Mint-Y: Don't use the accent color as much #202
The Mint-Y theme makes heavy use of the accent color. If you love green, you're in for a treat, if you don't... well it's a bit omnipresent.
We're also starting with a disadvantage compared to other projects because most of them are able to use Blue, which people enjoy more, which is easier to work with, more standard, and which generally looks better than green.
The idea here is to reduce the amount of accent color within the Mint-Y theme.
Here's a look at the current Mint-Y:
In comparison, here's Adwaita:
As you can see above, checkboxes, radio buttons are neutral and don't use the accent color. Same goes for toggle buttons and buttons....etc.
The Mint-Y notebook tabs are neutral (unlike the Adwaita ones) and they work very well. We should try and make more widgets neutral like this. We can always add emphasis on colour around the theme, in the use of selection, tiling zones, logos, backgrounds, etc.. we'll look more classy if we don't overuse it within the theme.
