LuCI Themes

MAHDTech
On the PacketInspector forum, someone posted a beautiful LuCI theme

Does anyone remember what it was / have a site with a list of great themes?

Anyone want a different default in images....

Hi
I remember tiring it out, thought it was from ITUS and would be in sp1 release, but never appeared. Have not idea where it came from.

Just install it like a regular package... opkg install. No config necessary.

Installing luci-theme-material (0.2.17-1) to root...
Configuring luci-theme-material.
[email protected]:/#

Same.  
Downloaded the tar to try and get an idea, and looks like it's copied the theme files to
/www/luci-static/material
/usr/lib/lua/luci/view/themes/material
but just not then switched to that theme.  There's also an "itusnetworks" theme in those folders.

This page indicates that luci should have a settings page to allow us to select the new theme once installed, but maybe ITUS have disabled it.  Anyone know how to change luci themes via the shell?

Guts of the theme makefile within the tar, might help:
THEME_NAME:=material
THEME_TITLE:=Material
...
define Package/luci-theme-$(THEME_NAME)/install
	$(INSTALL_DIR) $(1)/etc/uci-defaults
	echo "uci set luci.themes.$(THEME_TITLE)=/luci-static/$(THEME_NAME); uci commit luci" > $(1)/etc/uci-defaults/30-luci-theme-$(THEME_NAME)
	$(INSTALL_DIR) $(1)/www/luci-static/$(THEME_NAME)
	$(CP) -a ./files/htdocs/* $(1)/www/luci-static/$(THEME_NAME)/ 2>/dev/null || true
	$(INSTALL_DIR) $(1)/usr/lib/lua/luci/view/themes/$(THEME_NAME)
	$(CP) -a ./files/templates/* $(1)/usr/lib/lua/luci/view/themes/$(THEME_NAME)/ 2>/dev/null || true

Going off memory, you have to install an earlier version like 0.2.3 then update to the latest version.

Figured it out.  Full set of shell commands:
cd /tmp
wget http://github.com/LuttyYang/luci-theme-material/releases/download/v0.2.17/luci-theme-material_0.2.17-1_all.ipk
opkg install luci-theme-material_0.2.17-1_all.ipk
uci set luci.main.mediaurlbase='/luci-static/material'
uci commit luci
The previous default mediaurlbase was '/luci-static/openwrt.org', but that theme isn't installed so I think it may have been falling back to the first available theme alphabetically (and 'itusnetworks' comes before 'material').



I've made some Shield file changes to get installed themes appearing in the UI - if you'd like a copy see this github pull request.

Hi Gnomad

Nice work on the theme switcher, one problem i did fine is that when you switch back to ITUSnetwork theme  the fonts are a different size than the orginal
I am luck to have 2 shields so 1 is in router mode and has the theme package and modified system.lua installed, my second shield is in bridge mode with only the modified system.lua installed





as you can see they are different sizes, both where taken from a screen shot so don’t no why they show up different sizes but look at the ITUSnetwork log is on a different line, top picture has the installed theme and modified system.lua. Apart from this, it works fine, as this is out of my league i dont know how to fix, but if it is fixed then i would say merge into master on Github

great work Gnomad

Re: LuCI Themes

Thanks Roadrunner,
The file I changed could not have had any effect on font sizes - notice that even the logo image is smaller.  I suspect your browser magnification levels may have changed somehow, perhaps an accidental ctrl+scroll wheel could have done it?  

If all else fails, suggest pressing ctrl+F5 after the theme change, just to ensure the browser's cached CSS files are cleared.

Cheers, Gnomad
