Legacy Phoebus and Phoebus Ascendant Discussion Thread

Post by New Tobin Paradigm » 2020-09-29, 16:24

Since Project Phoebus has been absorbed into Binary Outcast (because I was generally the only one who really worked on it and created it) and is being rewritten to better accommodate the many add-on types and better provide cross-organizational/project service.. I thought I would, once again, open a place for discussion and questions regarding the software that runs various Add-ons Sites.

Don't make me regret this...
Is it that you have no idea where you are going or what you're supposed to be doing right now?
Or did you just assume when you saw that timer that something in this room is capable of turning it off?

Due curiosity I was looking for Phoebus Project's "official" page / repository. But it seems the repo got nuked?

The supposed repo at https://github.com/Pale-Moon-Addons-Team/phoebus/ which got linked at https://binaryoutcast.com/projects/ and https://addons.palemoon.org/ (in the footer) result in 404 :?:

I found another repo (https://github.com/Acidburn0zzz/phoebus). But since I'm under the impression you and other developers modernized it already, I don't think it's the valid one.

The repo still exists and yes there are various cloned repos about.. None of them stay up to date. That one is WAY old.

I will re-evaluate making it public again but given the massive abuse of my projects.. I am not very comfortable doing that these days.

Did you have an actual question though?

Not sure if this counts as an actual question, so feel free to disregard it: would it be possible in the new version to have the "edit" and "submit update" UI elements be actual buttons instead of icons?
I know that the icons look cleaner, but they are also small and it's not like there isn't any horizontal space left for actual buttons.

There will be UX improvements of the panel to be sure as it will need to accomidate the expanded feature set.
