Trying to improve the Bubba interface

Post by Kamiel » 10 Dec 2009, 17:14

Bubba server is a great little machine and I'm very happy with it. I'm however a professional designer and I found the user interface sometimes a little to confusing and much to cluttered for my tastes. That's why I set out improving the interface. It's however gotten a little out of hand and I ended up doing a complete redesign, including a set of custom icons.

I've started out with the sections I use the most some of which you can see in the screenshots below. I've had the startpage, downloadmanager and filemanager working nicely but after a recent upgrade to 1.2.4 I'm going to need to redo some of that work.

I was hoping to only having to create a custom view, which would be easily distributable, but that wasn't possible. I've also had to slightly modify some of the controllers to get it working like I wanted to.

I'm curious what you guys think about my design.

Hi all,

We at Excito also would like to, officially, say that we are impressed by the work of Kamiel. We really appreciate when our users tweak or uses Bubba in an unusual way. And in this case we have contacted Kamiel to see if we can cooperate in some way to get this usable by you other people.

Once again, Nice work.

Hello guys from excito,

don't wait to long to publish that interface. I am a designer too and i must say.. dam good work Kamiel.
I had started up my own re-design too around x-mas, but when i see that. Kamiel have done nearly the same things, so i stop with my work today. There is no need to find out the wheel two times.

Kamiel, great work brother. I will provide this to all my bubba friends, and that are many here in the netherlands.
