#614 Infographics for a marketing campaign
Closed: Fixed 2 years ago by duffy. Opened 2 years ago by x3mboy.

phenomenon

We need help with a template for people to create easy, nice and understandable tips and info about cool stuff to do in Fedora.

reason

The marketing team wants to run a weekly (or bi-weekly) campaign possibly called #FedoraThusdayTips

recommendation

We want to publish in social media, like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter
Feedback for the campaign on https://pagure.io/fedora-marketing/issue/277


@x3mboy please give us more detail about the infographics you'd like created:

  • which media it will go to
  • how big the image should be
  • how many parts there will be to it
  • lastly, if you have any examples in mind of what would be illustrated

It will inform our decision, if this can really be structured into a template.

Also, it can be hard to coordinate works of several teams and release this weekly. Bi-weekly or monthly sounds more realistic, in my opinion. But then again, it depends on what exactly you's like to have created.

@mleonova thanks for your guide on this. Answering some of your questions:

Please let me know what do you think about it.

Are there any feedback on this?

@x3mboy smtg like this is really hard to structure without sample content. do you have any?

Hello Design Team,

also We have some a "subprojects" topic, Always solving the question What is and what do they do?

will be great if our first infographic will be about the design team :heartpulse:

Hey, we're happy to design an infographic / template but we really need some content to start working on this.

Strategically Im not sure design team is the best place to start; I love the list of topics @x3mboy posted (although Id replace docker with cri-o, and we can use the cri-o super hero snowboarding girl mascot in the design!)

If you wanna start with that one first that would be great. We just need the script / content.

we understand, cri-o sounds awesome too (maybe for the next round), but we note than the content of podman tutorial is good and their mascot is also cute.

wdyt? it's fine for the first infographic?

I think the podman tutorial is great but removing the Ubuntu content xD

@bt0dotninja that sounds fine to me, is someone working on adapting and simplifying the content for an infographic?

Podman

Podman is a utility provided as part of the libpod library. It can be used to create and maintain containers. The following infographic will teach you how to set up Podman and perform some basic commands with Podman.

Installation

$ sudo dnf install -y podman

Running a basic container

This is a basic container with httpd (Apache) and will run in detached mode. The output will be the container ID:

sudo podman run -dt -e HTTPD_VAR_RUN=/var/run/httpd \
                    -e HTTPD_MAIN_CONF_D_PATH=/etc/httpd/conf.d \
                    -e HTTPD_MAIN_CONF_PATH=/etc/httpd/conf \
                    -e HTTPD_CONTAINER_SCRIPTS_PATH=/usr/share/container-scripts/httpd/ \
                    registry.fedoraproject.org/f27/httpd /usr/bin/run-httpd

Listing running containers

$ sudo podman ps

Note: If you add -a to the ps command, Podman will show all containers.

Inspecting a running container

$ sudo podman inspect -l | grep IPAddress

Note: The -l is convenience arguement for latest container. You can also use the container's ID instead of -l.

Testing the httpd server

$ curl http://<IP_address>:8080

Viewing the container's logs

$ sudo podman logs --latest

Viewing the container's pids

$ sudo podman top <container_id>

Stopping the container

$ sudo podman stop --latest

Removing the container

$ sudo podman rm --latest

More information

For more information on Podman and its subcommands, checkout the libpod github page.

@bt0dotninja @duffy This is a super short version I've edited. WDYT?

awesome, i :heartpulse: it

Hi team. Any news on this?

@x3mboy -- I'd love to work on this. I like the outline and appreciate the examples. Also, I've been looking into containers for my own interest anyway and this will give me a good excuse to do a deeper dive for better understanding.

@duffy if you could point me to the SVG's of the graphics that have already been created (I'm thinking of the comic book graphics) I'll try to get some ideas going if everyone is okay with that.

@kylerconway go, tiger!

This is the first one, so there is nothing already created, this will give you some freedom to work on.

@x3mboy and all,

Here's a partial of what I've been thinking, based on my understanding of the request. I do have some thoughts/questions for discussion:

Fedora association
Is the use of the Fedora wallpaper wanted for this? The colors are nice and related to podman, but I'm open to hearing podman needs to be totally separate and not use the Fedora wallpaper.

Conceptual Visual Focus
The examples provided have somewhat different objectives than podman (at present), which allowed for a more obvious visual design from the start (i.e. in one case "FEATURES --> BENEFITS", and in the other numerical data to be shared in graph form).

At the moment -- see below image -- I'm thinking of just creating a small graphic to highlight the relevant step in the process (e.g. disk), and emphasizing the code needed to complete the step in a pullout box. I'm open to suggestions on this as I'm more used to developing infographics with data or comparisons than with procedural steps (though I'd also be happy to hear that the below approach seems to work well).

Text Truncation
I'll likely be adjusting text (particularly for the header directions -- i.e. "Running a Basic Container" to "Run Container"). I'm hoping this is acceptable. I also added a line break in the first line of code for "Run Container" to better fit the width request. I haven't tested the code yet but believe it should be valid as depicted.

