Grumpy Website


Github is testing new repo page design:

Good parts:

- The right column looks awesome: does not get in the way when you need code, but also immediately available when needed.

- Solves two-storey nested tabs problem.

- Fantastic that you can see contributors’ faces — after all, open source is about people first and foremost.

All in all, I’m glad too see many of my ideas from February 2019 implemented

Bad parts:

Repo header. They call it “responsive” design. But all they did is stretched the old, non-responsive one. It looks weird, given that the page content itself does not stretch. You have to move mouse more, which is a bad thing, and that’s it. You also get huge gap in the middle. There’s no real benefit of having this stretched.
