Badge Prototype

[Note: This has now shipped]

We’ve received requests for an Ohloh “badge” for people to host on their site. Something that would let projects show some very basic stats about their project yet small enough to not take up too much space/bandwidth. I’ve come up with a prototype:

ohloh badge

This example contains made-up numbers. It basically cycles through the calculator cost, lines of code and active developers (plus an ohloh plug). Before I make it generally available, I was wondering if anyone had any feedback. Some current concerns:

  • Is it too small to read?
  • Is the image’s size too big (current ~10k).
  • Are we missing or showing too many stats?
  • Is the animation too slow or too fast?

Either contribute to the thread below or send me mail with any feedback:
