Default [HomeLauncher/Themes] lightning launcher - 05012013

Under construction....

All credits go to Pierre Hebert for an amazing Launcher and being an amazing friendly dev.

Lightning launcher has a new in built theme backup/sharing so I thought I would start this so we can share on xda too.

Themes are called templates and can be built into apks or shared as a backup file which just needs placing in the LightningLauncher folder on your sdcard or emulated SD card.

You must have latest LightningLauncher installed.

Get it here. free version
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tning_launcher

Also available is the LL extreme Version which is a paid app.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...uncher_extreme


The launcher has a new inbuilt template engine that can create,search and apply templates.



Browse existing - will lead to the play store apks that are available to download and apply.

Apply - will apply any chosen template which is present in your LL folder on your sdcard/emulated SD.

I will link to all my current templates on post 2.

Apks and Normal files included.

Apks need to be installed then applied, other templates will need to be placed in your LL folder which is auto generated by the app.
Once there all that's needed is to go to the apply option and choose the desired template, accept the launcher to create widgets etc when promted.

!! PLEASE NOTE !!

Device specifics may lead to some templates not showing correct. All my templates are made on the nexus 4 so may look strange on other devices.

Further info and screens are available on the LightningLauncher G+ pages.

Selection of videos can be found on my channel.

Default Art with a wink Theme

Home


Screen 1


Screen 2


I decided to share my Pinup theme it's a little more work but for sure it's worth it
So here come the explanation how to accomplish this theme
First the things you need.
LL Launcher of course https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...9sYXVuY2hlciJd
Uccw https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...b213aWRnZXQiXQ
The Uccw uzip files this include the weather and wallpaper, it also include the PSD for the pinup tiles and the wallpaper PSD
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_Cu...it?usp=sharing
For other pinup files go to http://www.thepinupfiles.com/index.html#.UWzDI4n8J9A
You can of course also use other picture's or photo's instead.
Icons http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=2858
LL Theme https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_Cu...it?usp=sharing

I don't know sure if everything is packed in the theme so that's why I put everything with it and also a description how to accomplish this theme

Preparation
If you don't have Lightning launcher and/or uccw
Install them first
Unzip the uccw files and put them on your phone of course also put the wallpaper with it.

Wallpaper
This theme is for 1280X800, but because you have the PSD files you can adjust it to other sizes
Be sure only that you remember the sizes of your tiles because that will be importend in uccw.

UCCW
This you really have to check out when you adjusted the size of the wallpaper and/or tiles
Be sure that the background in the uccw editor have exactly the same size as the widgets (uzip) else you gone have trouble with aligning the widgets and also the hotspot of the widget will be very hard to get it right.

Lighting launcher settings
Current screen settings
Items>Text Display label off
Items>Icon Display the icon on, Enable reflection off
Rest of the Items no need to change
Wallpaper & Background> Display wallpaper
Wallpaper & Background> Select your wallpaper look up your wallpaper
Wallpaper & Background> Width 768
Wallpaper & Background> Height 1280
The rest of Wallpaper & Background stay the same
Behavior>Layout>Free mode on
Behavior>Layout> Dual position off
Behavior>Layout> Snapping none
Behavior>Zooming and scrolling>scrolling direction> Vertical only
Behavior>Zooming and scrolling> Scrolling speed 3.0
Behavior>Zooming and scrolling> Use scroll stops on
Behavior>Zooming and scrolling> Disable diagonal scrolling on
Behavior>Zooming and scrolling> rest of settings off
Behavior>Lost+found> Screen orientation > Portrait
Behavior>Lost+found> Hide the statusbar On
Appdrawer settings
Wallpaper & Background> Display wallpaper
Wallpaper & Background> Tint color (i made it black but you can pick what ever color you want)

Now the settings of lightning launcher are done and it's time to build up your screen
As you see the wallpaper have for the pinned widgets and icons (Weather, Time, Agenda, Frequent apps and missed) already aligned squars and there place
So that is gone be easy.
But first we have to put the pinup uccw widgets on there place because the alignment will be much easier.
Be sure that the hotspot of your uccw pinup widget is connected with the right app (if you have chanced it or in case i use a other app then you do)
Place the first one and go on from there it's a little hard to do but worth the effort.
When you have placed the first 3 the swipe with your fingers up or down to get to the top page or lower page to add the next 3.
When all this is done then add the pinned uccw widgets, you pin them by holding them a little longer then you get a menu in which you can pin them.

I hope you gone like the theme and it inspire to make your own or even better theme
