I searched but didn’t find these specific requests or ideas or maybe these things are already possible and I don’t know how yet.
Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
Right now AnyType has three layouts for an object with the recurring items (cover, icon, title, …) in the header of the page.
Describe the solution you’d like
It would be nice if Layout became a Type in itself with the object having a header, footer, left and/or right sidebar that could contain any of these items as specific layout objects accompanied with other objects. If we look ahead to publishing objects or just styling them, you would create much more templating and/or theming possibilities focused on the style of AnyType.
Adding to this:
- The Cover could be a simple image object or a sliding set of images or a dynamical image from a certain category in Unsplash or … . Detailed in Set of images as a cover
- The Cover Icon could be linked to a certain relation f.e. showing an updated icon based upon a status or a certain theme. Detailed in Cover icon linked to relation
- The Dashboard as a one of a kind object in itself could have layouts as well, giving the freedom to build our own dashboard with dashboard objects. Wallpaper could use the same objects as the cover on regular objects. Detailed in Dashboard as a Type with Layouts
- Although the graph is amazing, a hierarchy might come in handy as well. Looking ahead to publishing objects, you could have a hierarchy object (f.e. website linked to a domain served from AnyType or the sidebar) with an object possibly linked or referenced to other parents-objects in this hierarchy.
