Hudson extreme makeover!

Posted by kohsuke on February 22, 2006 at 5:32 PM PST

The other day I found the Tango project, which provides a high-quality reusable icon library under the Creative Commons Share-Alike license. I like these icons so much that I decided to use it for Hudson.

Another good thing about the Tango project is that their icons come in SVG. Besides the obvious fact that you can use them with any size, SVG enables me to change icons. I'm not an artist, so I definitely can't make large changes without spoiling it, but for example I can still change colors, merge two, or remove some pieces, and the results still look very nice.

Furthermore, Tango project offers a color palette, so I can pick a few colors from it for the banner and they look nicely with icons (at least much much better than anything I can come up with on my own.) So here goes a few screen shots.

Lastly, 1.0.15 has a few minor functionality improvements, such as an ability to create a new project by copying an existing one, more prominent key links, and little auto-completion assist for some of the form fields.
