Any plans to release this as a Drupal 7 project?

Do you volunteer?
So far the module did not catch much attention, although I think it's a nice one.
I think I will D7 it one day, but don't give it a high priority atm.

Title: Port to Drupal 7 » Port Imagene gradient generator to Drupal 7
Issue tags: +D7 porting, +port to d7, +d7 ports

Less vague title + appropriate tags. way of subscribing ;)

...hey Andreas, you use camel-casing in all your projects' names. I didn't want to start filing issues on each one of them separately, so... Take a look here: #1103208: Projects' names should be checked in .info files for correct capitalization.

@klonos (#3), "camel-casing"
The term "camel case" first made me think you are talking about in-code identifiers. Now I realize you are talking about the display name like "Imagene Gradient Generator". I would not use the term camel case for anything that has a space in between..

I found that a lot of projects, not just mine, use an all-ucfirst naming. I will fix this when I do other work on these modules.
For DQX AdminMenu I'm not sure, because the camel case is kind of the "brand name" of this thing. "DQX admin menu" is not as nice, imo.

Yes, I know. There is no official fancy name/term for "capital first letters of each word" though, so I used that. I see you use "all-ucfirst" which is pretty smart. Anyways, you got the point ;)

I know that *a lot* of projects use all-ucfirst, but still it doesn't mean they should. Some maintainers even aren't familiar with that Drupal coding standard. They just saw other projects doing it, so they did it too. That's why I filed the issue I link to in #3 in Coder's issue queue. I thought that since a lot of reviewers use it, it might help "evangelize" proper project name capitalization.

As for DQX AdminMenu -regardless of it being as nice or not-, the proper would be "DQX admin menu" ("DQX" is an acronym and is thus excluded, same as "API", "CSS" etc), as you seem to realize yourself. "DQX Admin menu" wouldn't be proper either, unfortunately :/

Thanx for considering this and for the prompt reply Andreas.

I love the idea of this module so much. I'll keep this one in my back pocket until a time I can use it. I would love to see some high resolution sample images next to the example URLS.

Version: 6.x-1.x-dev » 7.x-1.0-unstable1

Thanx Andreas!! ...any chance we get a 7.x-dev too?

7.x-dev is waiting for the packaging script.
Btw, in many cases the official release is out faster than the dev, exactly because of the packaging script. If you really want as fast as possible, you should rather pull from git.


These are the type of images you will usually want to produce.
For high-resolution, I am not sure, what do you want to see?

Version: 7.x-1.0-unstable1 » 7.x-1.x-dev

I know the script takes 12 hours or so. I just wanted to know if there was going to be a dev because some maintainers choose not to have devs for their projects.

The reason why I use devs instead of pulling from git is that devs give update notices while the builds from git not (AFAIK).
