Standardized icon library to be used by FlUID apps

Hi all,

 

I've been aware of the famfamfam icons for awhile now but the fugue
icons look pretty good and equally as comprehensive as the former. Gonna
ruminate on this for a bit. Thanks to Jacob for the find and Alison for
the reiteration. :-)

 

Jacob, from what I know scalable icons would be nice but any time I've
tried to rescale a logo or icon from a vector it still needs some
tweaking post-rasterization. There is some application logic in PS that
still appears to be missing when scaling down a logo; issues such as
lack of embellishment for stroke or shading when scaled down to a
particular size. I wish it were that easy but in the meantime I'd be
happy with a bitmapped library for the time being.

 

Thanks!

In Sakai they use the Silk icon library
(http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/silk/), and usually that's where we
at UC Berkeley at least look first. 

 

A while back I also ran across this one (trying to remember if Erin
pointed me to it...): http://tango.freedesktop.org/Tango_Icon_Library

 

And on 1/23 Jacob pointed us to the Fugue library, which also looks
interesting: http://www.pinvoke.com/icon/image/fugue_all.png

 

Cheers,

Allison

It has been a point of discussion here to developer a scalable icon
library for FSS, but as of right now we dont have anything other than a
feature wishlist....

Hi all,

 

I just did a search for generic icons on the wiki and wasn't able to
find anything. Can anyone point me in the right direction wrt this? What
is everyone else currently using as their icon library? If one doesn't
exist, would everyone be agreeable to having one established? If wii
could have some sort of consensus on this I'd be more than happy to
implement.

 

Thanks!
