  • Forest-ttk-theme

    A beautiful modern theme for ttk, inspired by MS Excel's look 🌲🌳

    Styling is hard(ish) - compared with CSS, or XAML, it is relatively difficult to style. What seems to work best are using the pre-built themes e.g. forest-dark/forest-light.( Even with the advent of ttk, there is no common way to style elements. As far as I could tell, this theme e.g. used pngs, there was no way to override individual style elements without actually modifying the underlying style. Ttk styles do help a lot, (I managed a half-way decent pastel-color theme, the issue was with more nitpicky styling management, there are no good defaults), but they are not enough.
