Re: My first contribution - Color schemes in Eeschema


Hi Michal,

First of all, I unfortunately have not yet actually tried out your branch
so I can't comment on the performance/functionality of your code.

There was already a launchpad issue tracking this feature request here:
I had been working on it a long time ago, but switched to some other
features and haven't gotten back to it.

I would be fine with handing over responsibility for this feature to you if
you'd like, but I think that your proposed change as-is doesn't go far
We should be developing a color theme system that works across all the
applications, not just eeschema (in my opinion).

Apart from that, from a quick review of your code I have some questions:

- Why store all color schemes in a single file instead of one file per
scheme? The latter is what I had planned, and seems easier to share between
- Is there a way to revert to the default (hard-coded) colors?  I didn't
see one, but again I haven't run the code
- "ChangeColorShemaInTempFile" -> I think "Shema" should be "Scheme" right?

Finally, for acceptance you would need to provide your changes as patch
files (using `git format-patch`) rather than a github branch.
