Description:

I've made a new black window decoration for Emerald with a rounded transparent titlebar.

If you don't like the transparent titlebar, you can also use the theme without it.

Try it out and give me your feedback if you want.

Have fun with it!

I've edited the buttons.
Now they change their look if the window is not the focused one.

I've changed the height of this theme, so now it looks smaller than before.

I feel like I'm collaborating on this one, despite not actually doing any work, lol.

Anyway, I think it's pretty much nailed at this point. It's got everything I want in an emerald theme, kinda reminding me of Neutronium Deepblack in aesthetics but with visible buttons.

Again, fantastic theme. Anyone with an extremely dark theme needs to check this out.

I'm puttering with the transparent one because it looks dang neat, especially when moving windows around.

It's too fat. On the non-transparent one, if you'd really trim it down and make it supremely compact this could be the best theme I've seen. I love the buttons and the look of it, but it's just too dang BIG.

Thank You for your optimization feedback.

I've updated it now with a smaller topbar, because i found you were right with your opinion, that it was too fat.

Have a nice day.

Beautiful now. I'm using it and loving it. Great work.

A possible second idea (just one to mull over, take it or leave it): have the buttons hide on windows not in focus, sort of like how Darklight has the X button red on the focused window, but grey on all the rest.

Of course, I have no idea how hard that is to make happen in Emerald, maybe it's too much of a PITA to make work.

Is theme's name inspired by Weed's U-Turn? ;)

Are those buttons your own work? They're quite nifty. Either way, great theme. Keep it up.

Nice to hear that you like them.
