This is pretty nice! Are you going to design more? Please tell me you will!
and471's avatar
what do you mean more? :)
ManaCraft's avatar
I mean are going to make more _elementary_ mockups? xD

More non-elementary mockups are fine too though :p
and471's avatar
Ah right :) Well I normally do a mix, as I don't use elementary myself but I do like its aesthetics :)

In gnome3 you are able to select colors and paste it somewhere else trough dragging them across, try it with system monitor, gimp, terminal color, etc.

Didn't know, thaks for the info mate.

Yeah but you are not able to choose an arbitrary colour from anywhere on the screen - this is what this would be for :)

Wouldn't this be a small applet rather than an indicator, since it doesn't show what is happening in a system wide process?
and471's avatar
Well I needed it in an easily reachable place and I guess an applet for Plank would be a good compromise but I don't use Plank :)

An why do indicators have to be a system-wide process? (i.e. sound indicator and all the other application indicators?)

That's not the problem.
The thing with indicators is that they, well, indicate, and although this seems like a good idea, it doesn't actually indicate anything.

Yep. The dock would be more appropriate. :)

Very nice design! Preferences could be more like a button, but great!
