Looks good, let's wait for ngraham so he accepts as vdg

Nice! Sorry for not reviewing some tasks btw, for some reason I didn't see it on my emails

Extra mockups showcasing different layouts with the breadcrumbs inside view
What do you think, @KonqiDragon?
Fri, Feb 14
Okay, I'm almost done with the mockups. Currently, it looks like this:
Sun, Feb 9
Thanks, and sorry for wasting your time :x
you can close this task if you want, after talking a bit over T10470 it's better to use headers instead of footers
I have no problem changing the footers back to headers, if you want I can make another version with these and go with them instead
Fri, Feb 7
I think that it should use a footer to be consistent with the other ones
Thu, Feb 6
I think 1.4 looks too small
Looks significantly better in my opinion
Reply from the VDG group about why it's changed to a footer:

I love how it looks :D
The only thing I would change is the progress bar padding by either extending the bar to the left border to the album art or to the ~11px border from before

There's something off with the 1.0 scaling discover screenshots, the search bar is squashed and there seems to be extra vertical padding in the heading text
Looks much better imo, even the text seems to be vertically centered

These get reused in plasma mobile too (as far as I know) so we have to be extra careful with changes like these, especially size and click/tap targets. Also don't know about hiding stuff behind another click w10-style.

Might be better to be aligned to the left since it looks similar now to the battery percentage, but aside from that it's great! Also, sorry for replying late :P

Nice, looks great! About the stream name, it doesn't look like it's useful most of the time so it might be better to remove it
Jan 22 2020
I'd say it's fine that way
Jan 18 2020
About the suppresion message, I feel like it'd be better if it was out of the bottom "toolbar".but I'll check what the rest of the vdg thinks in the chat later today. And about the icon, afaik there isn't any brightness icon for that size

dolphin with breadcrumbs inside view
If it isn't possible that's okay (it looks really nice right now, great job btw :D), although it'd be nice to make it consistent with the kirigami style divider
Dec 29 2019
Looking at the screenshots, UI wise it's looking good already, only that the checkbox seems too big (should be the same size as the radio button, 16px) and there's a 5px sized padding after the divider that cuts off part of the Internal Microphone button and volume slider earlier than it's supposed to
The only changes would be the "[ ] Raise maximum volume" checkmark at the bottom and the different tab and header style

What do you think about these changes?
- Removing the dividers between the accounts
That's why the SimpleMenu design mockups doesn't have any dividers and the Kaidan one from T12420 didn't have dividers either
It actually has a bg like in telegram but it doesn't seem to be customizable. Also, for some reason Kaidan's android builds have way more features than the KDE Neon (dev) version
Readded files tab as grid and apps tab as list, and tweaked the search padding
Dec 26 2019
Here's a couple of kaidan mockups from your second comment, @alexde
The gear idea is quite interesting. By the way, have you seen T11227? Seems like a similar task

That makes sense
- I'm not sure what the status of the discussion is on what should be shown as icons and what as lists. My current plan is to default everything in "Apps" to icons except "All Applications" as list, default everything in "Files" to list, and have a context menu action to switch in every view that just remembers the choice. Search results are a list, too.
Nice, you can add the apps' descriptions and align them like this so it doesn't have unused space:
- I kind of still like the pagination that the original Simple Menu does. I'm considering having lists be vertically scrollable, but use the pages for the icon views.
Hmm, I don't know if it should be different for both the vertical list and the icon grid
- It's quite tricky to sort out what should be hover-activated and what should be click-activated in this UI design. I'm thinking the Apps and Files tabs need to be click-activated, hover there would be incredibly annoying.
A load/save color pallete menu
Dec 22 2019
Here's a couple of alternate color pickers in case it can be used somewhere else
yes, it has the same clickable area (30 px)
smaller version (maybe when you scroll down)
Dec 21 2019
The current design from the app or the mockup from the description?
The artist category looks good but maybe make a bit thinner the banner:(85px tall)
Maybe something closer to the current design like this: (ignore the different progress bar and volume slider)
Thanks! This one works perfectly
Inkscape and figma
hmm, the svg seems to be just a png inserted with a bg
Dec 20 2019
The only thing I would change to the mockup is the top toolbar, it looks a bit empty. Maybe you could do it like Kaku (electron based youtube player that happens to have a similar naming scheme to KDE apps), where the settings and search buttons are on the sidebar.

Also, when the search bar is focused and the user has searched for something that has many options, pressing the left/right keys should change the category.
For example, in the lower right corner of every mockup there are multiple categories displayed (Applications/Pictures/Documents) so pressing right would directly select accesories-character-map.svg because it's the first option in the Pictures category.
Dec 11 2019
Honestly, I'm against using categories on the right too, it just feels wrong tbh.
So something like this?
Dec 10 2019
It used to be like that in the other task and was swapped around to avoid accidental clicks but if no one complains I'll change it
Dec 9 2019
Seems like the best way to do it, yeah. I will add a Recents category for files and change the image from the task. I only have one question, should the size change when the tabs are switched?
which would be easier to implement but, look at that unused space, oof.
Should I change the task image to this one then?
Dec 8 2019
+1 to tabs having a minimum width size
I kind of like that tab location but it probably shouldn't extend to the sidebar too.
Dec 7 2019
Dec 6 2019
Maybe A - Z with a vertical list could look like this, the only problem is where to put the favorites apps and files. Maybe at the top of the apps list could work?
Dec 4 2019
I though that would just affect every app's titlebar without actually checking if the app has a toolbar, etc etc and just add/remove the divider everywhere and be done with it. However, if the app can actually send a hint to Kwin to make it hide or show the divider depending if it has a toolbar or not (or maybe through a window / app rule), then it's great
But that style of line / divider was going to be after the toolbars too, like kirigami apps, so removing it just would make that inconsistent later on. The divider needs to be inside the application itself to make this possible, instead of in the titlebar.
Dec 3 2019
Yeah, the breadcrumbs shouldn't be squashed to fit, nor the icons.
Maybe making the current breadcrumbs part in dolphin be a regular toolbar part that you can add, remove or move to other toolbars might be another option, while also keeping good defaults. Should we talk about this here or T11663?
Hmm, yeah, I see what you mean... Maybe fixing the same size to both and not centering it to the view itself but to the toolbar might work when there are many icons. Does anyone know any other solution to this?
Like the bottom left mockup
The 4th one is just
Yeah, you might like the ones with the light blue bg, it's the one that most people from the VDG chat like
Dec 2 2019
quite probably, for example, KvGnome does that
