iLeopard: iTunes-like Theme For Mac OS X

April 4th, 2009

Apple / Mac, Miscellaneous

While browsing through the interwebs, I stumbled upon a nifty little theme for OS X called iLeopard. The theme is much softer than Apple’s default, employing less gloss and shininess. It uses iTunes-like scrollbars like the ones rumored to be in the new interface for Snow Leopard. The download includes an easy install, custom install, and uninstall. The easy install sets up the basic theme without much hassle. The custom install includes a lot of options, such Tiger-esque window controls, and you can selectively choose which elements of the interface you want to change. When it’s done installing, all you have to do is log out and then back in to see the changes. No hacking is required and it uninstalls flawlessly. It’s a free download, so why not give it a try?

    Shafi- What exactly are you writing the theme for because you seem to be very experienced in coding in Windows but, no offense, you seem to be inexperienced in coding for OS X. Anyway, you can contact the creator of this theme at

    I’ve been told to write a theme for OS X. Previously I’ve no idea how to write themes for OS X. I’ve did it on Windows. I’ve experience in Dll Injection, Hooking and subclassing on Windows platform. But for MAC I don’t how to hook or any thing writing for Themeing. While I was hunting for theme for MAC OS, I saw your iLeopard. So I came with a big hope. Please suggest me how can I write theme for OSX, Any code snippet, clue book etc. Please suggest me… help me…

    Regards Shafi

    Thomas, the installation I used for the screenshot was customized. I kept the Aqua scrollbars. If you look close, you’ll see the Tiger-like window controls. I might change the image later.

    Hawered, I think the buttons look somewhat Vista-ish.

    I installed it and it looks really good. I will miss the Original but I think this is better in all. I love everything except the squared buttons. They look to, “Not Apple” If you know what I mean. But All In All, I love it. Thanks!

    Correct me if I’m wrong but one of the key changes to Leopard over Tiger and the rest of the OS X line was that the UI of Leopard was to be much like that of iTunes. By looking at the picture, I don’t see any changes at all to the UI.
