Compass needs some great designers to help kick start the plugin ecosystem. With compass, for the first time, designers can truly share designs in a semantic, customizable way. Please contact me if you would like to participate in the brainstorming and development of this new frontier.
You just need to implement an installer that understands the directory structure of the framework and a command line switch. Contact me for details and then fork, modify, commit, push, request pull.
Read the ToDo List. Then fork, modify, commit, push, request pull. Might want to check in with the mailing list first to make sure it’s not already being worked on.
So do we. If you have good ideas for how to QA a visual project where browser support is a major issue, We’re all ears. Hopefully we won’t screw up the frameworks during porting, but you never know.
The Compass website is going to need some love eventually. Let us know if you’d be willing to help.
Great! You can help document it here on this wiki, or go evangelize out on the ‘net.
pfff. That’s lame. Your help is much more appreciated. Unless it’s a lot of money.
