New web site style

Postby simargl » 11 Oct 2014, 15:22

There is now a new web site in place to substitute old one which have used Arch style
http://alphaos.tuxfamily.org/

New one is based on this nice free template:
http://www.opendesigns.org/design/theme-4/

Thanks to CodingDev http://codingdev.de/ (site seems not accessible ATM)

I've put web site files on github

Looks very nice sim

Is there a new alphaOS version in the works?

I'm making some small fixes for Gtk 3.14 (from Arch testing repo), replaced some deprecated functions, and for now things look in pretty good state. I'll make a new iso, some time after gnome 3.14 moves to Arch stable repo.

possible spelling error?

Modern applications, based exclusively on the latest Gtk+3 toolit


In second heading

Maybe it should be "toolkit"

The new site looks nice. Looking forward to a new iso possibly, with a recent rollback date too :)
Cheers.

I love the new site "look".
But I am still deeply concerned that one day you (simargl) wake up fed up with having to maintain everything in alphaos.
If that day ever comes, I will probably abandon linux because I won't go back to what I did before I found alphaos, using bloated gigabyte distros. And puppy/dsl are simply not cut out for me.
Apart from that, are we (alphaos) going to stick with Gtk or are we moving to Qt as soon as we find a stable web browser that uses Qt?
Cheers

I share that eerie feeling, Maybe sim would be more inclined to stay on if alphaos got more followers?

That's a sad sentiment, Would you go back to windows then?
I probably wouldn't, would try to find some lite linux without systemd
or maybe go BSD

Puppy could probably be altered to my needs

I think it is a matter of size. Isn't Qt a bit large?

Anyway I really like gtkdialog, great for bash script frontends
Cuts down on dependencies of all them other dialogs like
Xdialog, yad and yaf-splash

Maybe something similar exist for Qt?
