Adium Matte is the Adium version of iChat Matte
. It simulates iChat's bubbles but instead of the default aqua appearance, it uses a matte appearance that is more subtle and appealing.
Because of the limitations of Adium Message Styles and my own time, I was only able to make incoming variants. Your message color will always be aqua. Feel free to change this to anything you want with the main.css stylesheet in the xtra. It will accept any color and mask it accordingly.
Since I'm not a full-time Adium user, you might find the occasional bug. Feel free to leave comments or suggestions here or on my blog
Update: Andy Allcorn or phantomgorilla.com has kindly updated this to fix some issues. As I mentioned, I don't use Adium so I wasn't able to test this out but I trust that he did a fantastic job. The changes include:
- Manual resizing makes the contents snap to the bottom as in iChat, not scroll slowly; new messages still scroll slowly.
- Minor CSS tweaks (status, bubble padding, spacing, etc.).
- Timestamps are now in tooltips only (whether this is a good idea for status messages I'm not sure, but it's more iChat-like).
- Updated the bundle format and template to message style version 3.
