Description:

Don5318 made this theme for windowblinds and I asked his permission to offer it here in Linux. He kindly granted it.
You can see his amazing work (For Windows OS) here:
https://www.wincustomize.com/explore/windowblinds/8892/
I have made this theme to be GTK2 and GTK3 compatible. This is slightly modified from Don5318's original.

------------UPDATE----------- Broken on XFCE 4.14
While the Window borders on this worked smoothly and well on XFCE 4.12, I have learned that they are broken on XFCE 4.14. Update needed--- I will work on it.


NOTE:
I have recently discovered PCMan's "gtk-nocsd" product. You can read here:
https://github.com/PCMan/gtk3-nocsd
It is available in repositories and can be installed from terminal.
What This Does: It disables gtkClientSideDecoration on apps that use it, allowing the Window Manager to do its job.
Given the current trend and the news that XFCE 4.16 will fully switch to CSD (Becoming like Gnome 3) and will remove XFWM4 (No more XFCE Window manager which is why many of us switched to XFCE desktop in the first place) - It is very important to let the developers know whether you disagree with this decision. (I have done so- Loudly.)

Currently, the developers do not seem to be listening. Rather, they feel they should explain to us, the users, why what they want for us (and themselves) is what we should want, too.
If you disagree with XFCE removing XFWM and replacing it with GNome 3 CSD, please use the links and Be Heard.
There is no set icon theme for this window theme. So I modified the CopperDeckEX set slightly since it seems to match this a bit.
In this version, inactive windows fade the titlebuttons and three distinct lines appear on the side tabs, allowing you to easily differentiate your active window from multiple windows open.
Allside tabs stick out (top and bottom)on XFCE using XFWM4 Window manager.
For gtk apps, only the top tabs stick out.

--Update: removed ugly top border line on top of the headerbar. Smoothed it out to be one normal crisp line at the top.

PLEASE NOTE: The Applications Menu you see in the screenshots is a Custom Rig that pretty much only works on my computer. It is built with Graeme Gotts WhiskerMenu version 1.5 and Python. It is not included in this package.

To Install:
Extract the downloaded .ZIP file into your ~/downloads folder.
Extract Ninja-copperdeckModicons.tar.gz to your ~/.icons folder. You can then select it from your settings.
Extract ninja.tar.gz to your /usr/share/themes folder with Root Permissions (Or, you can extract it to ~/.theme folder). You can then select it from your Theme Appearance Settings.

Ah, good. I was hoping others would take the Whiskermenu themes as Templates to create their own.

You are referring to the Application Menu? What you see in the Screenshots is made using a backdrop coded in Python. I then use wmctrl and xdotool to tie it into Whiskermenu so that the backdrop opens a split second before the Menu does, creating the effect that you see.
I can teach you how to do the same, but it is a bit tedious and time consuming.
You do have another option: Theme directly into the menu (Though you will not get the larger Window Image as easily.
Please let me know if you are using XFCE 4.14 or 4.12. If you like, I can see if I can create a Custom Whiskermenu theme for you and put it up for download. :)

I had to look up the definition of that word. Just when I start thinking I am smart... I learn I am not. I will relay your compliment to Don5318. And- thank you :D
