The Perl ecosystem toolbar: Now it's your turn.
A couple weeks back, I asked the question "Where is the big 'Explore Perl' button?" and followed up last week with a short demo of the kind of thing I was thinking about. Some folks liked it: so today it's one step closer to "reality." And now it's your turn to take it to the next level.
Last night, I managed steal a couple of hours to get the initial version tested in a few different browsers (screenshots here) and checked the work into github over here. There's also a live demo of it online here.
So, what are the next steps? Well, that's where you come in. Specifically, to push this forward, I could use some help with:
- More browser testing (Opera, Linux browsers other than FF, etc.)
- Determining what sites to link to for each of the sub-menu items (currently unlinked)
- And, finally, converting this into something that folks managing Perl projects can quickly and easily include on their site.
On this last one, I guess that could be any or all of the following:
- A simple .html file with absolute paths to the necessary images
- A merged HTML file that includes the CSS and background images embedded using the "data URI scheme"
- Other options...?
