SVG for Plasmoids/widgets. part 1: Education

Small SVGs suitable for use as background for Plasmoids and widgets:


Blackboard


Example uses: for showing content with white or pastel color text (Kalzium - did you know) or simple drawings.



White board


Example uses: for showing content with black or typical white-board-colors on text or simple drawings.



Projector screen closed


For saving space on desktop when not in use?



Projector screen ready


For showing full color content like pictures movies or similar.




Projector screen and blackboard combined
blackboard active


Could be used to show different content in one widget were user could interact to select between two modes (example: text on the blackboard and illustration on the screen). A toggle between modes could be a mouse click in area A (below).



Projector screen and blackboard combined
screen active


The screen mode for full color possibilities on the content displayed.
Interactive area suggestions:
A - toggle between screen and blackboard content
B - draw new/more content
C - clean up and start over again

Functionality mentioned above is only suggestions from me. Use the drawings as you like. No interactions code exist from me and I can't code. I can help if code needs special content on the drawings, let me know what is needed.

Illustrations on this post is made in Inkscape: The blackboards, white-boards and projector-screens is the SVGs drawn by me. The stick-people-drawings on the first blackboard and on the white-board is early inkscape work by my (by then about 4 or 5 year old) son. The pretending to be desktop-background is an old OS/2 wallpaper heavy modified by me.

I think the retracting projector screen would be brilliant for showing/hiding a small preview in kpresenter. It would help suggest to the user how it might look on a wall. That and your images would just look cool there :-)

oooh. shiny shiny! we definitely need more artwork in plasma .. so this makes me get rather excited and happy =)

i'll have to grab these items and play around with them when i get the time. thank you, and please.... KEEP THEM COMING! =)

Jarle Richard Akselsen said...

Thanks Will and Aaron J. Seigo:-)

I usually send my SVGs to Carsten Niehaus of Kalzium by email and they end up sometimes in Kalzium SVG, I send these also but I don't know if/where they end up.
If there is interest outside Kalzium for the SVGs I should have them available from this blogg ideally via a link to a directory structure I can maintain also. I need to look for a solution for that (a free hosting of my SVGs), but until then I can send them to anyone interested by email. Send me a email-request to jarle.r.akselsen at gmail dot com.

Mart said...

those are fantastic man :)
at tokamak we talked a bit about a widget like that, for now it always been only an abstract idea, but having already neat graphics for that is sweeet :)

shamaz said...

This is a great concept for a plasmoid :).
I think you're a great svg artist, it's a pity your work is only used in kalzium ;). You should consider making some work for plasma, kde games or amarok too.
If you need a quick solution for hosting your files, I think you can ask for an kde SVN account on irc. I'm sure someone will help you set up a folder on playgroung. Then all your files would be accessible via an url like : http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/playground/artwork/Oxygen/davigno/ (this one contains the work of David Vignoni).
good luck :)

Jarle Richard Akselsen said...

Thanks to Mart and Shamaz:-)

SVG account on irc. So thats the way it's done, I'll try that.

I'm happy to see the interest for the SVGs outside Kalzium and to me it's like a bonus if they are used els-were also, but my main focus is to create graphics in the Kalzium/Educational area in a long term view. I am happy with the variety of work I get to do there and I have a lot of work left to do. So I don't have to worry about what to do for long time yet.

A little story about how I get to contribute to Kalzium:

I was learning myself the basic of Inkscape and looked for something useful to create vile learning. I found out that GRAMPS (genealogy software) needed some icons and was calling out for help without receiving some for a long time. So I created some icons and tried to find a way to send them (I'am not a programmer and not into the way they communicate, and was relative newly connected to the internet myself). I did not find a way to get in touch with them (I was looking for email-adresses mainly) and after a week did I saw Carstens blogpost calling for SVGs for the Iconsets. The GRAMPS icons were never send or contributed and were soon forgotten by me. The first contributions from me became icons for Kalzium instead, because it was easy for a no-programmer to get in contact, and work I do get used.

Why am I telling this? I don't know, it's funny story to me at-least:-)
