I recently set up my own Akkoma instance and while it works nicely, I really felt like the default theme selection is not very nice (could be called “retro” I guess…) and so I was wondering if we could get together and update the default themes (and maybe backgrounds, ideally .svg) to give akkoma-fe a nicer out of the box look and remove some of the especially outdated looking themes.
I’ll probably do it anyway for my instance, but if the devs agree that this would be nice to do, then I am more than happy to push this upstream as well.
I think this is a great idea. I am (as you know) currently sharing my current two themes as a pinned post on my profile, but on my instance I have it set-up slightly better, which admittedly gets over-written by updates, but is easy enough to restore to “my state, again”. It would be nice to not having to do that though.
Also, I intend to make another couple of themes (as I like variation), so I will be forced to think about a solution for sharing them all “properly” (i.e. theme + background image) at some point.
Feel free to add mine. I could add a a bunch to a page on the.teabag.ninja, like that existing site. Even just for now. (edit: I did this just to see)
I noted a few don’t work very well as they are too old from that old site now.
We should probably also add a nice custom emoji pack into it. I guess the popular ones like blobcat are not licensed in a way that would allow distributing them with akkoma-fe? Any alternative suggestions?
I think the blobfox one might be possible license wise.
Yeah, I like that too. I tried contacting them on the contact details given but, so far, no replies or responses. Also not accepting my themes when I send them in. So, as far as I am concerned, it is not usable for uploading, at least not for me.
