iCandy 1.1 by pritthish iCandy 1.1 by pritthish
Introducing iCandy!

iCandy came from the need to unify all the messaging clients I use.

It emulates Apple's Messages UI as closely as possible while throwing in some features tailored to Adium.

Includes:

- Slightly tweaked crisp bubbles from iChat/Messages
- 8 bubble colours
- Aqua
- Clear
- Graphite
- Lemon
- Lime
- Orange
- Pink
- Purple
- Non-avatar username only variant (just uncheck Show Icons)
- Customised file transfer request
- Shuffle mode

Amazingly easy to add new colours or new variants
By default, this messagestyle comes with 16 variants. However, it is possible to get up to 64 variants without knowing a single line of code!

Simply right click on the messagestyle package, navigate to /Contents/Resources/Variants/ and add a blank .css file with the following naming convention :

incomingColour vs outgoingColour.css and you should be able to use your new variant!

The 8 colours mentioned above are included in the code, however, if you want to add your own colour, just open /Contents/Resources/colors.js and follow the instructions!

Changelog

v1.1
- Added automated version checker
- Tweaked bubble colours more better contrast and legibility
- Faster animations (hopefully should fix the lag bugs some reported)
- Almost half the size of 1.0!
- Improved shuffle mode. No more instances of having the same incoming and outgoing colours

v1.0
Primary release

Uhhh downloading it is difficult because there is some sort of weirdness. I am using WINRAR.exe so which file name is it to open so I can have the theme???

There seems to be a glitch:

When I try to click on a link I sent in IM, only the bottom half of the link seems clickable. Also, if I click the top half it brings me to THIS website instead.

Cheers! : )

looks awesome, shame about the lag, i'm experience it when scroling the messages or new messages come into the window which scrolls them down.

what did you do to to 'fix' the bugs? at first i wondered if it was the image background or something, the linen. don't think it is though, i tried a more compressed image.

i compared the animation with these settings:

user icons visible - when this option is disabled, the animations improve. with them visible, its laggy.

so, hopefully thats a clue?

Thank you for your hard work on this! Any chance of getting the "Show as Boxes" and/or "Show as Compact" styles?

Using it for a while, it's really great :) I suggest a new color: #82d248, it matches with 10.8 ML iMessages green colour. Pic: [link]
