Last commit: [0d904bec] Update Railway (#393)

For those who like Doors 8 style, in spite of everything.

Railway Cinnamon theme

For those who like Doors 8 style, in spite of everything


From source

Run make install or move the Railway folder into your ~/.themes folder.

Cinnamon Spices

Download it from here or search for "Railway" in your Cinnamon theme settings.

Color customization

You can get some prebuilt color variations from the repository archive. You'll have to install them manually by copying the themes into your ~/.themes folder.

To create a custom color variation of the theme you need to install it from source in order to get the original code and scripts. Once you have it run make color=COLOR, where COLOR is the hexadecimal color without #. For example make color=FF00FF. Then run make install.


Run ./utils.sh --watch to automatically compile and reload the theme. It will create a link in ~/.themes.

It's important to run utils.sh from its containing directory.


Contributions are accepted via GitHub pull requests here. Please, if you modify any image resource, run ./utils.sh --simplify before creating a commit.

IMPORTANT: Never edit CSS files directly. They are overriden at build.

Build dependencies

  • sassc: compile sass files
  • inotifywait (inotify-tools): watch for changes (optional)
  • scour: remove svg metadata (optional)


Special thanks to @zagortenay333 for the codebase.

Just a question: How to make the icons at the panel look like Windows 7? Tnx!

You have to use an icon theme. There are no such here, search for «Windows 7 icon theme» on the Internet.

The grey variant is really awesome! Where can we download it please? Thanks.

Never mind. I've figured it out. Your theme rocks, dude!

Nice! For anyone in the future all you have to do is compile it with `make color=212121`, where «212121» is the desired color. For that you'll need the source from the repository, here you can only get a precompiled build in blue.

It's a good theme. Where I can find the dark variant shown above. Looks pretty cool. Can't find it under 'Themes'.
