Let your wallpaper shine beneath material darkness!

I proudly present to you my first cm based system theme! As I'm still only getting into things, there may be lots of issues that need fixing. Also note that Cyanogenmod has only just merged the theme code, and will need to undergo significant changes before everything is as theme friendly as lollipop. Theme choosers are more restricted than regular zips/vrthemes, so please bear with me as I figure things out.

XDA Version (no mirrors please) - beta apk's containing the bleeding edge of glass darkness
I have decided not to do a pro version anymore. All stable additions will be added to the free version. You'll have the option to donate via the app or via paypal though.

Bug Reports

As the theme chooser is still in alpha, there are lots of issues, pertaining to both the theme itself and the apps it modifies. As such, bug reports will be quite necessary for development.

Before submitting one, please take a look at the FAQ and bug/issues sections in the app itself. Then, send me an email from the app (where the system info will be added automatically), as well as any screenshots/logs that might help. I will try to resolve the issues as quickly as I can.

Yes, I am currently open sourced, as you can see from the OP. However, this DOES NOT mean you can simply copy parts of my theme and add it freely to yours. I am choosing to open up hundreds of hours of work so that users can learn and perhaps expand on it; I expect other themes to still be from their own work, and for other users to not take my work as an easy way through. With that said, I recommend you fork from the official cm theme template and build from there. Check the comprehensive read me, join the google + community, and keep trying! I am a beginner just like the rest of you, and I'm sure we'll all be spending up to hundreds of hours in creating something appealing.

Material Glass Boot Animation

This is not a flashable zip; move it manually and rename it to "bootanimation.zip". If you don't know how to do this, then don't use it please (just use the cm theme and apply it through there).

Thanks! As system apps are not completely in my control, I might go ahead and theme some user apps first. Hopefully Tapatalk will be clear in the next update

He can pm me if necessary. Making the theme and the zip are almost the same thing, except you have more restrictions on the theme chooser

Well he definitely has the mod down, it's just every time a new nightly is released, he has to go in and change things to get it to work until the next nightly. If he can just make it a theme, he wouldn't have to worry about changing it every time a new version of the rom is released.

I understand. Please note that the roms are still not fully compatible with theme choosers. All the hex needs to be moved out of Java and layouts before we can fully theme it. As such, things like the settings app can't be changed. Creating the app is almost the same as making the zip, which is why I'm asking the other themer to pm me if he has issues. But as of now, our main concern is pushing commits to get the ability to theme and to just wait for it all to clear up

Next build won't be in a while. Theme engine is still in its early stages so adding anything else causes the system to crash. I'll keep you guys updated
