Start9 is a modular, extensible Shell supplement for windows. Still in its early stages of development currently, and we need all the help we can get to make this happen.

More info here: http://start9.menu/

Strange, It just so happens that I am working on a similar project called Atelerix-Shell. It is still in the works of course. I am using C++. I began working on the project back in November. If you want to check it out, you can find it here.

Thanks, captain obvious. We haven't even started on making it look nice, I'm just showing that it (mostly) works .-.

EDIT: Sorry, that came out a lot more hostile than I'd intended. Guess I should've clarified in the post about it. Sorry about that :/

It's nice to see people actually trying to create a good Explorer replacement. Hopefully this goes somewhere.





• Nadia: makes her BQFX file an AJ7
• SuperHackio: questions what that is
<~StapleButter> the AJ7 is an automatic rifle model based on the well-known AK47

...do they normally only create bad explorer replacements or something? .-.

Experimenting with detecting dominant colours in icons. Inspired by this post on /r/Windows10.

Looking good! You could reduce the lag it takes when hovering over, though.

Agreed. I'd sort of just thrown that together at the time, so it's not surprising that some fine-tuning is needed. I guess I should note that the slowness isn't lag, but a fading animation that...perhaps plays a bit too slowly.

I appreciate the feedback, and I'll be sure to keep this thread updated when stuff happens.

Just messing with different layouts and such. Thoughts? (Taskbar shown is from Explorer btw)

Windows 7 doesn't seem to calculate a dominant color or whatever, but rather pick a color from the bottom part of the taskbar icon...?

Really? Huh...my understanding was that it did pull the dominant colour from the icon...at the very least, Windows Media Player proves that it isn't taken straight from the bottom of the icon, specifically - the bottom of that icon is blue, yet the glow is orange, like the ring around the center of the icon.


Also more progress on the thing from above:
