th1areplaceafill:  zyt?22:20
replaceafillth1a, yes22:21
replaceafillwriting my plan...22:21
th1aWhat was that layout framework thingy you pointed out last week?22:21
replaceafillthe 960 grid system?22:21
replaceafillthere's a nice video explaining how to use it22:22
th1aI'm a little annoyed that the canonical web guidelines don't seem to come with a Canonical CSS file.22:22
replaceafillth1a, ah! i didn't look for a css file when i was reading them22:22
replaceafilland they don't provide one? weird22:23
th1aI mean, they quote a lot of CSS.22:23
th1aBut there doesn't seem to be a file.22:23
th1aOf course, if I would go to some Ubuntu sites I might find it being used.22:23
replaceafillth1a, yes, that's how i discovered they use that 960 thingy22:24
th1aOh, they do.22:24
th1aI see.22:24
th1aAlso, I guess there are just lots of CCS files these days.22:24
replaceafillyvl also pointed me to this other "css framework":
replaceafillblueprint seems bigger than 960gs, it has font styles for instance22:25
replaceafillbut at the end of the day, all i'm interested in is the column layout functionality22:26
th1aIt would be good to follow Canonical's lead if practical.22:26
replaceafillas usual, i did some experiments with 960 + schooltool22:26
replaceafillbut i found out it's not good to mix our current layout with it22:27
replaceafill(colors, fonts, etc)22:27
th1aAt the moment I'm thinking about , btw.22:27
replaceafillthat one definitely look good following some ubuntu convention :)22:28
replaceafillor any convention ;)22:28
replaceafilloops outdated footer 200922:28
th1aIt's not outdated if it hasn't been updated!22:29
th1aHowever, we're due for an update.22:29
replaceafilldid you find the ubuntu design css files?22:29
th1aI started to do it earlier, but I couldn't really explain the CL part, because I didn't understand it.22:30
replaceafillyou mean, before going to portugal, right?22:30
th1aWell, I found the ones uses, but I think it might be easier for me to start from scratch with 960.22:30
th1aYes, before.22:30
replaceafillyes, 960 is "fun" to use :)22:30
replaceafillas yvl said, many people think they ("css frameworks") are overrated, but it's worth trying one :)22:31
*** menesis has joined #schooltool22:31
th1aWell, I'm way out of practice with CSS anyhow.22:31
replaceafilli'm in chapter 3 of erics meyer's "smashing css"22:32
replaceafillchapter 2 was really worth it22:32
replaceafilllots of "this will be useful in schooltool" moments22:32
th1aIn what way?22:35
replaceafillhe describes a term i didnt know "specificity"22:35
replaceafillhow the browser calculates what style to apply22:36
replaceafilland how inheritance plays a role in it22:36
replaceafillthat's what i was trying to refer to in one of our conversations in the sprint22:36
replaceafill(the source of the clash between cando and the gradebook)22:36
th1aI see.22:37
replaceafilli thought it all matter was "which" style is define last, but it's not that simple...22:37
th1aOoh... there is an OmniGraffle template for 960.22:38
th1aOK, I have to go watch this video.22:38
th1aI accidentally on purpose never have video and sound working properly on my work computer)22:39
replaceafill"accidentally on pursose" :D22:39
