Version 1 of this app was named "Hangouts," so if you download and install version 2, it is named "Google Hangouts." If you're upgrading from 1.x, please switch your theme to "Google Hangouts" after installing 2.0 or later. It would probably also be a good idea to delete the old version from the Xtras Manager, or by removing Hangouts.AdiumMessageStyle from
~/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/Message Styles/
Unofficial clone of the Google Hangouts theme for Adium.
This is a theme based off of the Google Hangouts
, using Chris Coyier's blog post from CSS-Tricks
as a starting point.
Steps were taken to remove flexbox as a dependency (Adium's WebKit engine doesn't support it) and some minor quality-of-life tweaks as they fit my fancy (I felt that consecutive messages needed a little more spacing).
For group chats, I replaced incoming messages icons with a unqiue (to the person talking), persistent Identicon. I couldn't find a theme I liked that really distinguished people in group chats. That's really the main reason I set out to create this theme.
Unique, persistent Identicons in group chats (can be overridden by user-set icon** (does not work on history))
Smart Timestamps that adjust according to how long ago they were sent
Extra padding at the bottom to let you know you're at the bottom of the conversation
Mad Google love
Mention indicators* (dark message background)
Focus indicators* (green border on the right of message)
History indicators (semi-transparent avatars)
Sticky Topic* (hover to see full topic)
* Focus indicators, mention indicators and topics are exclusive to group chats (they just don't apply to 1-on-1 chats).
** To set an icon for someone that doesn't have one in Group Chat, right click their name in the user list and click "Get Info" and drag your icon of choice over the generic Adium icon.
