Very cool icons! But in the panic one the padlock is too small :-/ what a about a checkmark (✅) on the wall instead?

alex-l added a comment to M132: Plasma Mobile Clock.

Do we want time, stopwatch, alarms and timers to be in the same app? We already have KTimer (h[[ https://phabricator.kde.org/M130 | ere a mockup) ]]. Should we develop the remain apps standalone like KTimer or merge it in this "Clock" app?

Wouldn't tabs and navigation by horizontal swipes better to change location? Same for parameters, maybe with arrows to indicate that you can swipe right/left to view another parameter?

alex-l updated subscribers of M127: Card layout and card content layout for Kirigami and Discover.

alex-l added a comment to M127: Card layout and card content layout for Kirigami and Discover.

having a vertical alignment between the icon and the stars breaks the fact that we only had 1 thing at the left on the vertical views. This adds clutter.

The reason is that the current layout makes cards narrow and long, so I tried a modular layout that can make cards longer or shorter according to page width. It would be better to have this in Kirigami so Discover just have to fill the cards.

alex-l added a comment to T8707: Window borders.

+1 for no-side borders by default. Also, titlebar and bottom border can have custom colors using KWin rules (for example if a distro ships Telegram it can ship in the same package a KWin rule to match colors), so consistency is not a issue there. The real issue is that apps draw widget near the side borders, so we just need to disable them by default. I use this settings since KDE4 and I have no issues with it.

alex-l added a comment to M127: Card layout and card content layout for Kirigami and Discover.

Yes, the app developer could elide text instead of increasing cards height: but I think it would be nice to have automatic different height managed by Kirigami and the app developer that want cards with fixed height takes care of card content in another way, i.e. eliding text.

I'm not sure of what to do. The current icon with 3 dots doesn't give any indication of what is supposed to do.
The risk a user confuse VDs with Activities exists but he should be able to understand the difference trying it.
I'm using the new icon and I like it but this is blocking me from pushing it to master.

@subdiff yours are all good suggestions, I made the mockup really quickly to stress the right navigation pattern :-)
About "more" buttons, I think it would be good to find a solution and make it a guideline.
Same for categories controls: those are just placeholders, I think it would be nice something like elementary OS Software Center.
In general a minumum + maximum sizes would be a good addition to guidelines.

@apol if the problem is having the UI ready to take pictures with one click, it could be started with recent shots + take picture pages both opened. Then if the user clicks on a recent shot the page on right will show it with options, like in the screenshot.
Then if the user wants to take a picture again he just have to click on "+" FAB in recent shots page.
It seems the most sensible approach to me...

alex-l added a comment to M91: Kamoso Mockup - early Kirigamification.

I honestly think that the "hack" of Kirigami guidelines went a bit too far: the global drawer is for global actions, and it was not intended to gather widgets like those.
In general:
Global drawers: global actions
Pages: every kind of items
Context drawer: actions on one or more items.
