Nintendo Switch Themes that use the covers of the physical version of the games
This idea born based on this Nintendo Switch UI Design (by u/JustAnyGamer)
So I created this theme (in the video above) using the u/Migush layout as base, is not exactly the same as in the Concept UI Design, but it has the Nintendo Switch original covers (that is the idea, they are not exactly the same). The theme in the video is actually running in my Nintendo Switch.
Maybe continue working on it, the idea is interesting. Help is appreciated, this is my idea for the project, so you can help me or develop your own project based in this idea
My idea of the server is similar to the API of HBG. Let me show you and example of how works that API:
This URL use the API to get the image with a 800x800 resolution for the game with title ID "01007EF00011E000" what is Breath of the Wild:
There is an exaplanation about how this API works here: https://blawar.github.io/tinfoil/custom_index/
And you can call a list of items using this URL:
So if we have a server with all the Nintendo Switch covers or a big set of them, a Client hombrew app can update the Downloaded Covers. Similar to this app that download the cheats collected:
We can replace the covers using the sys-tweak app and install modified themes using the NX Themes installer.
This theme with the big covers is actually my second developed theme, two days ago I made this another that I want share to you:
Thanks to r/NXThemes and NSXThemes (in Youtube) which are two excelent Nintendo Switch themes creating groups.
The song in the video is from here:
