Deep in the pits of the Topcoat Theme lived way too many colors. It made it tricky to customize a new theme quickly. So we leveraged the color functions from Stylus to wittle the colors down to just a few base colors:
- Text color
- Control base color
- Page base color
- Notification color
- Highlight color
- Shadow color
This colors then effect the rest of the theme. Each of the previous colors can still be declared manually if you need that control.
Here's a screencast that steps through the theme and how to tweak it.
