Description

Would be nice to change to a responsive theme that looks good.

Not many up-to-date candidates really:
https://github.com/themondays/Dwarf Looks pretty clean judging by the screenshots
https://github.com/makotokw/redmine-theme-gitmike Interesting twist, riding on the familiarity of GitHub interface. More screenshots: http://www.redminethemes.org/redmine-themes/gitmike

Best would be to test them first and not simply plonk onto production instance. If there are small issues, we can try to fix them and submit upstream.

History

#1 Updated by Florian Effenberger 10 months ago

We had the gitmike theme before, but it had issues with fonts
Crucial is that themes get an update in time for new releases - that's
the reason why I migrated back to the default theme, but agreeably that
isn't pure beauty. ;-)

Do you have some insight into themeing/CSS? If we can fix the font
issues with the gitmike theme, happy to roll this out again, of course.

#2 Updated by Beluga Beluga 7 months ago

Well it seems this theme was installed: https://www.redmineup.com/pages/themes/a1
I had not mentioned it as it was last updated in 2014, but I guess it's ok and this can be closed.

Sorry for that - indeed, I installed the A1 theme today. I looked
quickly for the ticket, but didn't find it, my bad, didn't want to take
a decision alone.

I wanted to get rid of the annoying default theme, but am open to
improvements! Important to me is a theme that can be freely used, is
compatible at least up to the current Redmine 3.x, and has different
colors in the listing per priority.

Any proposals welcome. There's also a theme changer plugin for testing
out; however, not sure what happens if users select a theme that we
later on then remove again.

The Dwarf one looked so dark so I skipped that, but YMMV. ;-)

Gitmike had some font display issues IMHO, and I'd like to check the
license of the Github design first.

#4 Updated by Beluga Beluga 7 months ago

It's fine, we can revisit, if there are some radical new improvements in the theme scene.
