The original purple-color SproutCore theme was always intended as a temporary look and feel while the controls were developed.  The purpose of this project is to add a new theme that is more polished.  Developers should feel comfortable building applications off of this theme with few modifications.


The new theme should also establish some standard size metrics that developers can work against when designing their own themes.


Current Status


In progress.  An initial new theme has been submitted and partially implemented.  Still needs to be polished by other developers.  Here is what the current proposed theme looks like:





  • Levi McCallum 
  • Sakthig 
  • (Volunteer! Add your name here if you're contributing to Ace.)

Nice! That looks like a great start. I hate the current theme and was dreading all of the CSS magic I was going to have to do to get around it.

Hopefully we can get contributions from the community to really make it shine.

I don't really know a lot about SproutCore (I'm still deciding between SproutCore, Cappuccino and making my own framework), but here's an idea:

Making it look nice is important. But remember, it doesn't matter if you like it, because 90% of applications will want to have their own unique look, not, you know, something that everyone else have. (Web is not desktop)

So I think, making it easily customizable is more important than making it look super-awesome.

But anyway, it's really beautiful!

Hi you can absolutely customize your own theme. Almost everyone already does it. In fact SproutCore has built-in support. Just take the Ace theme and hack it.
