Description:

I have spent almost three months tinkering on this theme. I was hoping to have it ready as an xmas-upload, but I always find new things to redesign. I have been trying to take as much advantage of the different states of gnome-shell as possible, my wish and attempt has been to make the desktop diverse and alive.
The result is a dark and stylish desktop, with a dash of eye-leading coloring, which is using one of the most awesome fonts ever - Lato.

!
If you don't yet have Lato search for "ttf-google-fonts-typewolf" in your package manager or go to: typewolf.com/google-fonts ... Or just get it here.
-- If you download it then extract the archive in: ~/.local/share/fonts


Note: There are two variants available. One with the original Slim Dock and a new Pantheon-ish Dock.
- Screenshot


::: Installation :::

Method one:
1) Extract and put Carapace in either ~/.themes/ or ~/.local/share/themes/
2) Select Carapace from Gnome Tweak Tool

Method two:
1) Pick the downloaded archive directly from within Tweak Tool and it'll extract and do the rest for you.



::: Required Extensions :::

- User themes
- Dash to Dock


::: Useful Extensions :::

- OpenWeather
-- Because while the Gnome weather-program is cool, your location might not be there.

- Mconnect
-- Any KDE Connect user needs this :-D

- Custom Corner
-- Creates more freedom

- Blyr
-- Adds blurred background for the Overview


::: NOT Recommended Extensions :::

- Carapace has a built-in responsive panel. So an panel-altering extension is not needed, and for the full experience not recommended whatsoever.


::: Other than that :::

- Have fun and rate it up if you like my work... Or Pling me... Or buy me a cup of coffee: paypal.me/hackan301
:-D


Enjoy!

This theme looks very good. I'm looking for a gtk theme to use with it. What gtk theme are you using? Thanks.

If I am not mistaken I am using Arc Darker in the screenshots. It works pretty well together with Carapace :-)

I really, really like this theme... Its super polished! except there's one small problem. I hate the colors green and blue, and I know hate is a strong word. Do you think that in a future version of this theme you could make it so that people can customize the colors by editing a config file or something?

I'll try to come up with something. Been thinking about maybe making a graphite version for a while.

+Very good quality work. Dynamic border effects looks good on my wall papers. I have not checked on a wide range yet. But very good work. Good future for GNOME

* Fixed panel paddings
* Ajusted wallpaper edge

* Fixed a bug in search-results which made it impossible to autoscroll results while using arrow-keys. Using keys somehow feels more natural so this is a pretty nice bug-fix :-)

Plenty of good stuff in this update :-D

* I have remade the dock and given it a border and a shadow
* Task Switcher has gotten a makeover as well. It is now folling the style I made for Carapace Graphite witch a kind of flash/spot -light indicating marked program.
* I have adjusted paddings and spacings in the Overview
* The activities button (gnome foot) is new. A bit larger and with a better shadow.
* Tweaked shades of panel and menus as well as fixed a little bug in the button-shadows in the panel.
... I think that is about it...
* Oh yeah - I have updated the calendar also :-D

*worked on Overview
* Worked on Task Switcher
* Did some tuning of borders in the panel

| 2018.11.10 | 1 month ago

Pretty excited about this update. Been working on the following:
* shades
* Overview
* Totally remade the dock. It also now has new types of indicators for running programs - The more windows the wider the indicator gets.
I personally think it's sexy as hell :-D
* Also, renamed the theme variants so you can easily switch between the variants you install

| 2018.11.09 | 1 month ago

* Optimized code
* Tweaked some shades and font-sizes
* Removed the border in the Overview (because it created weird gaps in the corners)
* Trying out a more Pantheon-style look for the dock

Will continue polishing so make sure to check back for future updates :-)

Enjoy!

* Fixed volume and brightness sliders for latest Gnome Shell

Removed the separators between the menu-items, I think it looks cleaner on this dark version of Carapace. Hope you like it better this way too :-D

| 12.06.2018 | 6 months ago

- Carapace is now using Lato as first choice of font
- Changed the overall dark color in inspiration of Atom text editor
- Made the borders of popup-menus more pronounced

| 2018.03.10 | 9 months ago

* Polished up some details in menus and overview
* Replaced the Elementary-style Dash with a bar for the indicators.

Enjoy :-)
