As part of the upcoming birthday celebrations, I’d like to expand the timeline: https://fsfe.org/timeline/
Currently this view is mainly an SVG. Although I like it from a technological standpoint, it isn’t practical to use on a mobile device (tiny fonts and no hovers) and is a pain to update or translate (required updating the SVG and aligning things properly).
So before I start creating more content, I’d like to redo the page itself. My main goal is to get it into plain HTML again.
Considering that there is only limited width on a mobile device, I don’t think it is feasible to maintain the current 4 columns (internal, policy, legal, public). I like the categories, so perhaps icons can help distinguish these categories (🤝, 🏛️, ⚖️, 📣). These icons could of course be custom-made, similar to the ones on https://fsfe.org/contribute/contribute.html
To avoid having to scroll endlessly, I can think of three UI improvements:
- Table of contents by year or something to jump easily.
- Filter events, based on category. This could even be expanded to having country-specific history appear on the timeline based on a switch.
I’d like to pick your brain. What do you think about this?
