Created from scratch, but based upon 1337. Designed to be very very simple, and highlight incoming messages. My first message style. It's ultra-minimalist, and should be easy to customise.

You will be able to use the style in the first screenshot without touching the Terminal.

NEW! Python custom substyle creator. Select Download, not Install, to use the substyle creator.
How to use: Let's say you unzipped the archive to a folder called bare1337 in your Home folder.
Tip:Terminal is in the Utilities folder in Applications, or you can type Terminal in Spotlight.

  1. Open Terminal and type this and press Return:
    cd ~/bare1337
  2. Then type this and press Return:
  3. Use the window that opens in Safari to create your custom substyle.
  4. Paste the code Safari gives you into the Terminal window, and if nothing happens press Return.
  5. You'll be asked to give your substyle a name, press Return after typing this too.
  6. Adium will then be restarted, and the substyle will be usable.

Tested with Adium X 1.3b7 on Mac OS X 10.5.3. Use at your own risk.

Tip: To remove a substyle, open Terminal and type rm "~/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/Message Styles/Bare1337.adiumMessageStyle/Resources/Variants/Variant Name.css", replacing the variant name.

The JavaScript colour picker is not mine. If you own it, please let me know - there is no author or license info in the source code, although i could've sworn it was 3-clause BSD.

You can now select any colours you want.

I am currently in the final stages of developing a javascript/python thingy to create custom substyles. You'll be able to pick whatever colours you want!
