Gela - Simple, Clean, Beauty, Gnome shell theme (3.6.*)
(Possible errors, please let me know)

Looking at the abundance of dark themes for Gnome shell, I always wanted to try to create their own theme based on bright colors. I took as a basis for three themes.
I love the minimalism and clear lines.
This is what I strive to create this theme.

I would be glad if someone else will like my work. Use, modify ... and comment.

Sorry, for my bad english...

This is an alternative to the default GNOME Shell theme. Features the following changes.

At high resolutions like 1920x1080 and above the fonts will be small. A good font hinting setting and anti-aliasing setting like Rgba will really help.

THIS IS ONLY FOR 3.6




Hello,

eOS is a GNOME Shell theme that gives your GNOME desktop an 'Elementary' feel.

I ported a lot of features from DanRabbit's mockups and actual eOS parts, like: Plank, Pantheon Shell, Wing Panel... My goal is to make the most accurate Elementary theme.


Known Bugs

- None. But I would appreciate it if actual elementary users compared this theme and their eOS to see if something is off. I want to have a 1:1 clone. :)
