Elementary dark panel teaser

OK, you know very well about DanRabbit and his great project elementaryOS and about the description of his icons, that says, that the icons doesn’t work with dark panels. That’s was the past. You can already find elementary dark monos into that icon suite and now he is working on a dark panel for elementaryOS – something most of you wanted for a long time!

Here what Dans is saying about “I’ve been working on a new set of monos for Dark panels as well as the styling for this sexy new dark panel in eGTK. Figured I should tease you a bit :)”

Introducing you Dash – File Browser Project by DanRabbit

This isn’t a mockup. It’s a GTK# app, that Dan is working on.. very slowly. The view is drawn completely with Cairo.

It’s not the best quality code in the world, but I’m learning”

If you want to check out the code, pop open a terminal and type “bzr branch lp:~elementaryart/+junk/Dash”

—————————————————————————————————

Okay, so I haven’t made many visible changes, but here goes. The blue and green squares have been replaced by file and folder icons loaded from your theme. At the moment this is still boolean, more specifically, it won’t show different icons for different files types. Under the hood, I’ve been code cleaning. There’s now a nice method for drawing icons onto the grid, not a bunch of duplicate and sloppy code.

So, next couple things to do:
1. Center labels on icons.
2. Get icons based on file type.
3. Add a toggle to view hidden items.

Big Bugs:
1. The cairo view isn’t scrollable.
2. files with really long names don’t get elipsized.

So I recommend you to keep an eye on that app, and everyone who can help with C# is invited to.
