Finally, Our Stretch Goals!
It's been a crazy couple of weeks and we're still amazed by the amount of support you have given us. We can't thank you enough. We took some time (OK, a lot of time) to put together some stretch goals. We're pretty confident that we'll hit at least half of these goals, which is exciting! In the coming days, we'll be talking more about some of these ideas to try to communicate why we think they're so valuable. Without any further ado, here they are!
$40,000: Icon themes
All of Iconic's icons can be styled with CSS, but we'd like to make it so that you can style all of them by simply adding a CSS file. This is a big deal because it allows your icons to have radically different aesthetics based on your needs. Through our research, we've figured out that making all the icons theme-ready would take considerably more work to do right. If we reach $40,000, we'll make this happen. We'll create three pre-made themes for you to use and more importantly, we'll show you how to theme Iconic on your own.
$50,000: Super-duper documentation
You're already going to get a great collection of documentation, but at this level we'll be able to make it much better. If we reach this goal, you'll be getting screencasts, interactive demos and even more code samples. We know documentation isn't the most sexy stretch goal in the world, but we really think you'll appreciate it.
$60,000: Web component icons
Web components are where the web is headed and we have some pretty awesome ideas as to how we could make icons work with web components. Imagine adding an icon to the screen with all the features Iconic is bringing—by adding a single HTML tag to your code. That would obviously be a big deal! However, web components are still in flux and in the process of being defined. This part of the project will take considerable research and even more documentation.
$70,000: A web GUI for Iconic's toolkit
This is the most obvious and most ambitious project to take on. We know some of you aren't too stoked with using the command line and we'd like to make all our tools accessible through a web interface. It would be awesome, but it's no small undertaking. We have a lot of thoughts on this subject and we'll start to share them with you when/if we get closer to this stretch goal.
Thanks again everyone!
