Color palettes for web developers

Web without colors ? Am I watching a black and white movie ? There are plenty of ways you can use colors. Most of the web UI designers have the palettes.

Codies like me always love to have minimal editors like VSCode / Atom / Sublim. There are plenty of website offer variety of palletes and gradient map.

One of my favorite is UI Gradient which let me choose between colors and gradients and simply copy the css to my web app .

The others in my list offer cool cool palettes and Canva is another favorite of mine

Create app launcher in Fedora

Fedora Linux is not meant for everyone, it is for developers and those who love to learn developing. You can add application using neat GUI or use dnf[treminal] to search and install packages you needed.

Some ventors supplies tar file which require manually run from terminal. For convenience you can create launchers for them, so that you can run them as regular applications.

Desktop Entries

Desktop entries are responsible for showing application menus under differrnt categories. My Fedora uses GNOME desktop which has Activities menu, shows favourietes and menus

Where should I place applications files

I recomment you should place application files on usr/share, you need to extract the tar/zip files on home folder then move to the share folder using following way In this example we have Typora Markdown Editor, extract the file and open terminal and issue following command

sudo mv Typora-linux-x64 /usr/share

This will place the typora file to the share folder, you can’t directly place or copy without sudo command in /share or application files

Desktop Entry format

create a Text file with named typora.desktopentry with following content

 [Desktop Entry]
Comment=A sample Markdown Editor
Exec=/usr/share/Typora-linux-x64/Typora %f 

Let’s move it to the /usr/share/applications/

sudo mv Ttypora.desktopentry /usr/share/applications

Now check the menu for the entry, I additionally added a image file for use as icon
