Hi all,

We'll do our 8th weekly live chat on January 20th at 7:30-8:30pm GMT (1:30pm-2:30pm CST).

Our weekly live chat is a chat about Composr Deploying, Designing and Developing, open to any one who wants to attend. It's a great way to meet other Composr users, influence development, and get some free support from the busy developers. If you don't get a decent reply on something on the forum or IRC, the live chat is the best place to ask. You don't need to be there for the full chat, but it's best to get there near the start in case we don't go the full time length for whatever reason.

If you aren't confident speaking in English you're still welcome to attend and can use the text chat feature to ask questions and make comments.

Agenda:
  • What you're working on: discuss your site, and what you're working on – and solicit suggestions from the group
  • Community questions: the best way to corner me and get some free step-by-step support or even some coding (if we can cover it within the allotted time of course); please try to bring a couple of questions to the chat
    • Write your questions in this topic
    • … or just ask them live (either by voice, or via the stream's text chat window)
    • Other topics we may discuss:
      • We may discuss possible format changes, e.g. a shorter community chat, followed by a collaborative programming session, or a collaborative UX review session - or just go to regular programming streams and rarer community chats that are given more heavy promotion
      • We may discuss Unity 3D game integration (https://compo.sr/forum…e-engine-intergration.htm)
      • New compo.sr website design

As always, the link is Jitsi Meet. We'll also post a copy of the stream soon after it's concluded for those cannot attend.

See you there :).

If you can't attend but would like to in the future, please reply with the dates/times you could make, so we can try and schedule something that works for you in the future.

We will be discussing our new site design, which is a work-in-progress…


You can also reply here with thoughts if you like :).

Unfortunately we had bandwidth issues, or possibly a problem on Jitsi, and Google Hangout required a Google account – so we have deferred until next week.

The design is less "box-like". It's nice. Do youplan on implementing this (kind of design) in v11?
 Ignore my lack of knowledge if this had previously been stated, somewhere.

Glad you like it :).

To some degree, yes - we are planning for flat design in v11.
However, we're not at a point where it's been given much thought. Currently we've planned up to adding lots of theme options to disable gradients etc, and add the new SVG icons. I suspect after this is implemented, we'll then look at what core style changes we want to make.

The new design looks nice. Realy nice!
Compo.sr looks nice but the version we use now, can be better. A little bit more 2018 if you know what i mean :)

Keep up this wonderful job devs!

The next chat is Saturday (i.e. tomorrow, depending on your timezone), at 7:30PM UK time.

I just updated the topic to reflect that. Sorry for being so slow on that, flu has hit my hard and I've been struggling to stay on top of things.

Here is the presentation planning the site redesign.

compo.sr.pdf


It is not entirely consistent with the design work so far. Once done I will probably go through and see if the design needs further work, or if we'll do things a bit differently from this presentation.

Hi Steve,

I'm still working on editing the video. I didn't make it a priority this week because it will still be a while before the next chat. It should be up within the next week or so.
