The cobbler's son might have no shoes, but the youngest can live on hand-me-downs. ÜberEllis.com presents a new theme (yet to be named, see below):
Yeah, I know - not exactly the best theme for a blog.. I've developed this theme for SWiTCH WebStart.
The theme utilizes the color.module, that comes with core of drupal 5 (Seen in the likes of "Garland" and "Minelli"). The aim is to speed up the design process for new clients. This way, implementation of functionality and "theming" can run concurrently for rapid deployment. :)
Here are screenshots of some of the presets in Unnamed.Theme:
The concept of Color.module is quite ingenius. It uses a simple php file to render some areas of solid colour and a gradient fill. Overlayed with a transparent .png file to make a composite, which is then sliced to create the images needed for the theme.
Despite a couple of limitations (I'm assured color.module 2 will eradicate these), it can be planned well, and certainly is a whole lot of fun to play with.
