GMail skin for multiple accounts

Post by Saiho »

My first skin is complete and can be found here, together with it's full description.
If anyone cares to download it, I'd love some feedback on the code. This is my first time coding anything and, seeing how small some other skins can be, I get a feeling it could be made more efficient, but I can't really figure out how to do it while keeping all the functionality.

Feedback on anything else is of course welcome too!

Now that's cool. A whole set of skins for a full system readout would look amazing.

Thank you!
The next step is actually to make a set of skins in this style, but I'm trying to write everything from scratch, so completing that will take me a while :D I'm learning as I move on.
Currently struggling with the text input plugin. :oops:

Nice. It will look great when it's done. Have fun learning, I know I am but I have quite a few things still to learn.

EDIT: On your DeviantArt page it says Requires 1.4 (beta) surely you mean 2.4?

AutoCAD and Photoshop ;-)
PS alone should be enough for most things, but for straight lines and such I prefer some pure vector software.
I'm a designer, not a programmer. For me the hard part is the coding :D

Those backgrounds look fantastic. I'm working on a similar design, but pretty straight forward and boring hexes, not these fancy lines and lights you have going on.

I've had coding experience, that stuff comes easy to me. It's the graphics I've always struggled with.

Thank you! :)
A (hopefully) improved version of this skin will be included in this collection I'm currently working on. I think the graphics in the new one look a bit better.

I did use your config but it doesnt display any of my inbox messages. All I wrote in your settings.inc was these

Code: Select all

MailID1=tweaknfreak
Pass1=******
My gmail account is tweaknfreak@gmail.com and the password is given, but still nothing turns up. Please tell me where I'm wrong.
