More UI changes

Several mistakes later, I’ve nearly finished the first stage of UI changes. For now, it consists of a series of buttons that you can press to change the colors of the already existent interface. Next, I’m going to be adding the ability for the program to: Save which settings you’ve chosen; Add images as backgrounds for the overall UI; and a slider to change the background color and the text color more dynamically. After that, its on to additional graphing options/graphical representations of data. Because Olympus will be a program which you download onto your root and node servers, instead of one which is run on a central server, these changes will be affected in the file itself, so it should be relatively easy to save them permanently without use of a login screen or password.

Vacation Update

Greetings from vacation! I’ve made some more progress on user-customization of the Olympus UI. I’m currently working the bugs out of a few different themes that people can use to better personalize their Olympus experience. Unfortunately, this is probably the last time that I will have internet access before early next week, so the working code will probably go up then. I am also trying to work out a way to actually access the running Olympus front end from here (After all that I said about making it publicly addressable, it’s sitting behind the firewall at my apt. in Troy.) If I can do that, I’ll also be testing some new data visualization code that I’m working on (Line graphs and lines of best fit, woo hoo!)
