[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Does that list mostly make sense?
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] this is so awesome
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] yes
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] it does
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Tried to make it vaguely readable by normal humans who aren't building this stuff all day :)
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] and Translation FTW!
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Did you see my message about that on basecamp?
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] we'll redigest if it needs to be made human readable ;)
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] yeah, I did
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] was just about to get to it
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Sweet just checked and the transifex auto update has picked up changes I made today
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] must be working
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] Now we can get our awesome translator community to jump in

[nigelb] \o/ This is pretty cool then :)
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] You can thank @Robbie and @brianherbert for sleuthing around with Sameroom
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Hi Nigel!
[nigelb] Heh, I did see Robbie's experiments the other day. Hi Robbie!
[nigelb] Congrats on the release
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Still trying to figure out a skype connection
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] but relying on sameroom reverse engineering that protocol

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Morning team
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Thanks for pushing all the release comms @AngelaOduor @Michelle and @Jess
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @sophie added screenshots on
May 14 2015 20:43
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] pretty sure everything thats broken is broken on the main branch. Mind if I land that diff and keep moving?
May 14 2015 20:54
[Michelle Hamilton-Page, Ushahidi] Congrats team!! Morning, @Robbie! It was my pleasure to support the release comms! Go, Team V3!
May 14 2015 20:59
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] @Robbie thanks for the screenshots. and yeah, move forward. I just fixed that bug with the buttons not hiding on large screens
May 14 2015 21:33
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] @Robbie also fixed the filters label issue you noted. let me know if you notice anything else!
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Awesome thanks :)
May 14 2015 21:43
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Alright. The PL should now all pass HTML validation with the exception of a few duplicate IDs where partials are included twice.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] And the PL guidelines which I'll do later
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Haven't done CSS validation but I think it'll be ok for now.
May 14 2015 21:58
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I'm thinking I might spin up a demo site for the pattern library merge branch.. That way we can show it off and designers can review as it progresses :)
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] yes! i love that idea
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Alright. I'm going to try and land the markup and styling changes today. But with no JS wiring..
May 14 2015 22:44
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @sophie how do you expect the markup to change when theres no header image.. do I just remove the <img> tag? or the entire .hero-image div?
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] entire .hero-image div
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] then the CSS will respond appropriately when it sees it's not there
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] does that work?
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] right. Thats better
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I was just hiding the img and it was weird :)
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Do we have any design for login / logout buttons?
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I can improvise and then push back to you for review if not..
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] I'm imagining that log out will be a link within the user dropdown
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] log in / sign up would go in its place
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] but yes, improvise and i'll edit afterwards!
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Yea sorry I meant login / register .. will do :)
[Brian Herbert, Ushahidi] You're telling a developer to improvise. Scary. ;D
[Brian Herbert, Ushahidi] That's how phabricator was made :D
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] except a designer never reviewed that afterwards!
May 14 2015 22:49
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] or should i say.......... .... .... aphterwards
[Brian Herbert, Ushahidi] Truth
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] now that i'm looking at it - the "add post" button should become a log-in button if the user has not logged in
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] unless a user can add a post without being logged in
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] typing outloud here
May 14 2015 23:32
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] users can submit without logging in.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] So I tried to just drop out the user name for a login button but styling gets weird
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] currently you have <span>username</span> but I need something more like <span><a>login</a></span>
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] .. though looking at it.. the current <button> along side the username should really wrap the whole thing.. since they're both clickable (ie. semantically its all one button with a username and icon inside it)
May 14 2015 23:38
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] getting there:
need to populate filters with real content.. and get posts into the map again.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] but the collection/saved search menus have real content.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Lots of small bits. But I could almost land this and spin out micro tasks to the team soon
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Also: no bower in the client build now.. that all happens in the PL :)
