Squeeze Rebound by DanRabbit Squeeze Rebound by DanRabbit
This is a rebound of [link]

I really loved this mockup by ~nookienoq and wanted to play with it a little bit. The concept is just so dead simple, I love it.


mistakes I need to correct:
* on the bottom left window there should be a "back" button and the option to password protect the archive.
* The archive icon in the top left window should be open since it hasn't been packed yet.
* Possibly add an "add file" button?
* Back/forward controls and/or breadcrumbs for navigating compressed dirs?

Awesome! But I think that maximize/fullscreen button is useless in all of the dialogs :P

A button in order to add a file (like the drag file here, but smaller with a + instead of the archive icon) would look great after the last file of the second image (flash in this case).

I'm not sure if you should add a "add file button" on the first image, maybe just open a file explorer if the user clic on the window.

Dan, is elementaryOS will have its own CPU-Z? Or something like PC Wizard? I suggest the name for it later: Hardy.

:D

I like your mockup designs all.

This looks awesome, but are those icons in the top right supposed to be like that? Or in actual usage would "TextFile" and stuff like that be replaced with the actual filename? Also, make a mockup of what it looks like when you're browsing an archive. :)

What if you wish to decompress an archive?
would that be unsqueeze? or perhaps another name?

I've always been more than a little perplexed by the decision to farm-out archive manager functionality from the file manager. Surely an archive is little more than packaged and/or compressed file(s), and surely such should be handled transparently within the file manager (something Windows XP did, with limited success, with compressed folders). I filed a blueprint against Marlin a while back with this sentiment in mind (see [link])

I do like the drag-and-drop UI design presented hear, although I must say I'm not as infused about the white style as applied here as I was when you applied it to 'readable' (or 'non/limited-interactive'?) dialogues and applications (e.g. about dialogues, ebook readers, pdf readers, etc...) in the past. The progress dialogue looks particularly out of place, and I rather prefer the current grey dialogue (disclaimer: the preceding was a humble opinion, and not a not-so-humble opinion).

The problem is in creating apps that do one thing and one thing well. By that argument, surely a music player is little more than a file browser with gstreamer support ;) By keeping things small and modular we allow for more granular maintenance, more focused development, and even more choice for our users among other things.

There is a key difference between your analogy and my own. Archive management is file management. To the casual user moving files into and out of archives is little different to moving them into and out of directories (as is creating and deleting archives and directories).

On the other had playing and managing ones music library is clearly a different function entirely. For one thing the organising principal of files, directories and archives (file names) doesn't apply itself well to music library management. Music is organised along one of several category systems (track name, track number, album, artist, genre, BPM, etc...). That can't easily be shoehorned onto a file-manager.

That being said, as long as archive management *look* and *feels* integral to file management, nothing else really matters. :-)

Wow, i think this looks really great. Maybe it could also be a bootable .ISO builder too. I know it, in a way, doesn't fit into the remit of the compression app but it also makes sense. It at least allows people to understand what an ISO really is...

just a thought.

Will there be a window to UNcompress files?

I totally agree with Dan. The idea i also had is just automatically unpack the archive. No need for extra window to just unpack some files. Keep it simple ;)

DanRabbit Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
I dunno, I think that to be honest if you try to open an archive it should just uncompress automatically. I've never had the need to only extract part of an archive or browser around inside an archive.
Reply
:iconvictorlapin:
victorlapin Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2011
And I, for example, need that feature regularly. Maybe it can be done with two windows (one for unpack all/browse buttons and two for browsing itself). Or you can be right, of course, and most users don't need it =)
I'm just telling my opinion. But overall mockup is great.

Well, for example, I have a packed elementary icon theme and I need one certain icon from it. I really do not want to unpack the whole archive, I just want to browse and extract one file I need.

I've never truely had to extract certain files from an archive (except that at times I'm only interested in one file within a zip file and just take that one) and also it was kinda annoying on a mac to have to search for that one file if it's in say the downloads folder that tends to be quite big, it's especially annoying if you don't know the name of the file.

Also a question: will there be a window to add files to a compressed file. Like for instance when you add mods to minecraft you need to drag files to a certain subdirectory in the main .jar file.

:iconanubeon:
Anubeon Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2011
How about a set-up that automatically decompresses the entire archive to a temporary directory (e.g. .~archivename.tar) when clicked. That way you could have the best of both; archives treated transparently as if they were regular directories, and the ability to unpack individual files by simply moving them from the temporary directory to another directory. I filed a blueprint against Marlin with this sentiment in mind a while ago ([link]).

Well there's the same fallback excuse as usual, "put more emphasis on content, less on controls" xD

But to be completely honest my main motivation was that I didn't like how the titlebar blended in with the window. There's no toolbar here so it looks kind of awkward.

Anubeon Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2011
Ahh. I see what you mean with the lack of toolbar and the blend between window decorations and content area. I don't think it's *that* bad, but I see what you mean. :-)
