I like the new ruby-doc.org!


#1

Hadn’t seen this mentioned here, so just wanted to say that I feel
the new front page of ruby-doc.org is significantly more attractive.
Nice work!

P.S. Minor, minor, minor complaint (feel free to ignore): For some
reason my reflexes believe core should be on the left and the
standard library on the right. I keep clicking the wrong one… :slight_smile:

I also think it would make more sense to newbies. But as James says,
it’s a minor issue.

Absolutely! I was pleasantly surprised to find the new look when I paid
ruby-doc a visit today. When did this happen?

Funny thing about the minor complaint: I had the same reaction. I’m
always horrified by reminders of what a creature of habit I’ve become.

I did the exact same thing. I clicked on standard library when I
really wanted core api.

This was my first thought also. If it had always been that way I might
not have noticed but it is now the opposite of the previous layout.

Thanks for making this site available.

Yes… Very cool!

Agreed.

+1, it took some time but the result is really nice, thanks to James
Britt!

very cool, indeed.

Is this site built with RoR? Could not tell from netcraft as it reports:

Apache/1.3.27 Unix Red-Hat/Linux mod_fastcgi/2.4.2 FrontPage/5.0.2.2623
mod_ssl/2.8.12 OpenSSL/0.9.6b DAV/1.0.3 mod_perl/1.26

Sunday.

But habits matter. I hadn’t thought about that, but now that it’s been
mentioned, switching them makes sense. (I rarely go through the main
page for the API docs, so the reversing didn’t trigger any alarms for
me.)

And thanks, all, for the compliments. Real thanks for the look should
go to Dan Ritz of 30 Second Rule, though.

There are a few issues I’m working to correct, but if you find stuff
(broken links, awkward layout, general weirdness) please let me know.

The link to the pickaxe is broken, too.

Hehe, look at the bottom of the page ^^

Yeap, let me add my +1 and congrats for the new layout.
I also tricked myself with the core/standard link placement.
I’ve been meaning to bookmark the direct links, but somehow I always
seem to go through the main page :slight_smile:
George must be happy to see the powered by Nitro sign :slight_smile:

Nope, not RoR. It says on the page (lower right-hand side) that it’s
powered
by Nitro.

Agreed, it looks great!

Thanks to both of you, then :slight_smile: Very nice work.

Not so much nitpicking as whining, but it’d be nice if the boxes around
the various categories remained after zapping the background colour.

Trust me, this always takes longer than you expect. Especially when
it’s something that gets done “when you have free time.”

Sure – Is it just a time-to-deploy issue or is there additional work
that needs to be done for this? (As far as being able for others to
volunteer some time/code)

Zapping? As in using a Firefox thingy to clear colors?

If I edit the CSS (though Firefox) and remove the background color, I
still see the boxes. But not if I do a ‘zap colors’. That seems to
make sense, though.
