I’m trying to follow the guide to create the “icon.svg” for one of my charms and I’m having problems.
The logo looks great in inkscape.
However, in charmuhub.io it looks nothing like it.
… The above… Yes, this is just weird and user-unfriendly:
It also looks crap in the juju dashboard, so no means to test the logo:
This happens to me all the time and the instructions are not up to date either with what actually goes on.
Also, there is no way to preview the work - so I have to go through a complete release cycle to test. E.g.
- edit the icon.svg
- charmcraft pack
- charmcraft upload
- charmcraft release
- reload charmhub (not knowing if it will cache previous images or not)
Since this process REQUIRES me to have a stable release, whats my option?
Also, consider this from a charm developers perspective. Spending hours and hours to get a nice looking logo, not getting it to work properly or getting stuck in a nasty upgrade/patch cycle with no means to test reliably the result, this, adds to a bad feeling about whole process of creating quality charms.
