[Rui]: THIS GUI GUIDE IS A DRAFT I'M WRITING, SHR HAS NOT SUBSCRIBED IT (BUT I HOPE IT WILL).

SHR GUI Guide

Hopefully this guide will help you design better graphical user interfaces for small screens, namely when the window manager behaves as Enlightenment (with Illume2).

No UI Clutter

Whenever possible, try to hide buttons, toolbars, and other unimportant GUI elements.

Focus on what your application is for, and use the screen as best as you can.

As an example, here's ElmDentica?'s main screen. ElmDentica? is a StatusNet client application, mainly focused on Identica, which is a distributed and federated Twitter like clone, which is Free Software (yay).

No Close Button
