== Ubuntu Look ==

I felt that although functional, harvest needed a makeover, and so I chose to give it the theme of all the Ubuntu Sites. I chose this instead of a Launchpad theme, because Harvest at the moment is restricted to Ubuntu, but also there might be complications with misguiding users that this was launchpad etc.

To set up the theming of Harvest, I copied over the help.ubuntu.com css file & images and then set too work on the code. First I edited '''xhtml.py''' and added all the extra html above the actual content harvest produces. I then did the same for the footer of the page.

I also made the HACKING file look the same.

Apart from just changing the appearance, I also made one usability change. In you look at the screenshots at the end of this section, you can see that in the top-right hand corner, I created a (functional) search box. This allows a user to search for a package using the '''handler.py?pkg=PACKAGENAME''' syntax. This allows a user to search for a package a lot more easily than they currently can.
