Show Atom: Atom Editor w/ custom window decorations [POC]


#1

Continuing the discussion w/ @bjmiller from When porting to Linux, please consider making custom window decorations in the style of a GTKHeaderbar:

Github’s Atom Editor with baked in custom window decorations & controls.
https://github.com/nikolowry/atom-csd

NOTICE: Proof of Concept, Menu hasn’t been ported. Keyboard warriors are strongly encouraged to try it out since all of Atom’s commands/tasks can be run via 'ctrl+shift+p || cmd+shift+p".

Also note, I was just hacking away at the source, I’d love to build this out as a package; but I haven’t investigated whether I can override the default BrowserWIndow options.

This is pretty sweet. The direction GNOME has been going makes me want to revisit my Linux days.

Have you investigated putting tabs in the HeaderBar?

It’s a frameless window, everything you see is just styled markup. They are “pseudo headerbars”.

Because of that, you could make the “window frame/titlebar/tabs/headerbar” look however you please. I’m sure some creative people could design and implement some very nifty solutions.

GNOME DE/Arch is my daily driver so I wanted something that integrated looks-wise into the rest of my desktop.

That theme looks bitchin’ but I can’t find it (Ion Dark)?
