Homosapien Metacity Online Customizer

I'm sure that at some point everyone finds a Metacity theme that they fall in love with. Except that for that one thing. You wish you could easily change it. Now using the Homosapien theme you can.

I've been creating the Homosapien theme for awhile and came across the same problem. I couldn't keep everyone happy. Some wanted a smaller titlebar while others wanted it bigger. Various other bits suffered from the same problem (colors, buttons, rounded corners etc). What was I going to do?

I created the Customizer.

The Customizer is an online customization tool that allows you to tweak the base Homosapien theme to your liking which you then download and install.

Want a smaller titlebar or how about a bigger one... no problem.

Want the menu icon to be a nice circle that matches the other buttons or maybe just stick with displaying the application icon... no problem.

Want to define the theme color independent of your system/gtk color or maybe just stick to matching your system/gtk color... no problem.

Hate those rounded bottom corners... no problem just turn them off.

I prefer the buttons on the left like osx... no problem just position them on the left.

I'd really like colored borders that match the titlebar... you guessed it no problem.
