Just a thought. Perhaps we can have skins for the IDE ;)

Personally don't care for skins.
Instead of why not, why would i want skins? :)

Pracas, maybe something like this would suit you?



Woooo!  I got the image tags to work!


(that sketch is for displaying an animated smiley on an led matrix by the way)



But seriously, if you look under (on a mac) Arduino/contents/resources/Java/lib/theme you can find gifs for parts of the window, along with a text file for colors and things!

There should be a folder in the IDE directory that has all the images from the UI (e.g. the buttons). If you were dying for some customizing, you could change the color scheme yourself by editing these files in photoshop/gimp/whatever and then perhaps share your results with the rest of us

Erm, exactly like what I said?

oops. Indeed just like you said. Must've jumped over your post.

sciguy

Nah it's okay.

It was sorta hidden below the big photo I posted anyway.

Mowcius approves of this idea  ;D

I might have to fiddle with mine. If I get any alternate icons sorted out then I will post them somewhere.

One thing to NOT try:

Background fill color (whatever it is called in the theme.txt) : ffff00
Text color:  0000ff

Not visually pleasing!!!!

-1 for IDE skins. I think it would add useless bloat to IDE code.

It would be minor so I doubt it would affect people who don't care for it.

I have no idea what it would take to implement a "skinnable" IDE. As long as it doesn't slow down the IDE nor decreases its stability, it's ok with me.
