AGS ThemeEditor
« on: 24 Mar 2019, 10:20 »
Hi,

I present you a Theme editor for AGS.

At the moment it is only a PropertyGrid which shows the Elements you can edit and save. (Plain and simple)
https://bitbucket.org/rulaman/ags-themeeditor/src
Edit: Now with the compiled app: https://bitbucket.org/rulaman/ags-themeeditor/downloads/

Planned (unordered):
- Visual attractive editor like VS2017 Color theme editor
- Plugin and stand alone versions
- Change ags sources to interact with editor and instant takeover of the settings.


Greetings
Rulaman

If my understanding is correct, this is for AGS 3.5.0 themes, right?

I get an error when trying to read VisualStudioDark.json:

Newtonsoft.Json.JsonReaderException: Error parsing comment. Expected: *. Line 732, position 31.

It appears it doesn't support comments. AGS itself uses the same json parser, so maybe it's just a missing option.

Maybe a missing option. I look into it.
Its only a preview at the moment.

Do you have an example file?

Yes. It is for the new themable editor.

Hi eri0o,

I have uploaded a new version. (.NET Framework 4.5 and a new version of Newtonsoft.Json which supports comments)

Now with a better layout (the PropertyGrid is still online and updated only, if you click in it, when you made changes in the other side.

Btw. The spec says, comments are not allowed in json files.

Hey, shouldn't this editor offer some sort of preview? Maybe capture a print screen of ags with many panels loaded at same time (for preview image), and have it's colors be filled dynamically per the settings.

I plan to made a plugin and an interface to ags to set the changes immediately.

Btw. here is a fork, with only the nessesary modifications to enable an online change of existing themes.

Guys, is it for AGS Dark Theme?

This is a tool that lets you configure your own custom theme. If you only want to use existing theme, then simply download the theme itself and install it through editor's Preferences.

How can I install this? Can you write to steps?

Follow the download link in the first post that sais "compiled app" (https://bitbucket.org/rulaman/ags-themeeditor/downloads/)
Download the one with the highest version number.
Create a folder and unpack a zip.
Run ThemeApp.exe.

Yes, this is for 3.5.0, that's the first version that supports custom themes.

Maybe I'm being dense, but I couldn't figure out how to color the background of the Room editor with your tool. It stays light gray.

Also, the little drop down arrows in the Room toolbar are always black and are hard to see with a dark theme, and I couldn't figure out how to change their color either.

Hi robcolton,

my editor shows only the content of the loaded file. Maybe the options aren't in the file, so you can't change it.
