Pretty Simple

Submitted By Piotrek Marciniak (piotrekm)

Description

A minimalist message style to match the Pretty Simple contact list style.

Includes a set of backgrounds in case the transparent look causes troubles while scrolling or switching tabs.

Changes

Please note
If you would just like to change the font size, without modifying the look of the font, in the Fonts window select the "Light" typeface instead of the "Regular" one. (This property unfortunately cannot be set automatically)
  • 0.2 (2010-05-28)

    1. Added custom scrollbar
    2. Users can finally set their own fonts
    3. Added timestamp wrapping fix (thanks to Jules Gravinese)


  • 0.1 (2009-08-18)

    1. Initial release


Any further changes to the style can be previewed on github before they are considered stable (yes, it was moved from launchpad):
http://github.com/ptrm/prettysimple-adiummsgstyle

Feel free to post bugs there. And to contribute, of course, too.

Absolutely great, if only there was a way to change the looks of the input and tab bars :-/

Nice :)

# by littlefriday on 08/27/09 at 01:08:09

Wow! This is beautiful. Great job.

# by diskopo on 09/05/09 at 17:10:23

I'm getting a weird indentation issue with the timestamps. Is there an option to fix this? Or is it a bug in the theme itself?

Here's the image:


And if that doesn't work, here's a link to the image: http://tinyurl.com/naj9rf

# by piotrekm on 09/05/09 at 19:39:13

Actually it looks like a bug, but the point is the font in consecutive message's timestamp should be smaller than on the screenshot, yours is unexpectedly larger. So it looks like your version of WebKit interpreted the style in a different way than it was planned;)

Could you tell me what version of Safari do you have, and is this happening for all messages or maybe only outgoing?

# by diskopo on 09/05/09 at 21:06:49

Version 4.0.3 (6531.9), and I'm running Snow Leopard. It's happening for incoming and outgoing messages alike.

# by piotrekm on 09/05/09 at 21:11:30

I've got 5531.9, so maybe that's the point.
I will finally get Snow Leopard on monday, so maybe I will be able to reproduce the problem then. For now I've no idea what might be wrong.

# by diskopo on 09/05/09 at 21:15:06

Thanks! Love your message style, btw. :)

# by piotrekm on 09/09/09 at 14:57:48

It still works on my Snow Leopard, so if you'd like to get it fixed, please send me and email (it should be visible on my profile page) and I would send you few versions of this style written differently, maybe any of them will change anything.

# by Cotecaceres on 10/14/09 at 14:24:12

Hi, it's really beautifull, but Im having problems changing the letter size. It's too small.

# by piotrekm on 10/14/09 at 15:06:01

Hi, is the size the same as on screenshots, or is it smaller?
I will add the ability to change the font size in future versions

# by Cotecaceres on 10/14/09 at 15:12:33

yes is the same, I thought it was a sample. Ok , so I will wait until you add the ability to change the font size.

Thank you!!!

# by batmandarkknight on 10/21/09 at 01:07:54

i was wondering if you can have an update with an option to make the bars in the message box transparent. :D

# by piotrekm on 10/21/09 at 16:47:13

That's a great idea indeed! Thanks for the comment, I woulnd't even find out that it's possible without it.
I hope the new version will appear in a month or so.

# by drywa on 10/26/09 at 15:40:03

i love it , its really beautiful
but there is a problem of the no scrollbar mode, adium will crash while i press the page up or page down key

# by piotrekm on 10/26/09 at 18:28:10

I have the same problem, it's strange and looks like a bug somewhere on the software part. I posted a bug report ( http://trac.adium.im/ticket/13251), let's wait and see what happens.

# by drywa on 10/27/09 at 05:02:39

i see
hope this will solve soon :)

# by Mewzle on 10/30/09 at 09:18:25

Brilliant design... wondering how on earth you got rid of the shadows though? I seem to get a shadow around every single message, and they start to fly all over the place!

# by piotrekm on 12/30/09 at 22:37:16

Could you show it on a screenshot? I'm not sure if I understood correctly.

