new DSL sublets

Added by murth murth almost 11 years ago

Hi, I posted this as a comment on the news page but I'll post it again here.
I'm overseas and dont really have access to IRC atm:

"Many of the new sublets require icons that aren't present anywhere I can find, least of all where they're supposed to be.
Will this somehow be resolved/added to sur?
Or are we meant to create ourselves? (assuming we want the icons)"
Currently without the icon files it actually takes a bit of effort to get the stock sublets working at all.

Hi, yep we are working on this, planned is to add a compressed format that contains additional files like icons too.

My sublets in sur use the icons from sm4tik, you can find them here: http://dzen.geekmode.org/dwiki/doku.php?id=dzen:icon-packs

Excellent. Thanks for that. I have seen those icon packs before, I just didn't think about them.
They work perfectly.

Just one more slightly related question.
I have a white vertical | separating my sublets but i cannot find anywhere to adjust the colour or background colour of these separators. It recently appeared white when it was not before.

RE: new DSL sublets - Added by Christoph Kappel almost 11 years ago

The color of the separator is the foreground color of the panel, hence it's :fg_panel. Maybe this should be another single color option?

RE: new DSL sublets - Added by murth murth almost 11 years ago

Oh you're right. I didn't see that as I assumed fg_panel was something else.
I'm not sure about making it another option, but in a default setup from what I can tell it only affects separator colour, because I don't see that white/grey anywhere else in subtle.

If it's only the separator and stipple(??) affected by fg_panel then maybe they could be separated out and named more clearly, especially as stipple is off by default.
But it doesn't matter much as long as people understand. We could just add another line of comment to subtle.rb explaining.

RE: new DSL sublets - Added by Christoph Kappel almost 11 years ago

Right, you got a point there. The panel foreground is more a relic from a prior version, the only thing this influences is the separator and the stipple as you said. I just thought it would be more contiguous when there is a foreground for the panel as well. Guess the comment will do, but still a problem that this name of the color is a bit misleading.
