Add colors to the views - beautify Sunbird/Lightning theme


(Calendar :: Sunbird Only, defect)

Not set

Sunbird 0.3


(Reporter: mvl, Unassigned)



(7 files, 1 obsolete file)

Old views had nice blue colors. Current, new, views are gray and boring. Colors should be added to make it look nicer.
I have made a userChrome.css version out of the 'old' Sunbird look and this patch here. The preliminary result can be found at . 

This way it should be easier to play around with several color combinations etc. without the need to patch Sunbird/Lightning and get some feedback. The 'old' look is not necessarily the best one - but it is less boring than the current one.

Attached patch minimum approach (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Minimum approach to get some colors into the views. Theme is far from being finalized but for 0.3a2 it should be sufficient. I'll add screenshot soon.

If someone has a better idea for the 'today' column?

minimum approach

 calendar-header-container[selected="true"] { 
-  background: #ffe79c !important;
-calendar-header-container { 
-  border-left: 1px solid #999999;
-  border-top: 1px solid #999999;
+  background: #D5E3F2;

calendar-month-day-box-item[selected="true"] { 
   color: #000000 !important;
   background: #ffdb67 !important;
The one thing that I like about the current color scheme is that 'selected' has similar colors regardless of whether it's a column, box, or item.  I think that helps to reinforce the notion of selected, and can help train the user to associate that quickly with references to 'selected day' and 'selected event'.  Can we preserve that?  It would probably also help to distinguish the 'today' problem you mentioned.

Talk to me on IRC about coordinating this landing with Bug 321545 when you get a chance too.

theme looks similar to the first attempt but leave currently used yellow tone for selected days.

minimum approach, v2

Alright, this looks good enough for 0.3a2. r=jminta.  I already landed the css restructuring so I'm working on merging this in by hand.  I'll attach a checkin-diff once I get that sorted out.

This is how the patch looked, ported to the restructured css files.
Bug no longer blocks 0.3a2.
No longer blocks: sunbird-0.3a2
This was fixed for Sunbird 0.3 Alpha 2 release. 
Please file new bugs for further improvements to the default theme.
