simple_static_page_v1.png (131.3 KB) - added by garycmartin 12 years ago.
Here's a quick first pass at a simple static page, please fire off some feedback - I'm not too keen on how the Google treatment clashes with SL, but it is a useful feature to have on a home page.
simple_static_page_v2.png (76.3 KB) - added by garycmartin 12 years ago.
v2, dropped the Google logo, added 'bugs' at Simon's request
simple_static_page_v3.png (64.7 KB) - added by garycmartin 12 years ago.
v2, SL logo at ~75%, made google inputs match SL width, tweaks to margin.
simple_static_page_v4.png (71.8 KB) - added by garycmartin 12 years ago.
v4, dropped blog and replaced with school (links to http://schoolserver/), colour theme changes randomly from the 12 available, re-compressed pngs, tweak to left/right margin.
sugar-labs-static-v4.zip (101.0 KB) - added by garycmartin 12 years ago.
Here's a zip of the v4 code so Simon has a heads up on what's in it. Code has been validated.

There's some benefit to the Browse activity's home page continuing to be a local file ('/usr/share/library-common/index.html' in webactivity.py), so users see something even without an internet connection.

If Sugar Labs resuscitated the olpc-library-common package, users would get a home page on their PC built from an easily modified and localized template, and it would also automatically update as they download new "collections" to their "Library" (see bug #574).

I think SL intend to move away from the OLPC library model, but /usr/share/library-common is working code that does two useful things.

I agree that having a default page that won't resolve if you are not connected to the net is a bad idea... Until we settle on the "library" strategy, why not a simple page that contains links to:

www.sl.o
wiki.sl.o
a.sl.o
and a Google search

Is ok with me? Can someone makes a nice page with the Sugar Labs logo?

comment:4 Changed 12 years ago by CarolineM

Sounds smart to me

comment:5 Changed 12 years ago by garycmartin

A clean, simple local static page is a good plan. Did someone pick up this task yet? Reassign to me if it's still vacant.

go Gary go! I made a request in the email thread about it - but nobody has picked it up so far AFAIK.

Thanks

This would be great to have for the conference on Friday April 10th.
When could we get this into a build? Should I hold off burning the sticks?

Hey Simon, just posted a zip of the v4 code so you have access, hoping this is now it for this round, but your call on release :-)

comment:10 Changed 12 years ago by erikos

Hi Gary, Thanks! Yes we will get it into this release definitely. It is working fine in Browse here. I am a bit uncertain about the schoolserver link - as this will not work in most of our cases. But I guess I should raise that concern on the email thread.
