I suggest you ...

Add uploadable project icons

It would be great to have icons for projects like the icons on the groups that are recently added to GL.

You could add the app-icon of a mobile app to the project to have a fast visible distinction between the projects.

These icons should be shown in front of the group and project names everywhere in gitlab (Dashboard, Project list, etc..)

        Hi Steven,

        Thanks for commenting. I hope your family member will be OK. <3 from us.

        You've given a lot to GitLab already, don't stress about the PR. If other people want it they can always fork it and improve it.

        I understand that it takes too long.
        Due to sickness in my close family I cannot find the time besides my work to get this done.
        When I pick it up it takes a lot of time to get my dev environment up to date and rebase the code.

        Please feel free to help out.
        I believe most / all ui issues have been resolved and it just needs some TLC.

        What's the current state of this feature integration? It's kind of weird to read that it already took more than half a year to integrate this feature, which was already in a working version available.

        Great idea! Maybe if no project icon exists, it can default to the group icon if it's in a group?

        I really love this idea! good work Steven!

        It would be great to have the same feature (auto-generated avatar) on profile's picture, removing the need to check Gravatar on the internet.

        Should I create another "I suggest you" ?

        Steven, it is very colorful but we don't mind. Maybe keep it as simple as possible for now. But feel free to experiment.

      • Steven TSteven T commented  · 

        I will cleanup my code and push this today or this weekend.
        What colors do you prefer?
        It is now automatically calculated, but this can be a bit too colorful.

      • Steven TSteven T commented  · 

        it is possible to let GL automatically choose from a few colors dependent on the project.
        The main goal is to have different icons for all projects even when they start with the same letter.

        I do not like this colorful letter buttons. I would prefer the style of the other default icons. simple gray with a white character

      • GitLab teamAdminGitLab team (Admin, Gitlab) commented  · 

        Hi Steven, we discussed this and wanted to provide some feedback. As indicated before we not sure about the whole idea but there are also some practical obstacles:

        1. In the current implementation the UI alignment is broken.
        2. This need to be tested on multiple devices, for example when a project name is the maximum length the current implementation is distorted.
        3. Not everyone has nice default icons that differ per project. Maybe we can show these people the first letter of the project as a workaround. But for example for us many projects start with a G. (not showing the icon will mean that testing the layout will become harder in the future because you have two scenarios, so that is no option either)

      • boeserwolf91boeserwolf91 commented  · 

        +1 for this feature. I would like to have it.
        @Steven: thanks for this

      • Steven TSteven T commented  · 

        @ciro: this is also included in the PR.
        pushing the new logo updates it. :-)
