Scalate Web site

Eric Johnson
I've got the beginings of a scalate Web site set up at
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/servicemix/sandbox/website20.

Right now it is mostly just a home page. Is this a generally good direction?
Ideas?

Eric,

Yeah, I like how the major simplification of the first page makes it
looks a lot more appealing.  Nice work on this initial proposal!

Some things I would change:
- only mention the latest 4.3.0 release on the home page in the
download box -- I'd also try and see if we can come up with a little
javascript that offers the correct download link for the current
platform, so people can get their hands on the software as easily as
possible (similar to what e.g.
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/firefox.html does)
- when the new logo is done, we might have to tinker a bit with the
color scheme or add some drop shadow/rounded corners/some other eye
candy/...
- I would move the news section down, to the same level of the twitter
feed but on the left -- afterwards we could add an events or JIRA feed
in the middle as well
- with the news section moved down, we can probably add some extra
spacing in the summary description, making things a bit more readable
-- I suspect we might want to rewrite that description a bit when we
start gearing up for our next releases (considering what we discussed
in the 'future' thread)
- how about giving the drop-down menu's a slightly different color/hue
to make them stand out a bit more from the main navigation menu?
Also, the menu items in those drop-downs would look better if there
was a bit more space between them (I think)

Also, I really like the twiiter feed on the bottom of the page, but we
might want to keep an eye on this thread on the incubator list
(http://old.nabble.com/Twitter-widget-on-Apache-project-website.-ts30053485.html)
because there appear to be a few 'issues' with using the default
widgets on apache.org websites.  We can always make up our own
equivalent (most JavaScript toolkits have some kind of support for RSS
anyway) or look at Wookie for this.

Thanks for all your hard work on this,

Gert Vanthienen

The site now has a bunch of content and style. I've also got the front page
Twitter feed working.

Is the look and feel OK?
What about the navigation and organization?

When the new logo is ready it can be easily added.

Lukasz your intern can also play with it to spruce it up.

I've attached a simple patch for index.page that detects whether to opt for the tar.gz or zip download based on the navigator.appVersion value in the browser.

Happy to lend a hand with any javascript required.

Well I thought I attached a patch. Do attachments get stripped on this mailing list?

Scott Christopher,

Yeah, I have been able to receive the attachment just fine and Lars
will include the patch into some other work he's currently doing on
the website project.  Thanks for helping us out with these bits -- we
really want the new website to shine, so all the help we get is
welcome!

I did some tinkering on the new website. For the logo I put in this is just for getting an idea so far.
As soon as our new logo is finished the top bar should be reworked from scratch.

I smoothed out the logo placement by removing the space between the image

Re: Scalate Web site

I've got a fairly complete version of the ServiceMix site working in the
sandbox at https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/servicemix/sandbox/website20.

Not all of the pages from the wiki are there, but enough to get a general
sense of things.

What do you all think of the visual design, navigation, etc?

I added some color to the drop down menus and a shadow to the boxes.

Should I continue down this path?

Re: Scalate Web site

Lars Heinemann-3
Hi Eric,

the dropshadows are looking quite nice.
Loving the boxes on the right side a lot.
For the header I would recommend using the latest approach of splatch design proposal
( see http://img259.imageshack.us/img259/1718/servicemix46.jpg )

Can we try to get a unified version of both approaches?

Best regards,
Lars

Re: Scalate Web site

I can get the header updated to match the example. I'd just need the
images used to create the logo.

The clip art from the boxes are nice as well. I'd like to add that as well.

Or Lukasz's intern could do the update. Either way works.

Cheers,
Eric

Re: Scalate Web site

Eric Johnson
I've got some of Lukaz's stuff incorporated into the scalate SMX web
site in the sandbox at
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/servicemix/sandbox/website20. I still
need to pretty up the search box. I wasn't keen on the left side
image, so I left it off. However, I can add it back in if the
community likes it.

cheers

Re: Scalate Web site

Chris Custine
Hi All,
The project web site redesign looks like it hasn't gotten any
attention recently and I have been doing some web development anyway,
so I thought I would take a shot at something similar to what the
community has already agreed on.  The link below is a screen shot of a
scalate generated landing page (I used Eric's sandbox work as a
starting point).

http://www.flickr.com/photos/ccustine/5390898666/sizes/l/

The landing page is a bit rich in content and graphics but I liked the
idea of a featured content section (with the rotating content common
in commercial sites) and the getting started boxes carried over from
the previous concepts.  The actual content pages (docs, tutorials,
etc) will be slimmed down a bit more than this one and will have a
left side navigation menu specific to the section you are in
(Documentation, Tutorials, Project Info, etc) but will carry the same
theme.  I'll work on those and post some screenshots if everyone likes
this direction.

WDYT?

Chris

In reply to this post by Chris Custine
Awesome Chris.

It looks very fine and professional.

As discussed before, we should work on website and doc before releasing
ServiceMix 4.3.0 and 3.3.3.

I will work on doc/scalate tomorrow (it's in my TODO :)).

Thanks again Chris

JB

Absolutely.  I will see how much work it will take to give a similar
style to the docs.  I have wanted to do that for the last week but I
had not gotten to it yet.  I'll see if I can get anything accomplished
tonight.
