Skin Development!

#42

Ok, I heard back from cuu.
I’m fixing the last hard-coded colors now.

I’ll add them to the pull request and hopefully everyone can have their beautiful colors on every page
:slight_smile:


#43

I saw an above mention about animation for the music player or the UI.

If any developers need or want to implement code with animation, let me know. I do motion graphics & animation and would be more then willing to contribute.


#44

My latest changes for skinning were included in the 1.22 update.
Please let me know if anyone sees any areas of the UI which aren’t themed


#45

Thanks for all the work you’ve done on this! I’ll gdt the additions added to my themes in the next few days.
Any idea where I can find these new additions, or what their called? I’m guessing they were added as options to the config.cfg file?
I’ll dig through the code when I’ve got some time.


#46

yup yup, “Disabled” and “Black” were added as colors to customize.
Here’s the complete list:

    Colors["High"] = pygame.Color(51, 166, 255)
    Colors["Text"] = pygame.Color(83, 83, 83)
    Colors["Front"] = pygame.Color(131, 199, 219)
    Colors["URL"] = pygame.Color(51, 166, 255)
    Colors["Line"] = pygame.Color(169, 169, 169)
    Colors["TitleBg"] = pygame.Color(228, 228, 228)
    Colors["Active"] = pygame.Color(175, 90, 0)
    Colors["Disabled"] = pygame.Color(204, 204, 204)
    Colors["White"] = pygame.Color(255, 255, 255)
    Colors["Black"] = pygame.Color(0, 0, 0)

We may want to start thinking about having the option for the UI to specify more granular colors with defaults.
ie: we could have a more specific color option like “MusicPlayer_Spectrum_BackgroundColor” with the default of “Black” if that value isn’t specified.

Those tapedeck Screenshots from earlier, are these from the OP-1?


#48

Yup that’s right, made a gif that loops for pygame library for the player,

i updated my skin, but still can’t get many of the colors to work.

@follower46 is your list supposed to be working with the 1.21 launcher, or do i need another version?

my config.cfg looks like this

[Colors]
High = #13ad3e		  # ???
Text = #ff6bda		  # Title bar text color (current selection and clock)
Front = #13ad3e		  # ???
URL = #13ad3e	      # ???
Line = #ffb2eb		  # border color of top and bottom title bar
TitleBg = #fdeef8	  # background color of top title bar
Active = #13ad3e	  # ???
Disabled = #13ad3e	  # ???
White = #fdeef8		  # launcher background color
Black = #13ad3e		  # ???

Only the four colors i added a description to seem to change anything in the launcher. Help with filling the ???s also would be appreciated :wink:

Uh, sorry - you answered that part already. 1.22 is not available through the update function, how can it be installed?
