A radically new UI layout paired with goodies like a Darkmode will give your Drupal’s Admin interface a facelift. The Gin theme also includes things which are currently out of scope for Claro and/or some customisations we’re experimenting with for the future. Built on the foundation of Claro from one of the lead designers of Claro & Drupal Design System.
Gin and Claro are both maintained by Sascha Eggenberger , but his contributions towards Gin happen on his own time. Sascha has already contributed some time to answering our questions and reviewing patches that directly support farmOS. There are currently ~6k sites that report using the Gin theme.
I propose that we contribute $25/month for 1 year ($300 total) from our community funds to sponsor Sascha and the continued development of the Gin admin theme. A future proposal could renew the sponsorship after 1 year.
This is not an insignificant amount - the current farmOS OC Budget says we get $154 recurring monthly. But because the farmOS UI heavily depends on the admin theme, I feel that this amount is justified.
I assume that this sponsorship could list farmOS as a supporting organization on the Gin project page.
In the event that farmOS stops using the Gin theme, or the Gin theme stops being maintained, monthly contributions can be stopped.
Do you support funding this proposal?
