Skins bundled in CairoRelease:

Skins proposed to bundle:

I would like to bundle a few skins. Which ones should it be?

Also, to make it easy to browse through available skins we need a simple TWikiSkinBrowser.

Since it is late in the game we should ship only very few skins. One or two should be fine; administrators can add additional ones at time of deployment.

although i don't personally use it, TWiki.Koala skin seems to me to be the most popular skin. that's probably quite a task though. ColasNahaboo is very busy atm; perhaps the community of KoalaSkin users can pitch in and make this skin happen for Cairo?

With TWikiBetaRelease2004x05x07, now I'm using AmbarSkin, which is good for :

  1. Clear and clean front-end with by-web color and SavemultiCgiScript
  2. Left Web Menu easy to customize by admin or even by users
  3. RenderListPlugin with nice icons

I enclose below two snapshots (Ambar Skin Example and Void Skin Example to compare with it).

More skins are better then less smile

Criteria for Skins to be bundled with Cairo:

  • Skin topic modified to layout of latest template, with 600x130 pixel screenshot and fullscreen image. (See SkinPackageHowTo and TWikiSkinBrowser)
  • Identifiable global/web preference variable names, e.g. VOIDSKINSITEBAR instead of WEBSIDEBAR. This is to avoid confusion what is / is not part of TWiki core; avoids name clash; and makes upgrades easier
  • Identifiable names for additional topic names, if any. Same reasons like above
  • Don't forget to add the BROADCASTMESSAGE variable, see BroadcastMessageHandling (not required but nice to have)
  • Skins works with latest Alpha (Beta coming up)
  • Ready by 31 Jul 2004
