If you’re looking for a list of Ubiquity skins that you can install, check this out.
Every time I look at a screenshot of Ubiquity on the web, I flinch. UBIQUITY IS UGLY (just like that all caps text). Or rather, Ubiquity was ugly. I just finished up the basic infrastructure to enable skinning for Ubiquity. And already, we have one gorgeous new skin (thanks to Yatrik Solanki) that complements the ugly old one.
Unfortunately, this awesome skin only works properly on Windows. There are minor glitches on OS X and worse, transparency is not at all supported on Linux. But, instead of having a non-transparent default and depriving everyone of the eye candy, we’ll have different skins for different platforms. Here’s what the proposed Linux skin (credits to Yatrik again) looks like:
Although there will be minor changes before the 0.1.3 release, you can get started with skinning immediately. It’s really easy to create your own skins (just a single CSS file). Check out the skinning tutorial here.
Once you write the skins, you will be able to share them just like commands (without any scary warning page, though). And as soon as you install any skin, your Ubiquity will immediately be updated to the newest one. To switch back or to other skins, there’s the “Your Skins” page.
So, go create some Ubiquity skins! You can help make the Linux skin a reality.
