Poll: You will buy a Material Design UI pack for Lazarus?
« on: November 28, 2017, 02:58:51 pm »
I'm thinking on making a full Material Design UI pack for Lazarus for LCL, but since it will be a lot of time consuming, I'm thinking on selling it. I already have experience making a lot of components for BGRAControls.

It can contain a lot of components like these available here:
https://material.angularjs.org/latest/demo/

But I want your opinion, you will buy a set of components like this for Lazarus, LCL only?

I don't have much money. :-[
But if the price <= $50, I may buy it.

Of course, it will not worth too much since it's just UI, I'm thinking on $15.

I will definitely buy it. Give my your PayPal account.
I'll be your first customers.

Seriously I frequently purchase 'things' from and donate money to WordPress and other graphics plugin writers for my web design and graphics jobs, but usually less than $30. Yours is worth more than it.

Sure it must have a proper documentation and demos.

I'm thinking that just focusing on Material Design maybe is not the right target, but theming is the right one.

Sure, also there are good games that worth less than $30.

The poll it's 50-50 at this time. Enough for me. I'll start making it. Hopefully in Q1 2018 it's ready.

Great!

I would like to see such this money transaction happens more frequently here. Because I believe open source app hard to live longer if it is not supported by money. This encourages people to use Lazarus and write better codes.

Good idea! Will it be OpenSource, though,?! I would back it with money if it is free software!

yes and definitely more even if it comes from you.

Sure is a good way to get more stuff into Lazarus.

Well I don't get the OpenSource with payments too much..

The poll it's 50-50 at this time. Enough for me. I'll start making it. Hopefully in Q1 2018 it's ready.

I started it, when a bug in BGRABitmap comes to live! At the moment BGRABitmap doesn't support retina display for macOS. And I started it with BGRABitmap.

Doing it with normal Canvas (that works fine on retina display) is a lot harder for me (rounded borders, shadows, SVG...). I need to see if it can be possible.

I don't know if another graphics package for Lazarus works fine on retina display.

But I don't lost the initiative.

Yes, with documentation.

Y si la documentación está traducida al español, mejor.
Lazarus 1.6 FPC 3.0.0 Linux Mint Mate 17.2 x86_64 GTK-2
Zeos 7.1.3 - Sqlite 3.8.2

Hi, I decided that instead of making a new set of components I will keep updating BGRAControls, I need your support in Patreon!
https://www.patreon.com/lainz

Keep coding with BGRAControls, I will add all the new stuff and exclusive packages in Patreon.

Lainz.

Hi Lainz,
I think this is a wonderful decision! I’ve just started backing you - it’s not that much but I hope that there will be some other patreons, too!

Best regards,
Marc
