Bildr was not build in one day

Like Rome Bildr was not build in 1 day. I received quiet some good suggestions (thanks) BUT things go a bit slower than expected (read: playing with UI options take time). So I fear I have to calculate 1 or more days next week to finalize the work.

Nevertheless, there is work in progress. I had to fix quiet some errors (scope variables, sections). Some shots:

Next points of attention:

  • picture detail page
  • startpage
  • menu

I was also thinking about adding a “profile” document for contributors. And make filtering more related to a person. More suggestions are welcome as usual.

Let’s have weekend and collect some inspiration =)

    Hi Pat.

    This looks great.

    In your app, do you convert the images to thumbnails and stuff (sorry for my lazyness in downloading the app!)

    Im trying to find a way to resize images when they are uploaded by the user (so i can have a thumbnail size picture for their Sametime and a larger one for display in the employee db ie 200px*200px)

    @Patrick – if you download Dennis from, there is an example of auto-thumbnailing images as they are posted. I wouldn’t call it the definitive implementation, but it should certainly get you started.

    Thanks for the lead. I’ll play with it…even though our HR nazis decided we cant have employee pictures along with the employee info. eye roll.
