Bertrand Delacretaz commented on SLING-7242:
--------------------------------------------

I like it, thank you so much!

A few nitpicks:
 * The table of contents could be more compact for my taste, smaller font and line spacing
would help a lot probably, and bullet points are not really visually useful IMO (a la [https://www.edwardtufte.com/tufte/]
- I'm a fan ;)
 * The content takes much more vertical space than before, apparently mostly due to larger
line spacing
 * The tables feel much more important than the code visually, if I look at the "resource
path" / "Item path" table and the code block that follows
 * On Firefox 59.0.2 / macosx the left/right margins to go zero if I make the page narrower
than about 2400 pixels.

All nitpicks really, this looks way better than the current age-old site!

> As part of SLING-6666, it was mentioned the Sling website needs a re-design to help attract
new developers and make the site easier to use on mobile devices.
> Now that the site is on JBake, it probably makes sense to start working on this.
> The attached mockup is an initial take on the homepage. It's not meant to be all-encompassing,
but should provide a view into what the site could look like and how it could match the new
Sling Launchpad design.
> *Notes*
> * The image is pulled from Adobe Stock. Hopefully this can be donated, or we can pull
from the community to get an image we want to use. Was thinking "greenfield" and not overly
distracting.
> * I was looking for something punchy for the title text. "Effortlessly build resource-driven
web-applications." is what I came up with.
> * About text has been un-touched.
> * Easy build instructions are right on the homepage. Docker first, with Java just a tab
click away. This follows Docker now being the priority on the getting started page.
> * News, Get Involved, and Additional Resource should be mostly self-explanatory.
> * The navigation is designed around the common areas of the current left hand rail, but
with tutorials being broken out. This is a result of the many devs I've on-boarded that prefer
walk-throughs over raw docs.
> Overall the idea is to give a single page of the main topics, but kick out to the pages
already established.
> Let me know your thoughts.
