My Runebender Light Theme

December 6, 2020

I have my own personal light theme for Runebender in a Git branch here. This theme is based on a UI mockup I made in Figma. It was designed for Twitch streaming and making video content, so everything is a bit bigger than it would normally be in most other desktop font editing applications. See the theme in use and build instructions below.

To use Runebender with this theme, open a UN*X shell (Mac, Linux, Windows(WSL)), and clone my fork:

git clone https://github.com/eliheuer/runebender.git

Move into the root Runebender directory.

cd runebender

Use Git to checkout the branch containing my theme.

git checkout elihs-theme

Run the program.

cargo run

You can also load a UFO (Unified Font Object) from the command line if you need something to look at.

cargo run -- ~/Fonts/repos/baby-shark/sources/baby-shark.ufo
