Complete redesign of GNOME Shell's app picker
While the application view has evolved in 3.6 and 3.8, it still does not match the design mockup. Work to be done: -Applications should be paginated rather than scrolled -Make the transition gorgeous -Expose folder editing to users
- Popup never exceeds the app picker view, so there's not needed to navigate through the view to
search for an application. Also, now the popup or the close button of the popup is never cut off. (Note that when there's more items in the popup that don't fit, we add a scroll bar to the popup)
- The positioning of the popup is fixed in small resolutions where the popup was displaced.
- The items inside the popup are aligned with the main app picker view. That's itself an improvement, but this solve several bugs we have previously. i.e. Misposicioned popup in the x position when the width ofthe screen is big and the popup are in some corner position; arrow of the popup bad drawn in a similar situation; etc.
- Changing between resolutions makes the popup to adapts the new resolution.
- Now the icons reescale satisfying some minimums rows/columns requirements, making the overall experience better in small resolutions (like laptops, netbooks or tablets);
- Added some animations when opening folders, changing between pages, or the pages indicators itself.
- Added transitions to the overall app picker (i.e. when opening a popup, the icons now change its opacity in a transition)
- Pan action response reworked for better touch interactivity. Now instead of a smooth scrolling, we have something similar to the workspace switcher, but with a good touch response, taking into account
the velocity the user gives to the action.
- Icons style reworked to match overall gnome-shell and to make the label below icons more readable.
Since there are animations, a short video to see the changes:
