Works as advertised, thanks!

IMO, the last version looks better than the current menu. That said, I think the top/bottom paddings are still too tight, I would try adding 2-3px for each.
It's true that there's a question of taste but more whitespace is generally a good thing (unless you go overboard and start making huge widgets). A couple more pixels in the menus will help focus the elements better (by framing them in negative space), it will make the ui look less "full of stuff" and less tense.

Sure thing, here's all the variations with the proper type:
The clock size has been changed for 5.12, so this task can be closed. Unless you want to keep it open for configuring the clock size instead.
I can't +1 this hard enough. There's no point in having a line separating the titlebar from the window. For users that want their titlebars the same color as the window it just gets in the way, and for users that want a clear separation it adds nothing (since there's already the background color change to visually separate them).
Agree with the text not being useful for small sizes, but it could look good for a large logo-style image (like say, a 256px logo on the wiki/homepage).
A cassette is definitely an interesting idea for an icon. At least it's not another musical note or play icon :)

In the end, I traced over it with inkscape :) I couldn't figure out what type you were using so I just used noto (we can change it later).
Here's some ideas using the blue-purple gradient and others.

Hey sure! I'll try to work something out this evening. @abetts BTW, could you post the svg file for your logo? it would easier to work with that, instead of painting over with krita

+1 I wouldn't have this as a default for Breeze, but it looks really cool. I'm sure it'd be a popular option, specially among those trying to mimic macOS.

This is looking really cool! Here are some suggestions. (@abetts I took the liberty of painting over your work, hope you don't mind :) )

Just gave this a quick try and it really ties the UI together, nice work!

Check for > -1 to catch tracks tagged with a track number 0
Also include PlayListEntry.qml
Sure! I'll update the description too

+1 Looks way more organized, and it's easier to grasp what application you're seeing and what it does on a quick glance. Minor nitpick: I'd add more margin around the summary text (to separate it better from screenshots and the summary link).

The fourth screenshot (after on windows) has the perfect level of transparency IMO. The linux (after) one is a great improvement too though.
Jan 13 2018
I have to agree with @ngraham. I think the player bar actually needs more contrast. With some dark backgrounds I have to squint/get close to the screen to read the minutes.
Hey this looks even better than the old default, great idea!

Hey guys! Are these design tasks still open? I'd be interested in contributing

Adding them at the bottom is probably the best, specially if there's going to be more filtering options later on. They don't have to be visible all the time though, there could be a button next to the action buttons to toggle the filtering bar.

Make shadows larger using a bigger radius and some spread

Make it really obvious where newly-installed apps can be found

Update to remove unneded desaturate element.
Dec 29 2017
I knew it would look better, but not this much better!
Please accept this change
+1 Definitely an improvement. What do you think about grouping the homepage with the rest of the info at the top?
Dec 23 2017
Thanks for the tips guys!
- Tweaked regexes to fit better with the other regex in the file
- Version bump
- Added autotests and updated references

Not sure if there's still a lot of Unity refugees, a lot people seem to have settled on Gnome+dash to dock (and other extensions).
That said, it shouldn't be too complicated to make a unity look and feel for plasma (following @michaeltunnell's video).
Also, I'd consider using Unity 8's look, it was way more modern looking than 7.

I don't have commit rights (AFAIK :P), please push it.
Added a comment for magic numbers
Use relative scaling. The 0.71 factor looks funny but it aligns with the icons the best.
Also reverted the change for clock+date.

Hey, shadows are now getting disabled on albums and tracks views.
One small detail: When there's no cover, image is undefined in albums and tracks but for artists it's passed as an empty string.
Dec 11 2017
Add units.smallSpacing to single line height
Dec 10 2017
Reducing the scope of this patch a bit, it now sets the clock fontsize to a fixed value. This prevents all the layout issues from relative scales. The code changes now are minimal, so it won't add pile more complexity on the code.
I'll continue working on the rewrite when I have some free time again, and submit a patch when/if I have feature parity with the current clock.

+1 for this patch. The three-line buttons happen in many other places too (dolphin, window title bars, firefox, chrome, etc.). Users quickly learn that pattern and recognize it as the "menu button" so I don't think that would be a problem.

Thanks for the replies guys.
@davidedmundson Good point! I'll keep a close eye on the current code while I work on this.
Nov 26 2017
So, I've been fighting with this for a few weekends already and I just can't get it to work reliably with a relative scale. The spacing goes all wonk and sometimes the labels' font size don't change the way you expect them to (probably because of the maze of bindings).

Use zoomSliderHeight for space/progress bars
Here's a screen using oxygen
Forget what I said in the previous comment. I need a looooot of sleep :)
This version fixes the free space and connection progress bars for non-breeze styles
Nov 3 2017
We could do without the extra padding on the sides for the sake of other styles. It's mostly a problem of rounded corners (IMO), it's hard to follow the alignment of the widgets below the panes.

Thanks for the tip. I had arc set up for Blender and thought setting for KDE would be a hassle. Turns out it was a single command heh

@abetts Good news on the 3 bottom buttons. I was thinking of posting a mockup
with defaults and reset moved to the main menu too. About the GHNS window:
I thought that was decided against in the other thread, because qmlgrid couldn't
The grid with margins is the best IMO. It's the best use of screen space (and it looks better than the others) . I totally agree with the frame-in-frame problem (I wish dolphin looked more like your mockup!), but I think that adding too many lines can also end up adding visual noise.
