Not minimalistic enough.
I messed around with the #pants design a bit. I hope you like it. A couple of notes:
- Apologies to Google, who I took a healthy bit of inspiration from. :-)
- It’s far from polished – a couple of hours of heavy CSS hacking will only get you so far. The major browsers appear to work fine, except, of course, IE, which I haven’t even tested yet. (I’m expecting major breakage in that one.)
- Yes, the whole thing is looking very “app” right now, and not very “blog”. Here’s the thing: you will be able to create custom themes – CSS-only at first, but later maybe even HTML – for your #pants. These will be applied to what is considered your blog – the public part of your #pants – while the internal bits (like the timeline etc.) remain in the base design (which you’re looking at right now.)
- I used the opportunity to make some much-needed improvements to the rest of #pants; most importantly, your timeline will now load posts in batches, with a little (currently non-automatic) endless scroller at the bottom.
