BTW, forgot to say that the write tab should be able to use any of the available transformations you have installed. So if you happened to prefer Markdown over textile, and had a markdown transformation installed, then you could use it.

Something like this, maybe?

Re: Textpattern [future] admin side - proposals

Regarding SASS, I was digging around and found Turbine. Looks amazing.

What a phenomenal front-end development TXP Tip this would make…

@turbine
    plugins:backgroundgradient

#foo
    background-image: linear-gradient(top, #FFF, #000)

outputs this CSS:

#foo {
    background-image: linear-gradient(top, #FFF, #000);
    background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(top,#FFF,#000);
    background-image: -webkit-gradient(linear,left top,left bottom,from(#FFF),to(#000));
    background-image: -khtml-gradient(linear,left top,left bottom,from(#FFF),to(#000));
    filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#FFFFFFFF,endColorstr=#FF000000,gradientType=0);
    -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#FFFFFFFF,endColorstr=#FF000000,gradientType=0)";
}

All compatibility done for you. Yes please…back end themes or front end, take your pick, I’m sure that’d improve quality of life :-)

Three cheers! :-D

Is that set of transformations extendible? Can I just drop a transformation into the site structure somewhere, and viola, have it available?

Yep. It’s just a plugin.

Cool, looks similar to the Sass / Compass combination. I found PHamlP, but it looks buggy judging from the issues tab. Turbine looks better if we must use a solution written in PHP.

Re: Textpattern [future] admin side - proposals

I’m just in the middle of rewriting my TXP5 default theme CSS with Sass, very impressed so far, thanks for the suggestion aswihart!

Re: Textpattern [future] admin side - proposals

Just a heads-up in case you thought I’d not progressed with this project, here are a couple of screenshots. It’s a loooong way from being finished (going to take me another couple of months at least, due to the sheer scale of the work and other commitments) but it’s inching along. The whole thing is keyboard navigable and responsive too which is nice.

On an iPhone…

Re: Textpattern [future] admin side - proposals

Just a quick thought – when playing with layout options, you should try with a long site name (‘My Site’ is pretty short), and long article titles.

Re: Textpattern [future] admin side - proposals

@Philippe

Yes, that’s something I’ve been considering already – long article titles are not an issue (there’s nowhere currently in the theme that they are non-fluid. The site name in the top bar was is an issue at thinner screen widths – my current solution is to truncate the site name with ellipsis using CSS (exactly the same as how they have solved the same problem in WordPress v3.3 by the way).

This is an example
