Website tested in IE7/IE8/FF3/FF4/Safari/Chrome.
Rails --> Padrino.
Since it is a single page mini-site, using Rails seems to be overkill. Also changed:
MySQL --> SQLite3.
ERb --> Slim.
And with some other minor changes.
Added the updated README.
Added tests. (For now, we need to run `PADRINO_ENV=test padrino rake …
…import` first then `padrino rake test`.)
So Heroku's filesystem is read only, let's have the DB in the repo then.
Added source code link, etc.
Deleted the non-production db files.
Added portraits importing and resizing so that portraits are served l…
…ocally with optimal performance.
Use cache_control helper instead.
Awesome! Excited to see this Padrino version of rubycommiters. Thanks for doing this!
Okay, fixed 100x100px sized portraits work heaps better with the deis…
…ng, so let's do that.
Merge with upstream.
Style it up baby!
Fix SASS deprecation warning.
Make site_name a variable since it's used for more than once.
"Fork me on GitHub".
Updated the copyright text.
Better hyperlink styling.
Missed another style glitch.
Keep the colour of the fork badge consistent with the rest of the sty…
Mostly IE fixes.
More styling fixes.
Added back books.
Updated Padrino/Sinatra pair to 0.9.20/1.1.2.
Fine tuned the footer parallax a bit.
I like it except for the weird jittering shadows behind the people.
This is my favorite.
+1 congrats! Awesome!
Great balance between design and simplicity.
I like this one a lot; it's clear with lots of breathing room, font size is good, works great on low and high resolutions and stresses both team effort and Matz as apex contributor. Not really sure about the parralax effect, the idea is great but implementation a bit jittery, so that might need tweaking. over all very well done!
It looks so good!
My thumbs up goes for this design :)
The thing that concerns me about this design is that it's designed for a lot of data that doesn't actually exist. Consider that a large majority of the contributors don't even have a headshot; how can we expect them to have a 30-50 word bio? Does the ruby committers site really need it's own 30 word intro block?
These are the major elements of this design, however, there is no content to be filled there, and it without it the design is anemic and stark.
+1! I really the design and the lightweight nature of it. Thanks Fred!
Thanks for the great feedback everyone! :-)
Indeed the parallax effect is a bit jittery, I hadn't had too much time tweaking it, but I will, or otherwise I'd just remove the effect entirely if it cannot be tweaked to a satisfactory outcome.
@nicinabox: I consulted with Aaron Patterson during the early drafting stage and he said he would get the bios sorted. Besides, I am sure a great community like Ruby's, we wouldn't have any trouble coming up with a few sentences for each committer. The reason behind having bio, is to make the minisite more useful. I know when I read the rails core page, I find the little blurb for each core member a delight to read. :)
