AppCenter by DanRabbit AppCenter by DanRabbit
Doing mocks for the first version of AppCenter. That means the feature set needs to stay simple. No reviews or anything crazy yet. Just what data we get from a regular debian repository (plus screenshots).

I want to have some nice looking banners to spice things up a bit, but we don't have the resources to go design a ton and we won't have the bandwidth to host them. So, the idea here is to automatically generate a nice color scheme based on the icon's colors and created banners based on a few different layout templates.

Also, in the category grid, it should dynamically resize. So if you have an ultra-wide window, it can go to 3, 4, etc columns. But if you have an ultra small window, it should shrink back to just 1 (a list basically).

I noticed that you do not have any resources to design a bunch of banners and stuff like that. I would be willing to do a few here and there in illustrator. I will do it for free so I can get extra practice and so I can have a few more things to put into my portfolio. You can note me if you like and I will do some renderings for you.

The concept here was to generate banners in code using a few templates and a color scheme generating algorithm. We don't really have to resources to maintain banners for 3rd party developers and large images take up extra space on our servers.

Ah, I am following now. That indeed would cause a large server load. For such a task you would need a heck of a server and possibly a MPLS in place. Good luck to you :)

Looks great!

It's a bit difficult to tell which ones are local apps and which are web apps, though. Maybe that could be improved.

There shouldn't be any web apps. Only native apps.

Ok, so Facebook, Twitter or Gmail are out of place there?

Or maybe they have native apps like they do on iOS and Android ;)
