About and all that...
DISCLAIMER: This site is not backwards compatible. The most I've pushed for on that front is the html5shiv. I spend a lot of my time at work ensuring browser compatibility and thought I'd build my own site in a relaxed, forward thinking manor. There is no IE specific css file, no IE specific css hacks. There are some of those less than savoury -vendor- specific css attributes, but I want this site to be more forward thinking than backward compatible. The only browsers I'm targeting are webkit and gecko based browsers. Trident (internet explorer's engine) should work provided the browser is more current than version 9.
Now that's out of the way, on with the show.
Okay, so... there's not a great deal here as yet. There are a few downloadable items for you to enjoy in the form of UI enhancements for enlightenment dr16(e16), my personal favourite *n?x window manager. If you need to see screen shots feel free to head over to pixelmasochist @ deviantArt. Due to the nature of what deviant art is becoming I no longer feel comfortable using the site for theme storage, as soon as the back end is completed here, everything will move.
Currently the 'News Buttons' do nothing apart from maybe look a bit pretty. When the mysql db has been completed and integrated these buttons will act as a window to current changes. For the home page they will show all recent events, for each individual page (e.g. enlightenment themes) they will show recent additions to that section only. This seemed like the best way to keep the front page current, it also helps users track changes to sections that interest them.
This page is pretty limited to content, but the functionality here is key. It's all one file housed in tabs using JQuery and php (primarily for scandir).
Enlightenment (e16) Themes
Enlightenment, e16, DR16 call it what you will. The reason it's still in use 10+ years on is because it's bloody fantastic!
I figured the best way to make everyone aware of the state that these themes are in is with a naming convention. If there's an AC in the theme name, it's due to the actionclasses.cfg. These are the action classes from dr0.16.4 (I think. It could be .5 or .6, I'm not sure but this is just here so that you know that the action classes may behave oddly compared to 'normal'... whatever that is). If there's an OFC in the title that denotes that it's using the Original Font Configuration style. There's no fonts.theme.cfg and there's also a high probability that the font's won't be aligned correctly in the title bar. If the theme name has none of these things, it's pretty stable and new and should just work. I'm hoping to get all the themes at least up to this standard, if not better.
Lastly, if there's a BMP in the title then the theme has a Bit Map font dependency. Alas, you're on your own when it comes to finding out which font that may be. All is not lost as I generally use either my own fonts which are available on this very site, or parts of the Artwiz collection. Thankfully, due to it's popularity the Artiz font collection is available through most major distro's. If your distribution/flavour does not have it's own packaged version, skip to the external resources section as I have nailed down a few links for Bit Map fonts.
Bit Map Fonts
Install: Consult your (distro/flavour)'s documentation regarding installation of bitmap fonts.
The console font collection that's here was not created by me. I would very much like to find out the original authors of these fonts so that they can be duly credited as some of them are pure genius! I'm also uncertain of the rights to distribute these, so I'll keep them here until I am informed that I can no longer do so. They were originally part of a Linux console font set that I found a very long time ago and my brother wrote a program to convert them to the bdf format for X11 use.
The lfp-fix/var collections were also not created by me. These fonts have been released into the public domain so I'm housing them here for ease of access and I'm pretty sure some of my ethemes depend on some of these fonts being installed.
Here are a few patches for Propellerhead's Reason. Some may be useful, others may be junk. As the site progresses more things should appear here, with images and a much better description of the patch in question and possibly some tutorials.
Here's an example of music that I have made with Reason
