We can do a more comprehensive re-design down the line, but for 2.8 final we should replace the stuff on the side with these links (or some links quite similar to them):
Mono for Android (docs.xamarin.com/android)
API Reference (http://docs.xamarin.com/mono/api)
Xamarin Support (support.xamarin.com)
MonoTouch on StackOverflow (stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/monotouch)
Mono for Android on StackOverflow (stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/monodroid)
Xamarin News (from blog.xamarin.com)
Introducing the Xamarin App Showcase
iOS and Android Updated
FWIW, if you want to experiment with the Welcome Page content and layout:
1) Create this directory inside your MD app bundle: MonoDevelop.app/Contents/MacOS/lib/monodevelop/bin/branding
2) Download this file and copy it into that directory:
3) Edit it - the format is pretty self-evident from that example
Thanks, this is useful!
However, this RSS URL didn't work as a NewsFeed:
It doesn't support RSS or Atom. It simply expects a file with a single <Links> element containing <Link> elements, same format as the links sections in the welcome page.
You can also have multiple newsfeeds, as long as they have different IDs.
Oh, and you can omit the _ prefix on attributes if you're next expecting to use gettext.
What's the status on this one? Does it still need doing?
AFAIK yes. Also, we need someone to do some server-side work to generate this links XML MD is expecting for our blog. Hugo can do that.
I'll get cracking on this and see what I can get together. Michaels instructions imply this should be simple enough
If at all possible, can I get two things from you:
1) A replacement image for this: https://github.com/mono/monodevelop/blob/master/main/src/core/MonoDevelop.Ide/branding/WelcomePage_Logo.png
It's the image displayed in the welcome screen when you start up MonoDevelop. Something mentioning xamarin would be nice. After that, I'm not too sure what Nat would like.
2) A little xml file in the form of:
<Link _title="Blog article" href="http://blog.xamarin.com/SomeArticle.html"
_desc="Short blurb about the article contents"
containing a couple of interesting/useful blog articles from xamarins blog. That file needs to be placed somewhere online, probably on xamarin.com, so MD can download it at runtime. If the location of the file can be decided on right now, I can embed it now and we can put up the actual content in a day or two.
Oh, i should also point out that the image I linked above has a matching file so we can 'extend' it seamlessly:
You'll need to create a similar file for whatever logo is created. Basically if the actual logo image is 300px wide, we need that extender so we can fill in extra space so the logo appears to cover the entire screen so we get an effect like this:
Done and committed to the 2.8 branches
