Cerium - A dynamic E17 theme.

Back into it, this is the Cerium theme for Enlightenment 17. Most themes to date have used images that are static and stuck in one appearance. Cerium is a dynamic theme, in that it uses a minimal amount of images, and also uses 'color_classes' to control the color tint of images. For a full rundown of the code used, visit me newly established blog @ [link] for most info.

Also, since it uses color_classes, the user can set the background alpha color to semi-transparent and use a composite manager for glass effects and the like. Its a highly flexible theme, and will become more flexible when I revise it and add more color_classes.

For now, enjoy the feel of Cerium. I recommend adding a nice background to it and setting the transparency on.

Are you talking about the Black & white ( b_and_w ) theme , in trunk ?

Damn , must learning EFL , EWL & others : already have some UI ideas

Yes, in e/trunk/THEMES/b_and_w/
Just run 'make && make install' in the dir. We even have a new build system for it :)

Thx for your work : the code is easy to understand and the theme himself is just beautifull !

I hope a "simplistic icons theme" will be created to match your theme : like the icons in the WM menu ( minimise , stick on desktop , etc )

The future is here !

ps : sry for my english ;)

Thanks :) Im currently working with raster on a new default theme for E17. We're making it good looking, but also easy to modify and re-theme. Once Ive finished that (and its going to take a while), Ill be jumping back in to my other themes to make them better! :)

Thanks dude! It was good fun making Cerium. When I first tested the background to go transparent, I was over the moon. And yeh, I do hope other themers pick up this little technique!
