Wow that's a slick skin. Antoine, if you're on the list, top notch work.
Can't wait to get it running in my repos.

Very nice Timeline, but super dark when browsing diff's?
The green background needs to be lighter or the font needs brightening.

Interesting, I don't notice any contrast issues on my monitor. The font in
diffs could be a little bigger but the black on green being a problem isn't
something I picked up on.

Yeah, could be old guy eyes and smallish font. But, it is low strain
overall.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback!

I agree that the diff view could use some improvement. I'll experiment
tomorrow with increasing the font size and darkening the background colors
a little.

After trying to use the skin I've got a question: Does it depend on
features which are in trunk but not 2.4? I downloaded the folder and tried
to start fossil ui with the skin option, but got an unstyled page instead
of the nice view I see on the Fossil site.

There have been a lot of changes to the CSS tags since 2.4. It would
probably be best if you pulled down the latest Fossil source code and
recompiled.

Note that the self-hosting repository for Fossil is running on the
latest trunk version, or nearly so. It is safe to use the latest
code, even if it has not been released.

Thanks for the update, that's what I'll do. I've just been too lazy to
write a 9999 ebuild for Fossil.

Here's an attempt at making diffs more readable.

Since I don't have a place to host a public fossil repo with a recent
enough version of fossil, here are comparison screenshots:

Before: Loading Image...
After: Loading Image...

Note that I had to widen the skin somewhat to have more room for the diff
view, but it seems to look alright. I know some people even prefer skins
with a full width anyway - as a side note you can tweak the width or unlock
it by editing or removing the line "max-width: 1200px;" from the css.

I have submitted this tweak on the ardoise-skin branch.

I'm not sure I can fix this from the skin, since the background color for
ticket reports are configured by the user in the settings.

Perhaps there is a way in css to darken the colors that are set in the
elements attributes? I am not a css expert, and haven't found a way to do
this.
The background of the table in the "tickets" page is too light.

automatic adjustments to the background color.

If it's not already obvious, the fields on the ticket page are also too bright:

I have commited a new version in the ardoise skin branch where I have
reskinned the ticket view, which fixes the overly bright fields there.

I also switched to black text on the ticket report view, so that it is
readable with the default colors.

Fix the Tickets 'whiteout' and it should be the default!

On a slightly related note...
Is there a version of the fossil logo GIF (Home screen) with a transparent
background?
For dark themes like this, I think it would look better than the block of
stark white currently shown.
