter that affects all media, the Internet, press, television, etc. Even if the operator does not block anything, a person is not able to assimilate all information. And what if we add information noise and disinformation to this.
In the case of a narrow topic such as #fediverse, there is also the issue of its low popularity. There are simply no users on the Polish #kbin instance who could at least point out the mistakes made. And since man is constantly learning, or rather should be learning, I decided to move to international waters.
In the Polish instance I was spamming as grumpydev @grumpyDev