# by Mewzle on 12/31/09 at 11:21:09

[URL=http://img684.imageshack.us/i/screens...[/IMG][/URL]

Is an example of just one of the strange things that happens, it seems to be OS X trying to create drop shadows on the transparant parts.

Also gives my mac a 'blue screen of death', where everything closes, if it is scaled beyond... about 300-400 pixels wide (Height doesn't seem to do anything)

# by Mewzle on 12/31/09 at 11:22:10

(I'm referring to the shadows around the bottom bar, and the strange clear bit below the top bar. ^^)

# by piotrekm on 12/31/09 at 13:33:06

The shadows around the bottom bar are also visible on the xtra screenshot, i'm afraid, only the background makes them less visible than on the white one. The top bar looks really strange.
What version of Mac OS X / Adium do you have?

# by Mewzle on 12/31/09 at 13:40:02

Aah, shadows aren't too bad, but that bar at the top seems to like moving around on my computer. I'm on 10.6.2, and the latest beta of adium. Can't think of anything else I've installed that might interfere with it... (The 'ghosting' happened on the stable adium too, so it doesn't seem to be that either..)

# by xemino on 02/01/10 at 15:02:37

thank you, it's very sleek.
how about you group messages together, right now the name appears above every message, even if the partner hasnt replied.
[IMG]http://imgur.com/knc0J.png[/IMG]

# by xemino on 02/01/10 at 15:08:35

apparently it does that, i just waited too long for the next message...

# by crux on 03/17/10 at 14:14:09

great theme! would love to use it as standart... but I'm unable to change the font size (only while writing: "command +") how come!?!?!?

# by piotrekm on 05/15/10 at 10:07:44

It was meant to be so, probably I took too totalitarian approach about what the style should look like. I will change it in the future versions, as I don't really see the point in locking this ability, too.

# by ohraesisstrakur on 05/15/10 at 01:14:26

What font are you using?

# by piotrekm on 05/15/10 at 10:04:51

Helvetica Neue UltraLight

# by efisaac on 05/27/10 at 21:24:12

hey i LOVE style!
but i can't change the font size, that's killing me
i can almost read :S
HELP

# by piotrekm on 05/28/10 at 11:53:29

Ok, here you are;) enjoy

# by paku on 06/18/10 at 13:26:12

I created an account with Adium Xtras just to tell you how slick this style is. Great job!

# by frankga90 on 06/29/10 at 16:00:44

when i change from one message tab to another the background of the first tab is like "burned-IN" in the background of the second tab :(
I love your skin but with that bug i cant use it

# by piotrekm on 06/30/10 at 09:58:51

Unfortunately there's nothing I can do about it, it seems to be an Adium bug occurring with transparent backgrounds. That's why I supplied the theme with a few backgrounds (see the theme variants). You can also set your own background image in the preferences.

# by frankga90 on 06/30/10 at 10:18:05

thanks for reply! will try that

# by Himura on 07/29/10 at 02:40:13

how can i add the am pm in the time registry?

# by piotrekm on 08/09/10 at 20:17:20

You would have to edit the theme file, and I have to admit I haven't thought about adding support for this. But feel free to fork the theme and submit it.

# by yoaj on 08/29/10 at 20:25:02

would be nice to change the message style background transparency. too transparent for me. wonderful look and idea though!! will still keep it as is but am certainly looking forward for an update!

thanks.

# by piotrekm on 08/29/10 at 21:11:44

You mean the background around messages? I don't plan to change that, you might want to try Elegant Simple fork of this style though: http://adiumxtras.com/index.php?a=xtr...tra_id=7394

# by kelleychambers on 07/17/12 at 17:44:56

I don't care what new styles come out this is ALWAYS my defacto, go to style... it's my favorite and probably always will be. Clean, crisp and VERY minimalistic. KUDOS!!!

# by Jon47 on 08/14/12 at 19:35:23

I love this theme! The only issue I have is that the custom scrollbar which was elegant and simple in Snow Leopard actually looks oversized and out of place in Lion+

Any chance of getting a version with no override to the standard OS scrollbar?

# by piotrekm on 08/16/12 at 19:20:18
