I spent some time to think about Streber's default style and decided to invest some time into polishing the interface for v0.1.

Major changesπ

  1. Blocks can no longer be collapsed/expanded. Watching users convinced me, that this features causes more problems, then it contributes.
  2. "Comment/Update" will become two separated blocks, whereas the "Update"-block becomes ajax-driven.
  3. The rest of the design is driven by the desire to get rid of background-images and gradients. This will tremendeously improve the rendering-speed on mobile devices like the iPhone.

Rethinking layout.


luchyx:I like

the delimited areas of information, such
BUG, STATUS and Attachments.

I suggest icons for Edit, Move, Delete, Observe links so you have only 2 levels of tabs.
maybe famfam icons.

I personally don't like icons. I believe that in most professional environments they do more harm than benefit. But this is just personal taste...

This is what i mean with icons for the common tasks.


guest:Icons and fly-by help

7 years ago -

As long as each icon has its fly-by help (tooltip, title) they are acceptable. But actually I must agree with Pixtur that in this particular case text is preferrable over icons. Easier to read and find what you want. But as mentioned already - a matter of taste.

The mockup of the project overview looks very nice and clean. And I like, that there is a section for items with required feedback.
