I love retro aesthetic and long to integrate it into my life. However, using an Apple//e for my full time job and a brick phone instead of a smart phone can be…Cumbersome.
Here are some tweaks I’ve made to help me get my retro fix:
Android Smart Phone:
I loved the Windows phone interface. I found it to be very clean and straight forward.
When the Windows phone died, I was beyond thrilled to find Launcher 10.
After installing that, i used the Pip-Boy 3000 Live Wallpaper.
Then i swapped some icons with 1-BIT Icon Theme.
Launcher 10 makes it pretty gloriously straight forward and highly customizable, but feel free to message me directly if you need help customizing.
Launcher 10 allows you to colorize your icons - so dont fret when you see white icons using the 1-BIT Icon Theme. The hex code i used is #00D354
Atom Text Editor:
To get the look you see here, install This and This.
- Start Atom.
- Change your UI theme to “hacking-the-kernel-ui”.
- Change your Style theme to “hacking-the-kernel-ui”
- Close Atom.
Then, download the Pixel Emulator font.
After that, I made quite a few tweaks on the fly and cant quite remember what I did. So, just download my .atom folder and replace yours with mine (found in your user profile root)
My .atom Folder
Again, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
This theme is either awesome or very annoying - that’s for you to decide.
Feel free to share your ideas for further retro adaptation!
