I’ve been working ~8-hour days on tinypapers and learning Kivy, which is actually longer than I’m used to. I’m expecting my mental stamina to increase over time, which is a pretty safe bet… but for now, I’m tired. I think I’m just having an off day.
Nevertheless, I did a few hours of tinkering with the interface. A lot of what I’ve been adjusting is structure and stuff, so you can’t see a ton of change, but here’s a quick screenie to whet your curiosity:
As you can see, I managed to put in some margins around the button. There are quite a few issues, though.
To name a few that you can actually see:
1. If there aren’t enough buttons to fill the page, they sit at the bottom rather than the top.
2. For some reason, only the second sample button I put in is showing up.
3. The blue-gray color looks a lot more blue and clash-y when it’s next to the other blue and the turquoise. I need to put borders in that pomegranate red around things so they aren’t right next to each other, or change the color scheme a little.
Of course, there are a zillion things you CAN’T see that I need to be working on…
…but can’t right now because my brain is not at its clearest. Maybe I’ll just down an energy drink and keep going. That sounds more fun than being restless for the rest of the day and just thinking about what I want to be doing (i.e., this). Or maybe I’ll do chores and paperwork and catch up on email. That needs to be done, too.