Feedback on any and all welcome and appreciated!

Quick Draft Image

issue-614-a.png

Reading back through the original request (for a template), most of the stated items are really just step-by-step guides, so perhaps this is on the right track. I will say that for most people starting out it's more inviting to follow a designed step-by-step guide than a README file. We'll likely want to provide a link to the README on the visual guide (for easier copy/pasting if desired).

hey @kylerconway - thanks for picking up this ticket!

Podman is independent of Fedora, but I still think it's probably OK to use the F29 wallpaper, it is open license artwork and it does go really well with the podman colors.

The podman logo typeface is actually Montserrat medium, i think what you've got there is the normal or thin version. Attached is a version with the correct weight that is converted to paths. I also threw in an extra alternative seal illustration that might be useful.

Anyhow, I'd avoid Comfortaa for the headings and play with Montserrat. I really love allcaps Montserrat in semi-bold or bold, just generally for headlines.

Also in terms of the design, layout, here's some inspiration -

Rebel Labs Docker Cheatsheet
http://files.zeroturnaround.com/pdf/zt_docker_cheat_sheet.pdf

I like how they incorporated a diagram into it and I think it would help here.


Docker Cheatsheet
https://ma.ttias.be/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/docker_cheat_sheet.png

I like how the commands are categorized into build / ship / run categories


Docker Commands Cheatsheet
https://i1.wp.com/caylent.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Docker-Commands-Cheat-Sheet.png?resize=1024%2C791&ssl=1

Again I like the categorization of commands. I also like the diagram for how the command line works.

This is just a random idea - what if the commands were broken into cards and each card was the butt end of a shipping container like in this photo? Just some brain food.

@x3mboy -- still working on a different idea. Trying to incorporate comments from @duffy (which will make it less of a template, but stronger in theme). Hope to get another variation up this weekend. :smiley:

Before I take this too far I figure I'll seek some feedback. The layout is not correct yet, but do we think something like this might work?

@kylerconway looks good! the typography is spot on.

Awesome @kylerconway ,

Looks great, maybe we can fill the spaces with a little text about what podman is and to developer.fpo (or another Fedora related sites)

Maybe I'm a little annoying, but: is there a chance that we can use a monospaced typography/font/typeface for commands? For the rest, I'm all in, the colors, the containers, the distribution, everything looks awesome

@x3mboy -- That's a good point. I'll make those changes!

@bt0dotninja -- Thanks! If you have any recommendations for that would be great!

podman does not need sudo permissions to run containers. I think it would be good to get someone to review the commands before publishing it.

Maybe @dwalsh can help here

@cverna, the commands were taken from the podman's site That's why we didn't ask for a review. And

@cverna, the commands were taken from the podman's site That's why we didn't ask for a review. And

Ah ok, I am just surprised since one of the main talking point of podman is that you can use it without sudo. I think it might be worth double checking on that

@cverna, Sure, I would love to have a tech review. @dwalsh can you take a look at it?

@bt0dotninja @kylerconway Massive +1 to this. Once we have a tech review about it, we are going to publish.

@duffy @mleonova I want to create several infographics. Should I create a ticket per infographic? I think it will be easier to track for me, but I will let you to decide how to follow.

@x3mboy -- I'll defer to @duffy & @mleonova , but I suspect separate tickets would be good. While I think the initial was for a "template" that might have worked for anything, the reality is that these will all likely be different enough that separate tickets would probably be good (though I'd love to be involved in more of them). Also, additional design feedback appreciated here. :)

@cverna / @dwalsh -- please do see if this is accurate. Per the "sudo" comment, it seems that we might go with a different example (or even layout) to highlight that feature (which I believe is touted in the README, but not obvious here from the commands or the design).

If the objective shifts to highlighting the unique features of podman (vs. other container tools/workflows) I'd like to revisit this (or consider a separate piece). Depending on the marketing you're doing, it might be good to have a series of things highlighting the non-sudo benefit of the tool.

Thanks all!

I've run a test and I can confirm that sudo it's not needed in the podman commands, only with the dnf install command

@x3mboy -- okay. So we'll remove the sudo from everything but the install command then?

@duffy -- were you going to send the one-color version of the podman logo in svg? If so, I'll add that as well.

Thanks!

@kylerconway Yes, remove the sudo from the commands

  • I think using a good fedora design cheatsheet is a good idea.
  • A free 3D model for Docker can be found https://free3d.com/3d-model/container-v2--890776.html and with some changes will have a new and good design (maybe render parts like the example of @x3mboy).
  • I am not adept at using images on the internet because of the obvious problem: the "deja-vu" effect.

That's actually a good idea, but doesn't fit into the target: infographics

@x3mboy how are we doing with this one?

@x3mboy @duffy

If there's anything else I should do here please do let me know!
