Forums : Suggestions for Ohloh 2.0

Default Project Logos

While we'd prefer seeing every project on Ohloh have its own unique logo, sometimes a project just doesn't have one yet. That's why we've added default logos to choose from.

We realize the current choices are incomplete. This is where you fit in: please suggest or consider contributing your own. Use this thread to discuss/post ideas on this feature. Thanks!

As with the existing generic console app logo, I'd suggest a generic GUI app logo as well; it seems like the most obvious missing choice. For the image, how about something like scalable/apps/preferences-system-windows.svg from gnome-icon-theme, found at http://svn.gnome.org/svn/gnome-icon-theme/trunk/scalable/apps/preferences-system-windows.svg ?

Hmmm, come to think of it, the GPL that applies to this image actually does come into play, since you'll distribute a PNG rather than the original SVG source.

You might want a "generic server application" icon. For instance, something like http://svn.gnome.org/svn/gnome-icon-theme/trunk/scalable/places/network-workgroup.svg .

Server/daemon icon seconded, for projects like djbdns or siproxd.

I'd like to put in my vote for a Perl module/project default icon.

The plug style looks great, so options for images to put into the plug include:

  • Camel (the traditional Perl mascot)
  • Onion (as seen at The Perl Foundation)
  • The letters "pm" or ".pm" (for Perl Module)

Using the camel or onion marks may require permission from O'Reilly or The Perl Foundation respectively, but in my experience the chance of them refusing is vanishingly small.

Here's the Drupal module logo I've set up for a project I work on. Feel free to reuse, modify, replace it.

@bollwyvl: Thanks for the submission - I added it right away.

@pjf: Thanks for the options. I went with the Onion logo (and sent mail to the perl foundation). Here's what it looks like onion logo.

@anmaster: Care to submit an example of what LaTeX plugin would look like?

Oh Jason, you are wonderful. ;) If you need help with The Perl Foundation, do let me know.

I'd like to have a default image for Chicken Scheme eggs (extension libraries). I think the generic egg image used in the Chicken eggdoc output is a good choice. The "plug" icon is starting to look boring already (lots of projects using it), so just use the egg on its own :)

Greetings y'all! I added:

.NET: dot net logo.

CakePHP Plugin: cakephp plugin

Happy to add more - but please try to be as specific as possible (ie: link to what to use, and for what use).

There isn't one for regular PHP applications, so I add my vote for PHP.

Can you add https://s3.amazonaws.com/bits.ohloh.net/attachments/17882/mw-ohloh_med.png for MediaWiki extensions?

Also, do you have SVN version of the plug?

I think it would be really used to have a generic 'X' plugin for XML, XSLT, XQuery and related XML technologies

A default icon for Haskell projects would be nice. Here are links to the official logo: svg png

The C library logo seems to be broken. It doesn't display at all.
