I am planning on making a nice gh-page to replace the current
standard-issue one: http://erkin.github.com/ponysay/

I am planning adding a pony generated by the command
( echo -en '\e[1;34m' ; figlet 'Ponysay' ; echo ; echo -en 'Today your terminal, tomorrow to world!'; echo -en '\e[0m' ) | ./ponysay -W300 -b unicode -f PONY

I'm not sure on which pony to use, so I'm taking suggestions before doing it, the ones I think are good are the following, but feel free to suggest other ponies:

changelingqueen
cheerilee80
chrysalis
derpy
discord
fillycadance
fluttershyshy
oinkoinkoink
pinkie
pinkiecannonfront
pinkiecannonhappy
pinkiechicken
pinkiehugsfluttershy
pinkiepartycannon
rainbowsalute
spikemustache
suedance
trixie

and trixiestage I like this one but not sure if can fit (or surpas) the terminal
other can by discordpuppetmaster

and yes the gh-page is soo outdated

@maandree

trixiestage is awesome but it is far too big, it could only fit on an otherwise empty title page,
and I do not think that is what we want.

A requirement for the pony is that it should look good in one of the upper corner, but may fill
one of the side edges. So it can be high, but not too wide and the pony should be in full body.

I think celestia, nightmare and discordpuppetmaster are too wide.

and cadence, celestiasmall ...
ponysay -f twilightzero "ponies, ponies everywhere" ok no look creppy (but is an idea)

@maandree
Collaborator

celestiasmall may be too wide also.

ponysay -f twilightzero "ponies, ponies everywhere" should really be use somewhere.
or twilightcrazyfromball if on the right side of the page.

Use a good looking balloon also! Like the unicode one! :)

'bonbonlyra' I added this today, what you think about this one???
fit a 80x24 terminal

@maandree
Collaborator

Awesome, but it feels like a picture that should be at the bottom left corner.
But I think I'll use that one if it works. (But I have not checked all the other new ponies yet.)

@maandree
Collaborator

Taking another look, I think bonbonlyra will fit nicely if I put a menu under that picture.

I finally made a prototype.

Suggest on how to make 20 % cooler?

So far I only know it to work on chromium and opera, and almost in firefox (iframe site updates does not work.)
So some help one getting that working would be appreciated. When it works properly on all browsers and use
100 % correct HTML and CSS it think it is fit to replace the current gh-page.

@etu

The install instructions are wrong :)

@maandree
Collaborator

What? Are you sure?

@etu
Collaborator

Yes, cowsay is depricated ;)

@maandree
Collaborator

The install instruction are incorrect in the gh-pages branch, not the gh-pages-next branch.

@maandree
Collaborator

The prototype is almost 100 % valid HTML5 (I not know how to do valign CSS, cannot get it to work),
and has now replaced the old page.

the arrows at the finals links not look enough good....look like to pointing to a missing element

and noone resumme about a mini FAQ like: Available for: Linux, PSX and any system with a fullcolored therminal blabla python blabla and Never ported to windOS

http://www.mattyhex.net/CMR/ <- the official unofficial MLP tiitle font clone licenced as public domaind and disponible on AUR, I thik that is a best font fot the tittle

@maandree
Collaborator

the arrous at the finals end not look enough good....look like to pointing to a missing element
Could you provide an image of what you mean?

The font is nice idea.

@jristz
Collaborator

I say aestetically speaking
whrn you goint to point to a place is preferable point to anithing intead of to a blank space

Demostration ->

  • Demostration Demostration -> Some explication

think who look best?? a blank or a non blank?

@maandree
Collaborator

When done it is not suppose to look quite like that, but it may be best to remove the arrows since I pushed it to gh-pages.

The web browsers renders Celestia Redux too differently, and can therefore not be used.

Issue list cleanup closing.

An set an image for the title ussing CelestiaRedux??

@maandree

It is not fixed, but I do not think we need to have this issue open.

The discussion seems to have settled so having this issue open
just clutters the issue list. This issue is not that important, and
the rest of the design will be tested before applied. And if one
design question comes it, a better named issue should be opened.
