It is indeed a good outcome to have competing ideas.

[Poll] Choosing better UI for

I've created new Sugar Labs website project and published it at . It is based on Jekyll, Bootstrap, CSS, some plugins and JS. Its current design has been invented by my friend Piotr Antosz (Boquete).

Other Sugar community member has created other UI for website which is available at . It is based on my orginal solution with changes to text, used libraries and page layout.

As we do not want on two separate projects, where authors' UI ideas are totally different, we would like to know which one should be continued and which abandoned. That's why we would like to ask you - Sugar community members - for opinion which UI you like more and which one you want to see in release page. As I try to be neutral I won't write here about advantages and disadvantages of both projects.

Your opinion is really appericated!

interesting article on evaluation

Amidst all the discussion about the future of Sugar, it would be good
to keep in mind what more we can do in terms of analyitics and
evaluation. We have a pretty decent mechanism (wrtiten by Martin) for
data gathering about what kids do; the portfolio for assessing what
they have done; and a few rubrics for tying together some of these
data.  The ideas expressed in [1] suggest we could do more.

Re: Upgrading XOs

I have finished categorizing the Sugar activities on BERNIE. The Backup 
and Backup4G are the activities installed on the standard builds. The 
Standard activities that I believe work without restriction. The Spanish 
category is evident. The Web activity are activities that require 
web-service (not yet installed on the XOs). The Restricted category 
includes activities that require special external capabilities such as a 
Butia robot, access to the internet, a midi controller and so on. The 
Broken category are activities which do not install and launch cleanly 
on an XO-1 for various reasons (all activities have correct files so 'broken' refers to some other issue). The 
Untested category include activities which depend on multiple users as 
well as the Spirituality for Kids activities which have not been tested).

The activities list can be see in the Class Page by clicking on the 
Guide button on the Sugar Activities page at

Hello, I have a little addition to this website, But i am not a web designer but the "Activity Section" is suppose to change. When i mean change, If a user is wanting to download an activity, he/she will be scrolling down to actually find what he or she want and that's no a good idea. What if the activity section have a drop down menu pattern or some like this from this Project mudra site  it will be faster. Also the head or menu should  have a drop down pattern. The color is kinda brights for the eyes. Since we will be porting to this new site what if every thing should be in drop down pattern just like the site. Remember i am only suggesting.

Best Regards
Samson Goddy

Sugar on a Stick, USB-HowTo as an Activity, in Home view.

Hi all,

I have been making a presentation with the instructions and screen shots to make Sugar on a Stick.

I have written up my progress so far on [1] and placed three screen shots here [2] [3] [4].

A previous working title has been Sugar Stick Builder.

I cannot find a one or two word title that fits the job.

I think that my biggest blocker to opening my first github repository and getting this uploaded, is fixing a name.

Can anyone help me to decide the title for this Activity, please?

With thanks in advance.

Process of updating translations for sugar and sugar-toolkit-gtk3

Hello Everyone,

Following with our roadmap [1], next week on March 6, I will release sugar 0.104.1 with improved translations from sugar [2] and sugar-toolkit-gtk3 [3]. So far, I have pushed translations for Dutch and Polish which are 100% complete. There are other languages ie., Hindi, which are very close to completion.

Would be great if we could complete as many languages as possible before March 6 to do QA on these translations before the release.

Many thanks to those who contributed with these translations so far!

Picon new website - looking for opinions/ideas!


last week I was working with Walter Bender on new SugarLabs website, as current one is too old and doesn't have attractive UI. Results of our work is here:

New website is based on Bootstrap, with some plugins and self-written jQuery code. It uses Jekyll, so it doesn't need PHP anymore. 

We would like to ask you for opinions about this new website, for ideas what we can change/improve/add/fix. 

All suggestions are very welcome!
