recolorable E18 theme


The wonderful window manager Enlightenment E18 comes with a beautiful dark theme featuring a blue glow.
But as blue is not everyones favorite color, we have been working hard to calibrate our crystals and provide you the possibility to see your favorite window manager in a new light and shiny new colors.
So finally, here it is: rElightable - the default theme in changable colors.

Get rElightable!

Grab the theme here,

Note: The theme is based on the 0.23 version (2019-12) of EFL. There will be a new version for the latest E/elementary soon - stay tuned!

How To Change The Main Color

  1. Open Enlightenment Settings -> Colors
  2. Select "Focus" Color
  3. Set the desired color and accept

Fixed Color Version

If you prefer to save some CPU cycles, you might want to look into the supplementary project: rElighted - the default theme prepacked for fixed colors.

Older Version for E17

The rElightable theme started in Jan. 2013, right after the default dark theme became the default theme for the newly released E17. If you prefer the former E17, you are probably more interested in rElightable for E17.

Technical Background

All this is based on a simple script (see #2057) using

to repack the E18 default theme.

Many thanks go to Alberto 'Duma' Verdoja, who came up with the great idea of a freely colorable version and pointed out, how to implement this in Edje.
