Atom Package Badges


#1

Hey, I made an apm package badge generator and would like to hear some thoughts on it.

Here is an example:

apm install package-generator

I like the idea.
I think I’d just like it to be a little… prettier, you know sort of flashier?


#3

I was just thinking “monochromatic” … then I read your post @batjko.

I also think the apm install part is unnecessary.

Haha, yea well, I suppose it depends on where it is to be used, what kind of UX it is supposed to be embedded in.
If it’s a badge for use within the Atom editor, monochromatic won’t cut it.
If it’s one for the atom.io/packages listings or some promotional website, maybe, but even then I’d probably prefer it to be more… proud. I suppose.

The badges are intended to be embedded in package README’s.

The colors are based on themes from the editor, on my main project page I have samples for three other themes.
