Themes for Ardour, Zrythm, Audacity, etc.

Post by LAM »

I published on Gitlab two themes, one for Ardour and one for Zrythm: https://gitlab.com/lam604/audiothemes

They are both based on the Open Color open source color scheme: https://yeun.github.io/open-color/

Any feedback is appreciated. :D

Screenshots:

Hello, thanks! I suggest you to include the screenshots in the Gitlab README. Also to try to open a merge request for both programs - who knows, maybe one of them will include it :D

Yeah, it is in my plans, just getting accustomed to gitlab and need a bit of free time to get things organized.

For Zrythm, @alextee already knows, hope it will be included in https://github.com/zrythm/zrythm-media soon. :D

For Ardour i would wait for some peple to test it, before submitting.

As side note: I was thinking of making a MusE theme too, but i found the values are in the rgb( r, g, b) format, not very friendly...

Your ardour theme works in 5.12 as well. Nice improvement.

Since you like theming, how about doing MusE as well? The devs read this forum :D

Woah, sorry, missed that! You can use # colors and I can convert them to you into RGB if you want :D

If there is a way to use color "variables" in the. qss file things should be easier, instead of specifying the exact color value for each element. Also the .cfc file in that format:

Code: Select all

<palette0 r="255" g="255" b="255"></palette0>
:evil:
would make me spend a lot of time figuring out what colors are in there, but i guess the palette could be defined manually and saved inside MusE.

Just a little rant about how devs manage colors: just use variables of let's say 16 colors + foreground + background, and use them to assign colors to different elements would make theming/skinning much more easier...

Not that I know of but this solution kinda works. Or try https://pypi.org/project/qtsass/

Very nice work!

If you post and mention it at the Ardour forum I'm almost certain they will snap it up in no time!

Wow @LAM looks great! It should be the default Dark Theme on MusE IMHO!
