This is a minimal Adium message style with touch of Metro design principles. Here is how it looks like (Empathy preview):

It was only tested on Empathy, but should work on any program that supports Adium message styles (including Adium itself :)) Also, I recommend using Open Sans or Droid Sans font, which are freely available from Google Web Fonts.


  • Linux and Empathy

    Easiest way is to run this (just paste to the terminal along with line breaks):

    cd && wget -O [^] && mkdir -p .local/share/adium/message-styles && \
    tar -C .local/share/adium/message-styles -xvzf [^] --strip=1 metro-adium-master/Metro.AdiumMessageStyle && rm [^]

    You can do the same manually: download and decompress latest repository snapshot, then put Metro.AdiumMessageStyle to ~/.local/share/adium/message-styles.

  • OS X and Adium

    Download and decompress latest repository snapshot, then just double click Metro.AdiumMessageStyle, Adium should do the rest =)

  • Other systems and IM clients

    Please consult corresponding documentation or community (it would be nice if you report back).

Any corrections, additions and improvements to the code and documentation are greatly encouraged, feel free to create issues or pull requests.


This style was initially based on the work of SoapyHamHocks.
