Client App Color Schemes

Post by paulkok_my
It will be great to be able to search for Color Schemes to tweak how our client looked. :)

I thought Waze asked us to not document this in the wiki long ago.

EDIT: I believe this was a request similar to not posting the bookmarklets in the wiki which open the current WME view to GMaps, Bing, OSM, etc. maps.

EDIT2: I cannot find this request documented anywhere, ie. posted in the forum. I do recall having asked Dror this. It was also around the same time I proposed to Waze to have a custom color scheme contest, where users would vote and the winner's theme got officially adopted. They declined that fun.

Not all of the wiki is user-maintained. The bookmarklets to other map providers was and still is not allowed because the wiki is "owned" by Waze and that having code to easily browse/target/translate to another provider's online map would be equivalent to the company supporting copying of copyrighted information.

I do believe that something like color schemes would be ok now.

You could use your forum thread as a starting point, with a table to download specific skins.
A section on how to install for iOS, and Android. I concur it's a great idea. So many people (even experienced ones) don't even know it's possible, especially on iOS.

EDIT: Should this be forked into a new thread? I'm willing to help on a page for this.
Please do jump in on this one. I have not done much on the Client app pages and there is plenty to do.

I don't believe I can fork a thread, please do so.

I was thinking perhaps at the end we could have a list of user-created schemes, with a title, byline, description, and maybe screenshot, linking to either the forum post they're posted in or, optionally, to a page for the theme, which would be a subpage of the creator's userpage, containing more screenshots and the code for the scheme.
I like the idea of the wiki table with screen shots and a link, since it's being maintained in the wiki, a link to a user page is a good idea IMO.
