My themes

Unread post by Lootyhoof » 2022-03-20, 14:40

I've been keeping a distant eye on goings-on, and with several folks even reaching my email inbox I've been thinking about this.

Essentially, a few months ago my mind was in a different place to what it is now. I was maintaining a majority of the themes (with additional features being worked on in the background such as dark mode for several themes) and also heading the Add-ons Team. I also strived for perfection a bit too much, when "good enough" was fine. That, plus events happening in real life around the time, burned me out considerably and I had to put the brakes on hard.

Given current events, I think it's time to take action, if slightly differently than before. I will continue with themes, but in maintenance mode only (i.e. no new features like dark mode) to ensure nothing is materially broken. I will also not be releasing new themes (only updates for existing), but happy to provide advice if anyone needs it.

Changes required for getting themes running should be minimal. Effective immediately I will be working on updates for ALL of my themes. Considering the repos for several of my themes are no longer in my control on Gitea I will just resurrect the GitHub repos I used. That's where releases will need to go for now. Please do not expect an update to all themes at the same time as that isn't (nor was it ever really) practical. I will use this thread to post updates.

Thanks for your consideration.

Aeromoon is up: https://github.com/Lootyhoof/aeromoon/r ... tag/v2.7.0

I have enabled self-hosted updates given the state of the (non-existent) add-ons site. This will be the same for other releases. You will need to install this one manually and others will update automatically in the future.

Wow friend, that are tremendous amazing news, you made my day with your post seriously :clap: :clap: :clap:

Just keep all simplistic and easy going, perfection is not necessary, it only creates too much of pressure - just keep it all relaxed so that you feel fine and comfortable :geek: Also there are enough themes to make everyone happy, but if you ever should feel such a creative input/motivation which nearly forces you to create a new one, people would feel even more happy, that for sure ;)

Best wishes!

Just say the word and I will put you in control. Just let me know which repos you need.

I don't *need* them per se as I've shifted to GitHub, but having them not in the void would be nice:

Aeromoon
Fox 2 The Moon
Kempelton Reloaded
Modoki Moon
Moonfox3
Past Modern Revisited
Qute 4 PM
Qute Large
Qute Legacy

They are all under the BinOC group.

Thank you for Camimoon, my favorite. The universe is now back in order (well, mine at least, mostly).

Thank you for your work and support Lootyhoof. Have settled to Compact Moon years ago, fits my preferences perfectly. Previous version was already dual-GUID so there was no problem with PM30.

Installing v2.7.0 over 2.6.0 disabled it, and for a second got startled, but then went to the Extensions page and reenabled it. It's alright now. No idea why it got disabled, maybe that's how it always works, but then again haven't changed themes in years.

Only thing that would need some checking at some point after things settle down is that the address bar and the search bar have uneven heights - former is shorter than the latter by about 2px but only in a specific setup (all settings on zero in the How Compact? tab of the options dialog). No biggie , it's been like that since... dunno when. Posting screenshot here just for future reference. Operating system is Linux Mint, official Pale Moon build 30.0.0 GTK3.

Good luck ahead! :thumbup:

Dark Moon
Been running it as my theme for years (thank you very much, btw, I love it) and this update broke it. Also, I'm assuming the add-ons webpage is under maintenance or something because the links from the PM homepage are all dead on my end.

Tobin exited the project and took the addons site along with it.
I'm working on setting up a temporary space with the option to download extensions for Pale Moon, before attempting to restore the add-ons site on a new server.
