Some requests related to new design

Postby mimox » 21 Nov 2010, 20:12

The new design is great, but a few things used to work better in the old version or could otherwise be improved:

* option to always show folders uncollapsed
* option to not show tabs (browser has tabs already)
* don't show labels folder if no labels are set
* could the "theme color" be configurable? :)

Thanks for your comments! :)

1) the collapsed state of categories is actually stored server-side, unless I broke something
2) I'm not sure saving about 20px of vertical space warrants adding an option, tt-rss has a really bad case of too many options already. If you don't need the functionality, ignore it. I actually use it every day and my browser has tabs too. :)
3) good point, fixed in trunk
4) I'm using Dijit (http://www.dojotoolkit.org/widgets) which is themeable through CSS. There are a few themes available but currently there is no way to switch them in tt-rss and old native themes I had are mostly incompatible with the new UI. So this is something that'll need to be fixed at some point. For the time being you can try setting a user stylesheet in tt-rss and tweaking things there.

re 1: oh, right, this works now... didn't seem to work when I noticed (I made a note in order to report more than one thing, I should have re-checked)
re 2: well for netbook displays, losing 20px is kind of a big deal ;)
re 4: didn't know this library, cool stuff

somewhat related to #2: is there a way to turn off the context menu? I used to right-click -> open in new (browser) tab on the netbook. On the desktop, I just middle-click but without a mouse, middle-clicking is kind of hard...

Two more things:

* does it make sense to show the "NEW" icon on every line in "Fresh articles"? those are always "NEW"?
* I can see why you positioned the feed icon on the right side (the left is already quite busy) but is it useful on the right?

great new design, dojo/dijit really works great for tt-rss!

my small request; the ability to disable the twitter-widget which is now under each article (on online.tt-rss.org that is) in the preferences :-)
