The challenge is to generate an image similar to the StackOverflow logo:

The output must contain:

  • Image size 64*64 or greater
  • A gray |__| shaped base
  • A curved segmented stack coming up from the base. The segments will fade from gray to orange, and make a ~90 degree right turn. The number of segments should be between 5 and 7, with 6 being preferred.

Note: For ascii displays that lack color, use a '0' character to represent gray, and '9' for orange. '1' to '8' would represent the shades in-between.

Restrictions:

  • You must generate the image. Loading images or storing them in the code/binary is not allowed.

Additional rules/information:

  • The image is not required to be identical to the logo, however it must be recognizable as it.
  • The method of display is up to you. Saving it to an image file or displaying on the screen are both acceptable.

Judging/winning criteria:

  • Accuracy of the image is the primary condition
  • Elegance of generation is the secondary condition

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

    The official 16x16 px version of the logo actually has only 4 bars in the stack. – Ilmari Karonen Jan 8 '12 at 12:06

    I'm not sure what it was like in 2012, but by today's standards this is not an objective winning criterion. I guess the best fix (which also wouldn't affect the winner), would be to turn this into a popularity-contest and move the judging criteria to voting guidelines. – Martin Ender Feb 28 '15 at 12:47
  • @IlmariKaronen I count SIX. Also, that's 32x32px. – mbomb007 Sep 18 '15 at 1:21

I decided to prettify my answer after realizing this isn't code golf. Whoops!

Javascript (650)

I wrote a quine that reads the characters in the function, and replaces non-space characters with a number from 0-9.

(function a(){
l=[
                   1,
                    1,
            11,      1,
             11,     1,
               11,    1,
       11,      11,   1,
         11,      11,
           11,
   11,       1111,
     1111,
0,       11111111, 0,
0, 11,             0,
0,   111111111111, 0,
0,                 0,
0, 11111111111111, 0,
0,                 0,
000000000000000000000]

b=a.toString().split("[")[1].split("]")[0].split(""),i=-1
document.getElementById("output").innerHTML=
b.map(function(c){
++i
if(c==" "||c=="\n")return c
if(c!=0)c=9-Math.floor((i/b.length)*10)
if(b[i-1]=="0")c=0
return"<span class='c"+c+"'>"+c+"</span>"
}).join("")
})()

This outputs this ASCII art:

                   99
                    88
            888      88
             777     77
               766    66
       666      666   66
         555      555
           555
   444       44444
     44444
00       333333333 00
00 333             00
00   2222222222222 00
00                 00
00 111111111111111 00
00                 00
000000000000000000000

which can be colored with a css stylesheet if you like

  span{
    font-weight: bold;
  }
  .c0, .c1{
    color: #222;
  }
  .c2{
    color: #765;
  }
  .c3{
    color: #976;
  }
  .c4{
    color: #A64;
  }
  .c6, .c5{
    color: #D51;
  }
  .c8, .c9, .c7{
    color: #F60;
  }

SVG (347 characters)

Based on Sir_Lagsalot's version, with strokes instead of fills. Besides shaving off a few chars, the code is simpler and the output looks better scaled up.

Rendered to PNG (at natural size and scaled up x2 and x3):

Natural size     Scaled up x2     Scaled up x3

Edit: Finally got around to fixing the off-by-one error that caused the sides of the box not to line up. Also tweaked the line thickness and end point placement a bit, and added explicit width and height to avoid the bottom and right edges being cropped too tight. It now looks a lot closer to the official logo.

Haskell w/Gloss

import Graphics.Gloss

picture = translate 0 (-50) $ pictures [stack, base 150 60 20]

stack = translate 0 30 $ pictures [item n | n <- [0..5]]

item n = bend 200 (-10*n) $ color (fade grey orange (n/5)) box
  where box = rectangleSolid 110 20

base width height thickness = color grey $ pictures [left, right, bottom]
  where bottom = rectangleSolid width thickness
        left = translate (width / 2) (height / 2) side
        right = translate (-width / 2) (height / 2) side

        side = rectangleSolid thickness (height + thickness)

bend radius angle = translate radius 0 . rotate angle . translate (-radius) 0

fade from to alpha = mixColors (1-alpha) alpha from to

grey = greyN 0.5

Paste the code here to see it in action, or add the following line to compile it (requires Gloss).

main = display (InWindow "Stack Overflow" (512, 512) (10, 10)) white picture

About the approach was basically trial & error as I was too lazy to do the math. Would've been better to use concentric circles or even better concentric ellipses to get the positions of the stacks. – elssar Jan 10 '12 at 7:05

I know I'm super late to the game here, but I was surprised no one did a CSS version of this. This is definitely not a competitive answer when it comes to character count (1,195) but the final product is pretty accurate.

    Use variable functions: $a = 'imagecolorallocate';$r = 'imagefilledrectangle'; $p = 'imagefilledpolygon'; which allows you to reduce the code substantially: $p(...);$p(...);.... – Xeoncross Aug 29 '12 at 18:41

JavaScript + jQuery & SVG - 250

$('body').html('<svg><g stroke-width="6" fill="none"$grey" d="m3,51v31h47V53M10,70h33"/$#a86" d="m10,57 33,3"/$#b95" d="m13,42 31,9"/$#c82" d="m20,25 28,17"/$#e80" d="m34,9 19,27"/$#f71" d="m56,1 4,32"/></g></svg>'.replace(/\$/g, '><path stroke="'))​

I took Ilmari Karonen's SVG and used JavaScript to replace $s with ><path stroke=" effectively shortening it even with the overhead of JavaScript.

R

Not the prettiest solution but it returns the requested output.

library(grid)
my.palette <- colorRampPalette(c("grey57","orange"))(6)
png("StackOverflow_Logo.png", width=300, height=300)
pushViewport(viewport(x=0.5, y=0.5, w=unit(100, "points"), h=unit(100, "points")))
grid.polygon(x=unit(c(10, 0, 0, 100, 100, 90, 90, 10),"points"), 
             y=unit(c(50, 50, 0, 0, 50, 50, 10, 10),"points"),
             default.units="points", gp=gpar(col = "grey57", fill="grey57"))
grid.rect(vp=viewport(x=0.5, y=0.3, w=unit(70, "points"), h=unit(10, "points")), 
          gp=gpar(col = "grey57", fill="grey57"))
