@Gumboots Yes I am aware of it. We have spoke about it. A combination of both is what I planned. But either way it needs to be handled correctly If someone wants to fork the codepen and add in his changes we can update this I just do not have the time nor want to take time away from working on chameleon right now. Which is the priority

@TT37 All of that is planned for next version.

I am working on the icons changes today actually since its needed for the new theme anyway for compatability

[PR UP] New svg category and topic icons (read / unread), Font awesome on all icons (message buttons, email etc) <--We are not using just font-awsome but allowing for all icon libraries and everything will be svg
[MERGED] New icon system
[MERGED] Modern ONLINE status in user
[PLANNED] Same buttons style in this Dark theme
[PLANNED] !!! - Minimalist theme, no more any gradient colors

If someone wants to make a PR for the planned ones I will review and merge it.

Must admit I've been going down that path myself. When messing around with my own variations Christian's style the usage of !important was starting to get over the top, with the usual problems that brings. So I did the obvious, and got rid of earlier declarations that were screwing things up. Knocked out about half the content of colours.css just to get things out of the way. Frankly the whole damned lot could probably go.

made some more tweaks and refactors to the generator. It now uses a more standard approach to the panels and surface colors across the theme. in that they are all surfaces now...I have also simplified all the need for extra bg colors by using proper odd/even selectors

Its coming along nicely. I reworked the entire scheme based on the chameleon color settings. Which allows for a light and dark mode. Just change the $mode variable between $mode: light & $mode: dark

I still need to cleanup all the code but have a look!

I know I've said this before but I would like to reiterate that a guide is useful but a tool that facilitates the average user is the way to go if you want to have a real feedback on your work. It's the same difference between asking the average user to do a certain thing via CLI or the web interface.

That’s the intent when this is done but we are not there yet.
