Editor for the current theme colors.

Spice up your Ambiences with this! Yes, Black/White/Gray colors can finally be created!

Source available at Gitlab. Patches and Translations (via Weblate) welcome!

Features:

  • allows setting most colors for the current theme. Note that this means you can not edit everything, most notably not the background color used for Covers
  • can store palettes for later reuse
  • translations ensure proper spelling of "color" in en_GB and en_IE locales
  • opens possibilities to create truly disgusting UI coloring, but de gustibus non est disputandum, eye of the beholder and so on.

Known issues:

  • plenty of rough edges, display and inputs get confused a lot depending on what you do
  • opens possibilities to create truly disgusting UI coloring, but de gustibus non est disputandum, eye of the beholder and so on.
  • can not (yet!) save colors to Ambiences, only current theme
  • Loading from Cupboard, or switching edit modes doesn't always keep the palette, showroom,  and the editors in sync. To work around, Apply to System and then Reload from System
  • can sometimes crash Lipstick... 
  • tragically uninspired name
  • ugly logo
  • plenty more, probably

 

If you like playing with colors and themes, you might like Ambience Admirer, my most pointless creation yet.

Oh, and if you like this, and are more talented than me in designing icons (likely), might I request a sailfish-like icon featuring the face of a Mantis Shrimp to be made for this? Thanks!
