This is one of my favourite pieces of software on the homeserver, providing me with content on train commutes. Since there's a new version of Ubooquity, I thought I'd do two things
- Donate to keep the project running.
- Adapt my own personal theme to the new version and share it for others to use
I've put together a darker theme that is esthetiqually pleasing to me, but I don't make any claim that this is a theme for everyone. I haven't put it through usability trials across different devices and screen resolutions, so there might be some bugs - but report them back to me and I'll make a reasonable effort to keep people happy.
The main differences from the default theme:
# Modern CSS3 usage. Deleted some of the old code which is now failing checks. Added some new tricks instead.
# Darkish background - easier on the eyes.
# Navigational Icons are largely replaced by embedding awesomefont -> lower theme size, more responsive at the cost of some loading time. This is mostly a change to make it easier to prototype other theme changes.
# Category Icons are now photorealistic instead of pictograms at a cost of a higher filesize, typical 6kb vs 30kb.
# Added persistant logout and home buttons in top menu -> More uniform behaviour
