Full Version: Custom Command to switch skin???
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I have been looking for an answer for this and cant seem to find one. I want to make a custom shortcut to switch to a specific Skin. Do you know what the command would be? It would be the same as if I went to Settings/Interface/Skin and chose a skin to switch to. But I want to make a shortcut to this command as a home screen tab. Is it possible?? I would think so, but cant find the answer. Thanks
There is a JSON-RPC call to switch skins:

But you can't just paste that in a shortcut somewhere. You're gonna have to create an addon to do it and then run that.

Thank you so much for responding, im not very savvy at creating addons yet. Can you point me in the right direction? Has there been an addon made for this yet? Is there a template i can use? Maybe if i throw you a donation you could throw one together for me?? I would like to learn. Sorry if im bugging you, just been looking for something like this for a while now.

Attached is the addon to change the skin. Currently it will change to confluence skin. You will have to edit the default.py file with notepad++ to the skin of your choice.
