A sample screenshot:
I'm fine with #Lagrange auto-deciding the colorscheme for a site, but not that it decides the favicon for you.
@binyamin Before I ask any other questions:
Why exactly are you hiding the contents of "Help it Launch" behind a summary?😂
@tobtobxx That's fair. I'm trying to think of ways to gain brownie points in that area, since gemini is all about minimal. Maybe measuring and displaying good performance stats?
@binyamin Providing a built package to download? Building it with npm really demonstrates how heavy it is.
@binyamin Well, there are probably more important areas to work on for now, but definitely think about it whenever you're ready to get steady users.
@tobtobxx Lol nothing scary. The designer in me couldn't bare to leave those bullet points in the open. It just didn't look perfect.
@tobtobxx oh, an emoji. Hmm, that's a bit trivial. I wonder what other changes have been made to the spec lately.
@oppen But as I mentioned in this thread, it seems to be controversial.
However GUS and Houston seem to be down, so I am having trouble finding the RFC, as well as some proof of controversy...
... I still have a search engine planned...
@tobtobxx yeah, I can imagine it got a mixed reaction. I don't think I'll implement it on Ariane, it seems a bit superfluous.
@oppen My opinion is: Don't use it as site icon, but as favicon (favourites icon). Right now you don't display any site-specific icon in your UI.
Because of the controversy I wouldn't display them while browsing. But when you bookmark a page, why not fetch it and attach it to the bookmark?
@tobtobxx yes, and actually thinking about it they would help give a visual helper with how I'm implementing tabs...
@bacardi55 my initial reaction was to dismiss it, but see other reply, emoji could help with tabs on mobile and there's no harm using them in bookmarks either.
@oppen If you want my opinion, I don't think it's worth it, because soon enough you'll have tab with multiple times the same emoji and won't make sens.
If you are interested (but you shoudln't ^^, my full opinion is there:
Please just keep it optional if you add it though :)
@bacardi55 it's an extra network round trip for a single character, it does seem a little bizarre, may have been better in the success meta after the mime if anywhere. I'll have a read of your capsule shortly.
