I have had some free time lately, so I have been playing with animated png files.
Maybe one day dmenu will support apng and we will be able to use these...
Neat idea, but I tend to think that a full set of animated icons would raise DMenu's loading time significantly. For example, toddler's icons are all about 4k each, while your Open Liero one is 178k. They do look cool however.
Yeah I know it would kill load time if all icons were animated... I was thinking just some and maybe only animate when in focus, but it is still a strain on limited resources. just a thought... ( just wanted to show off Open Liero one
Open Lieros 178k is the only big one, power manga is only 11k and if I worked on them I could reduce file size quite a lot, as I have used a very inefficient animation method. cant do anything until dmenu supports apng anyway.
had a quick play with power manga icon and reduced it to 8.12k from 11k, not much, but it is only three frames...
now 4.54k from 10.3k... down to two frames. (doesn't look as good...)
Not going to try that on Open Lieros 48 frames... would drive me nuts (dont think it would work anyway)
