This repository contains a SASS based Redmine theme forked from the vanilla theme (public/stylesheets/application.css).
It supports Redmine V4.

Screenshots (can be older than head)
- Fixes for Redmine V4 : removed edit/preview tab since it is now implemented by V4, unfortunately upstream is still using a CSS and did a lot of changes ...
- Disabled header project list added on V3.4
- Project overview : show sub-projects as a vertical list
- Wiki : use tabs for wiki edit form and preview, similar to github
Changes from the original
- applications.css was converted to SASS using sass-convert
- and splitted according to sections
Ongoing changes :
- improve readability on a 150 dpi screen (more spaces, larger font size)
- convert icons to FontAwesome
- replace inline values by variables
- update first the most used parts of the Redmine interface
- flat design and contrasted colours (look at material design)
- use custom settings to help user to customise the stylesheet
- only support modern browser
- use the power of SASS
- use jquery to patch the DOM (patched erb would break Redmine for other themes)
- Redmine HTML code is prior to Bootstrap era and its semantic is not well defined. We can patch the DOM when it is mandatory, but it is a last resort.
What cannot be done ?
- style issue status : status-1 status-2 ... classes are related to the Redmine instance setup, Redmine should implement a way to inject CSS from Administration, workaround is to patch at SASS or CSS level.
