Nice work!

You would not be interested by any chance in joining forces and extending/improving Quartz?

have to say, I'm most impressed.
Could I convince you to share them?

and not to derail the topic but ... for what it's worth, I'm also in the process of moving Quartz forward.
Alot done so far but much more to accomplish. I'd be happy to reciprocate in the endeavor.

I'm not sure I will have time to do any coding for at least a month but it would be nice if you guys could do a fork at GitHub. That way it would be easy to track changes and merge the code.

I'm sure you both have nice ideas and I love fastcolors' work so far.

A few things I've been working on. Please note, they are all in progress. None [except the logos] are completely done.

Besides the new controls and couple of new views, I've been going through the code to [try] to make it more modular.
But the really important part [to me at least] is to have color be customization EVERYWHERE. Want green backgrounds? OK. How bout red filters behind text? No prob. Blue letters w/ orange dropshadows? Sure. The examples in the screen caps are the sliders.

Thoughts?

I like your work.
even though I was going more for the "apple way" as in... not too many customizable options.. Wink
I'm working on modular too.

for me is all about how many clicks to get where you want to be, and what infos you can gather on the way..
I like quartz but it's too "Labely" .. I'd like (almost) everything to be "iconsy" and don't wanna end up with one of those extrafancy too heavy skins.

I'll probably be workin some more on the code and up some screens.
