alex-l added a comment to T7913: Make it really obvious where newly-installed apps can be found.

What about a blue dot on the launcher icon and a new tab in the launcher named "newly installed"? The dot will disappear when the user will open the newly installed tab.

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 the search could be the FAB. I should do a complete mockup, because this one is just to stress the navigation.

@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.

alex-l added a comment to M94: Kamoso + Kirigami.

@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.
