Should I understand by that you don't like my web design? Spoiler: I don't mind.
Here is the rationale:
I wanted a serif-font because most if not all schemes are related to academia,
I think that rejecting the roots of Scheme is bad karma. It is very bold to pick
a serif font for a web view. It seems to me increasing the font-size and line-height
It should remind the perfect curves of latex font but readable on screen.
For the background and visual artifacts, I wanted something in the spirit
By the way, I created a thread about the topic in /r/scheme.
I settled a colourful strong abstract dark background, but not a video. A black background
because every website around the web (but not caniuse.com
) use white, white-ish
background. I thought that being original would help convey the idea that Scheme
requires attention. The colourful abstract and strong part, was mainly to balance
with the lack of visual in the actual page. Without a video, it gives a sense of dynamism.
Here is another design I made for another (scheme) software, that is missing
the dynamic nature and also sound much more serious and too much
Logo: I like biwascheme logo and also chibi-scheme logo.
My favourite scheme implementation website is by far the website of gerbil
it contradicts all the above points.
I am not saying, schemedoc api browser should use my style, I just want get started
the conversation about the cosmetics aspects, the visuals and possibly ui/ux elements
that we want to have in the application.
