Visual effects theme: Alienware
« on: October 27, 2012, 03:51:21 am »
I've got this awesome idea:

If there would be a sort of beta version of Code::Blocks with visual effects going on while programming,I think that would be really cool.
Though it isn't a requirement for programming and functionality itself,though I imagine a lot of people would want to use it for the cool effects,and maybe a lot of people who haven't programmed before would then see it and go "That is so cool!I wanna learn how to use it!".

The approximate theme I had in mind is something like Alienware.For instance having the background black, and when Code::Blocks starts,that it tones into view maybe.
And when for example you type "int number;",the "int"(or double,float,whatever syntax you wanna use) will start to have a sort of blurry light-blue glow gradually appear after a while,emitting from it,on the black background.And when you erase a whole line of code in one go,that it dissolves like sand being carried off in the wind - those sorts of things.

Anybody else think this would be a cool alternative?

Personally no, but of course you can provide patches - that's what open source projects are all about.
