I’ll let the video do most of the talking (yeah, I did a video walkthrough of the basic functionality), but the basic premise is this: on a whim (and a challenge from John), I set about creating an Alchemy plugin from scratch. Prior to this my experience with UI extensions was minimal, but Alex and John have been hooting for weeks that developing an Alchemy plugin is about a thousand times easier than creating one from scratch. So I accepted, and wrote a theme manager that allows for previewing, installing, and all sorts of other shenanigans… and a (mostly) complete theme… in less than a week.
The video is really here just to show the functionality and potential. I’m going to keep hammering away at features and enhancements, but just keep in mind that this is very beta. Bug reports and feedback are very much appreciated! So without further ado:
Theme Manager will be available shortly in the Alchemy Web Store! Stay tuned!
