I have only tested this with Firefox so I haven’t made these changes live yet, since Microsoft have decided to ditch their own HTML rendering engine in favour of Google’s I guess we only need to test with Chrome and Firefox these days?
I have added SVG versions for most of the technology logos:
See this issue for more details.
Just got an email from @SzczepanOfAnimorph instructing me to upload an SVG to the wiki and post the link here:
Blake House logo here https://wiki.coops.tech/w/index.php?title=File:BlakeHouseCooperative.svg&oldid=2858
MediaBlaze Hosts Logo has been uploaded to Wiki at: https://wiki.coops.tech/wiki/File:Mediablazehostslogo.svg
Thanks for doing all this.
Please see attached our svg file.
Animorph logo SVG has been uploaded onto the Wiki, thank you Chris!
I’d love to have uploaded this to the wiki as requested, but, uh, how to register on the wiki seems to be, uh, somewhere between undocumented and unachievable.
So – attached here is a drop-in replacement for the Open Data Services logo. Cheers!
The front page of the wiki links to the Infrastructure and Communication page which has:
There are a lot of people with administrator access who are able to create accounts for others, I’ll create one for you.
I consumed some time and have successfully crunched through every service currently in the repo. These svgs are (hopefully) syncing to the CoTech NextCloud folder as I type, but let me know if there’s a better place to put them.
Cheers @Hannah that is fantastic, I’ll sort them all out from there tomorrow.
I’ve added the services SVGs but it is worth noting that most of them are actually larger, some a lot larger, than the PNG versions, this is because they have been converted from raster images, rather than drawn as SVG images, if they were drawn from scratch they would be a lot smaller — at some point in the future it would be great to have a set of original vector icons.
Done, updated here: https://dev.coops.tech/co-op/blake-house-filmmakers-co-op
I’ll push all the update to the live site later.
Thanks Chris. They were mostly Font Awesome icons I believe so should be available as SVGs.
Could be a good task for someone who wants to learn how to update the website next hack day.
Nice one, thank you Chris!
Just had a look at this as it didn’t match up to my quick assessment of the size difference yesterday.
- Comparing png to svg the overall reduction for the set is 209kb.
- Of the 53 service images, 25 are now smaller (with an average decrease of 10.16kb), 10 are the same, and 18 are bigger (with an average increase of 2.5kb).
- Only 2 of the images that were image traced are among those that are now bigger (by 1kb each). The rest of the images that are now slightly larger are all open source original svgs, as the pngs were too low quality to get a good trace of.
Not sure that image trace is the culprit! Or if there is even a crime?
Really sorry, I clearly spent less time than you looking at this and of course you are right, the biggest service logos are PNG images not SVG’s and size wise they are good compared to some of the the large client logos, we could do with compressing / scaling some of these.
Which services logos do we need better versions of, the ones for which “the pngs were too low quality”?
Hey Chris, no worries, sorry I missed this message earlier in the month.
The images where the pngs were low quality are the ones I replaced with new original vector icons, so all good for now!
