Color labels


We’ve made a decision to regularly update this blog, in order to make it more “Developer Blog” instead of “News Board”. I, Marguerite or Maga, as a close insider to Hotot team, will introduce current development focus, developers’ activities, and unleashed features here continuously.

Nowadays our main (almost solo) developer @shellex is tightly coding Hotot’s redesigned Kismet Content Filter Firewall. Theoretically, it will be a click-away filter system for fresh users, and Regex-like auto-precessing assistant for geeks through built-in macros. I’ll blog about it in detail later this week.

Yesterday an idea bumped up, so I designed and pushed her to code overnight temporarily on this new feature: Color Label.

What is Color Label? it’s colored bars ahead of tweets visually, but grants users possibility to redistribute concentrations between followings and distinguish key roles you eagerly care about from ordinary crowd.

Here’s a snapshot under openSUSE:

Color Label in Hotot

And here’s the default color pattern I mixed, each of the colors ships with a unique name to show our honor to specific person or affair, like scientist names an asteroid:
