Minima, a minimal theme for Discourse


(Kris) #1

The goal of this theme is to reduce the UI and focus on the text.

I’ve gone through and made text larger and removed just about anything redundant (and anything that I don’t use regularly). For example, I know that suggested topics are suggested topics, so I removed the header. I’ve used bulk select on the topic list maybe twice ever, so it’s gone. Views on the topic list? gone. Categories in the hamburger menu? gone.

You get the idea, here’s the theme.

:man_shrugging: How do I install a theme?

For extra minimalness, I recommend using the Categories Only layout for the category page.

Glorious serifs! I love it.

The desktop :hamburger: menu listing all the other themes seems odd to me, though.

I’m LOVING this theme, especially the topic list, amazing work :heart:

A couple of tiny issues in PM’s, a missing icon:

and I feel like the small size of the assigned text makes it hard to read, because the text has been made larger for just about everything else (Header, Suggested messages etc.)

I love it, although losing the theme switcher from the nav on mobile did cause a brief moment of panic!
