    Yes that is the idea. Currently I'm working on this (I forgot to add the WIP preffix to the post).

    Maybe it would be easier to just download all known covers into a zip file.could probably make some sort of script to parse one of the websites and then zip that up. Do that maybe once a month with a compare of downloaded assets to download only new ones And unzip that on the switch it's self. Rather than having loads of people possibly hitting the websites them self with a load of traffic

    i am working on something similar. but its more like ulaunch and will replace the default homescreen instead of beeing a theme.
    that means it wont break on updates and it will always have up to date images because its getting them from nintendo itself.
    basically getting a list of installed ids on your system and with some magic it will download just the things you need.

    the only thing i lack is creativity. its hard to design something new.

    this is a video from my pc but its already working on my switch too.



    i have siccc animations planned though

    I don't think it is possible to change the background or description of the items in this way.

    Although I am not aware of the advances of uLaunch. Maybe they added features and now you can.

    I'd like to see it running on the Switch.

    Well I have a SX Core v1 unpatched and I am willing to try it for you on the switch.

    sure but i have like 2% of the work done. ill write my own post once i have something testable.
    i also dont want to hijack this thread.


    my opinion is just that this isnt the best idea.
    (themes that break every opdate, some "random" sysmodule and another homebrew to do the dirty work)

    Hard to believe you are running something like that in the switch. But we need improve in the themes so any experimental tool is welcome :P

    If you have any progress you can use this post if you want, until you open yours. Which is almost a historical review of mockups and real designs running on Switch (like uLaunch's).

    This agrees that it is best to have a tool that does not break with each update. It's like the holy grail or something like that.

    Just take my word

    this has nothing to do with ulaunch or a custom theme. The video is made with an earlier version, thats why its lacking the description and background image thing. the name on the hb in the vid is just a meme. but you can clearly see its a homebrew and thus can replace qlaunch (the default home menu).

    I think the best theme they could do would be SwitchFlow. Yes, very inspired by WiiFlow. The best feature would be to choose different ways to view the covers as WiiFlow did.[​IMG] upload_2020-12-5_17-29-51.jpeg
