New theme icon for Tryton


(Oscar Alvarez) #1

Rational

I think the icons theme on Tryton to require a new design and current it is not unified with the web client (sao), because this use another theme, when the end users switch from desktop version to the web version are confused, because the icons are completely different, this show UX design problems and integrations between versions desktop/web.

Proposal

  • To create a new unified and nice theme icons for Tryton.
  • Using the exactly the same icons in web and sao version.

Implementation

  • Maybe to use to crowfunding campaign for to pay a professional UX designer for that Tryton have its own icon theme.
  • Choose best style for start design process using a survey between community

This is an example style ideas (but I hope another proposals from community):

I quite agree on this but for me all those examples are not qualified for Tryton because of their license.
Indeed I already thought that we could use Material icons which is under Apache License v2.0. I think it is more complete than the Free part of Font Awesome and also it will be easy for designer to extend it (from our current web agency) because they are simple and without shadow.
But I think before starting on this change some work need to be done:

  • Fix IconFactory
  • Rationalize the icon usage:
    • List the minimal set of icons that client must embed
    • List the set of icons that trytond must provide
    • List the extra icons needed for each module

Yes you are right, the license is important but the examples are just for designers inspiration :slight_smile:

I will try check out the icon Factory issue, maybe I can help.

I think before choosing Material icons, we should check that FullCalendar will work with it on new version: https://fullcalendar.io/blog/2018/03/bootstrap-4-support
