Creating own skins
- Create an XML-Textfile and name it skin_config.xml (you can find an example file here: skin_config.xml (xml, 611 bytes)).
- Set a skin name and description
- Create a background png image. If you want to create a scalable background please use the background png of one of the provided skins as template and copy the nine_patch_chunk information into you skin-xml. You can also just create a background image for your desired skin size without the nine_patch_chunk, but this has to be of the correct image size.
- Optional: Create some icon png images for refresh and config buttons.
- Optional: Set the font color for header and text lines (RGB in hex with format #RRGGBB, #000000 = Black, #FFFFFF = White), default is black. You can use the html color picker to select a desired color.
