- GTK app window which contains the element(s) of which you want to change the look (I wanted to change the link color in Firefox’ UI, in this case “See All Recommended Add-ons”)
- gtk-theme-switch2 [AUR] which allows you to apply a theme to all existing windows with the press of “Apply”
- Two editor windows, one with the theme that you work on, one with the theme that you learn from
What you have to do is the following: install some themes, then switch between them until you find one that changes something you want to change. Then open this theme’s file and learn how it does what you want to do. Repeat. Use the theme switch to constantly test your changes.
PS: Zenburn woot!

I made a mood board (inspired by Durian) for DungeonHack. Mood boards are a place for quickly post images you think are cool. Videos too. Whether or not this one will be used needs to be discussed first.
A good mood board should follow following rules:
1. It is hosted by somebody else, who is reliable, so the images don’t get lost and you don’t have to take care of anything.
2. Multiple users can post.
3. It looks simple (dark background, little space between images).
4. The embedded image needs to be large enough to see it. The option to increase the size should be there, but one should also be able to see everything by simply moving on the page, without opening new links to full size images. This is important for the ‘quick’ aspect of mood boards. They are for creating a mood through multiple inspirational graphics, not the details matter most, but the resulting mood from looking at all images.
Tumblr has a 15 images per page limit, which might be annoying, but it is so easy and quick to set up, every project should have such a thing, if not every developer of a project. The different mood boards could then be combined in a Soup like mine or FreeGameDev’s. The 15 images/page limit could also be fixed using Soup.io.

I basically only want to motivate you to try milkytracker out yourself, because you will be able to make something that does not sound like something horrible, like what I did. Youtube tutorials are very good for learning to use it!

I noticed today, that finally OpenClipArt looks good. Cleaner layout, previews for all images!
I did not try uploading in the new style, but even if it works the same way as before, I will not feel “why am I doing this, hardly anybody has the time to browse this site” any more! :)
The next step is making OpenFontLibrary pretty. It´s wiki is nice already.

I created a preview gallery (WARNING 13MB OF IMAGES ON ONE HTML PAGE) of (nearly) all OFL(P) fonts. I think it was well-received. The code used for making it and also included, all fonts, are available in this thread.
OFLB’s wiki looks nice by the way.

I emulated a svn-style log of a git repository by converting it using git log
git log --date=iso --pretty=format:\ "------------------------------------------------------------------------%n %h | %an | %cd | %n%nnothing%n" > pp.log
The result is probably good enough.
