Appearance Maker

Create custom appearances to customize your app's look with NSAppearance

How to use

🎥 Check out this short video to see It in action.

The basic workflow is:

  • Create an Appearance Maker document
  • Select the UI elements you want to customize and click "Customize"
  • Edit the PSDs in Photoshop or equivalent and save
  • Change colors and fonts (font customization is not implemented yet)
  • Preview and export the .CAR file
  • Add the .CAR file to your app's resources
  • Load the appearance using NSAppearance and apply It to your views

Please note that Appearance Maker only works on OS X 10.11 and later and is not finished yet, some features are not working (mainly the effects and fonts editor).

What's NSAppearance?

Check the docs. Even though Apple states you can create a custom appearance using Xcode, this is not currently available, so I've created this app that lets you make custom appearances.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
