What is this?
Plank Themer is a small application that allows you to change the themes in Plank with one click.
It adds a dock entry in your Plank Dock and allows you to select the themes directly from there.
Additionally I'm mantaining a repository with the latest selection of themes for Plank.
Do you like Plank dock?
Do you love to change the themes on it?
Then Plank-Themer is your thing. One click, new look.
Wait a minute
BUT! Is not that already in settings~Elementary-tweaks?
Yes... but *NO*. You can change the themes from elementary-tweaks, yes, but it is really unefficient. It takes you 1) open settings 2) open e-tweaks 3a) Scroll down 3b) click on themes 4) select your theme (also scrolling). 5) in the mean time, this process eat your time, your patience and SPECIALLY your memory and resources.
This is an *on-dock approach*. That means that is a dock entry. On sight. Completely integrated with Plank. One click. No intermediate steps. No time spent. No process in background. No resources involved. And you can change the theme houndried times with an impressive responsive result. Even after using your theme 10 mins... you want to change it back? one click. From all points of comparison, it is a better approach than elemematry tweaks. Nothing against, of course, but the motivation of building it (and using it) is crystal clear. If you like to often change your Plank look, this is your stuff. :)
