Gedit symbol browser plugin

http://www.micahcarrick.com/11-14-2007/gedit-symbol-browser-plugin.html

This looks like it could work quite nicely with our gedit plugin... I haven't tried it yet as I don't have a
linux desktop to hand right now.

Shoebot redesign


I have re-branded and designed a website for Shoebot.

Basically this was my project/dissertation for my graphic design degree. As
my project, I intended to write Shoebot documentation
(tutorials/references/etc.), but the institution insisted that it have more
of a 'graphic design focus'. As such, I have packaged Shoebot with a
customised version of the Geany IDE. I also renamed it "Spryte" and designed
a new logo.

You will notice that the website is not fully functional and lacks any
back-end functionality. Spryte is not intended to be a fork of Shoebot. You
can view the website a proposal of possible ideas for Shoebot. As far as I
know, the website is not linked to from any other website and should not
rank in search engines.

If there is ANY part of it you wish to use, please do so. I intend to get
stuck into the documentation (after a holiday that is ...) now that I have
completed the project. This documentation can be used for Shoebot.

The website url is:
http://hxgraphics.com/spryte/

Thanks
Tristan.

<rising-from-the-dead>

Tristan, your effort looks awesome! I've only briefly had a look at the 
website but stuff looks wonderful.

I'll be commenting more carefully later as i am now pretty swamped with 
professional work -- which is also the reason why i haven't been active 
at all in the mailing list and haven't responded to the most recent 
postings, my honest apologies to everyone (especially Stu, who's been 
posting great insights).

Still i'm very much in the boat, in case there was any doubt regarding 
that.

I'm not sure when i'll be able to sit down and finalise+merge the 0.3 
branch, but my head is buzzing with possibilities that your offshoot of 
Shoebot proposes. Wow, i'm still wow. Thanks for that, Tristan.

LGM this year

While chatting with Francesco today, i got reminded that the LGM this 
year (which will happen in Brussels, ~26-29 May) would be a perfect 
place for us to meet, hack and eventually stage a Shoebot workshop. 
Anyone planning to go?

(i know i'm going ;)

Nodebox and Shoebot

Dear all,

Couple of things:
1. My work commitment is finally about to be over in a couple of weeks 
or so, and afterwards i intend to go back and finish the loose ends of 
Shoebot. Sorry everyone for the hiatus, and i will address all the open 
threads as soon as i'm done (special apologies and requests for patience 
go to Stu and Tristan)

2. I've contacted the Nodebox developers a few days ago about the coming 
Nodebox 2 -- a beta is available at beta.nodebox.net, but only runs on 
Macs. Essentially the new version departs from the script model and goes 
more into a node-based model (think Max/MSP or Pure Data). It will 
apparently be cross-platform.

They've been very nice and polite, and are very interested in creating 
some sort of universal test suite for Nodebox rendering (think ACID 
tests for browsers), especially to ensure that Shoebot and Nodebox can 
play along. Since they're 'freezing' Nodebox 1 in favour of Nodebox 2, i 
think it's also good for them that we support Nodebox 1 syntax as best 
as possible. I also asked them their thoughts about our 
'nodebox-extended' vs. 'nodebox-strict' modes idea.

Now i'm attaching an e-mail from Frederik asking for feedback about what 
people might want to know about the coming Nodebox 2, so that they can 
add it to their FAQ. In case you have something to ask, post it here and 
i'll forward it to them (or send it directly to Frederik, your choice).

Re: Nodebox and Shoebot

Hi,
  This sounds great.  I started a bot to do something like this (attached:screentest.py) when I was messing
with paths in shoebot.  It's probably not structured how we would want a final test to be, but it does have a
couple of tests:

1.  translation and rotations effecting the background in shoebot
2.  differences in line thickness

...some other things I can't remember :)

Try running it in shoebot and nodebox to see the differences, in particular the stuff around the border only
happens in shoebot.

I stopped messing with this as I saw the wisdom of using lib2geom :) ...speaking of which, inkscape 0.47 has
just been released - I haven't checked, but there should probably be a lib2geom to accompany it, so it's
probably worth pursuing this again (plus the devs should be a little less busy now their release is out).

Nodebox2 certainly looks interesting, (more wysiwyg using jython, + they fixed rotation to be clockwise).

lol, don't worry about apologies for me - I've mostly been waiting for inkscape 0.47 to come out (and
lib2geom), 
+ starting lots of projects, as for finishing them.. thats another story... :)
