Improving the quickstart Welcome Page

Let's see if we make the quickstart welcome page even more helpful and cool.

Feel free to edit this page and improve it.

Maybe (I don't know) Kevin will like the new page and consider it for inclusion in the 0.9 release.

Comments

On replacing the logo with a locally-hosted one: one reason I can imagine Kevin wouldn't want to do this is that he can gauge the number of TG installs by the number of hits on this image.

So far, I don't see anything more helpful about this change.

The default welcome page uses this logo (at the top):

 http://www.turbogears.org/tgheader.png

what about using this one instead (at the bottom and linked to the TurboGears site)?

http://trac.turbogears.org/turbogears/file/trunk/turbogears/static/images/tg_power.png?rev=99&format=raw

is nicer and already distribited with TurboGears (is used by CatWalk) so that you don't need to fetch it from the web every time.

New Welcome Page

Congratulations, your TurboGears application is running as of Tue Nov 8 18:21:41 2005
    
Are you ready to Gear Up?
   
Take the following steps to dive in:

    1. Edit your project's model.py to create SQLObjects representing the data you're working with
    2. Edit your dev.cfg file to point to the database you'll be using
    3. Run "tg-admin sql create" to create the tables in the database
    4. Edit controllers.py to add the functionality to your webapp
    5. Change the master.kid template to have the headers and footers for your application.
    6. Change this template or create a new one to display your data
    7. Repeat steps 4-6 until done.
    8. Profit!
    
If you haven't already, you might check out some of the documentation.
