Attention Theme Designers:

If you are theming Arcus in your themes and more importantly if you're working on it right now. Stop it until the next version is released (Probably this weekend).

I'm including an optional dark theme for Arcus that can be selected in settings. This will expose a lot of resources in styles and colors. Many attributes will be changed in the process and your themes will become messy.

I'll post an update soon. Thanks!

Update
Arcus v2.0.2 now available with fixes: https://goo.gl/nuI2fu

Testers needed! Specially those who already bought the premium version of v2.0.0 for Instant patching:
Test APK Arcus v2.0.1: https://goo.gl/O9vyV2

CM13 should work great with this version's instant patch feature.
Known issue include:
Wallpapers stuck to system default sometimes while instant patching themes.

Non CM ROMs (DU, PureNexus, etc) and CM12 input is highly requested:
Is theme building working fine now?
Instant patch won't work for these ROMs as cm_platform_sdk is (read 'may be') absent in these ROMs. I'll investigate on this and see if we can have instant patching working on this ROMs.

Unpublished the latest update v2.0.0 due to bugs on CM12 and DU ROMS (Both Lollipop and Marshmallow based). The bug relates with the use of cm platform sdk which may not have been implemented in these roms.

About 10 persons bought premium version after I released the update. If your ROM doesn't support instant patching in the coming update (above mentioned ROMs) please send me your order number and I'll refund you ASAP.

+Dicken Christian we keep the theme engine at pre-sdk because we don't want all that lovely bloat that the sdk internals comes with. However, the only difference in classes is imports. Let me ping you on hangouts

PROZT v2.0.0 UPDATE
Prozt is now split into two apps: Dashboard app and actual Theme app. This was necessary for stability and developing ease.

You probably already have the dashboard installed. But here are the links anyway:
Dashboard app: https://goo.gl/AOghpR
Theme app: https://goo.gl/OxXLgk

Download both the apps. Apply Prozt theme and start using the dashboard!
APK building has been removed. Say hi to instant patching!

Instant patching features:
- Theme variants can now be applied instantly (ROOT access needed).
- Wallpapers too can be changed on the go.
- Fonts patching requires a soft reboot.

Keeping it short here...Peace!

I guess I'm about to be lynched by some DU users!

Arcus FCs on instant patching on some DU devices on official 10.4. Here's the FC gist: https://gist.github.com/dchris87/b3044ae57d28baafdf2339bb78cc36f0

Following devices have reported this Arcus FC so far: Nexus 6P, Nexus 6 and SM-N910F (Note 4), A001

I'm not much of an expert here but it is probably this commit? -http://gerrit.dirtyunicorns.com/#/c/502/

Is it possible that some devices missed some commits? I tested the instant patching feature on Hammerhead official DU v10.4 and it works flawlessly.

Changelog:
New: Instant Patching support on Dirty Unicorns ROM
Warning: Atleast DU v10.4 is required & do a clean install of Arcus (Uninstall and reinstall Arcus)
Screenshots can now be maximized
Moved some handy options from settings to navigation drawer
Improved color tinting in variant detail section
Other fixes & improvements

DU users: Instant patching is now supported
Often the work of ROM developers go unnoticed and most of the time we fail to realize how much time and effort was invested in a certain feature of a ROM. +Randall Rushing is the guy in making instant patching feature of Arcus possible on DU. Thank you Randall for your tireless efforts! DU users: Be sure to thank him when you can! #StayDirty

You can try out instant patching feature with Radius by +Kohlewrrk & Atomic themes by +SteelDesigns [Android]. There are other themes too (You may comment them below).

To theme designers
100% of users have now upgraded to Arcus 2.0+. You can remove deprecated array 'config_zips_list' and corresponding strings for config display names.

Use the new format array for listing the config zips 'config_zips_list_compat2'.

+Andre Zimmermann​ reinstall Arcus. If that don't do it do a wipe. In order to get things going on DU, I had to write a "pre-cmsdk cmte" library. The library basically does the same thing cmsdk does, but just for CMTE before the cmsdk refactor. I'll publish the library and source soon and post back up for app devs interested in this work.

Arcus v2.0.2 is now live: https://goo.gl/KfmJpM

Thanks to all the people who reported bugs in 2.0.0 immediately.

This update is quite huge for official CyanogenMod 13 ROM users with cm_platform_sdk included. With the help of the platform sdk, Arcus is now able to implement Instant patch feature (Premium/Root option). No APK building and installing hassle in the middle and the theme applies in 10 seconds! A lot of work has been put through to make this feature available. Theme Designers need to add support for this feature.

A note to Non-CM ROM users i.e. the many users of DU ROM and other ROMs:
If your ROM doesn't include cm_platform_sdk, It doesn't support instant patching themes for now. I'm looking into this and trying to find some workarounds. It can definitely be partially implemented if not as efficient as it is in official CyanogenMod ROM.

A note to Theme Designers:
This version brings some goodies for you. The GitHub tutorial is updated: https://github.com/dchris87/Arcus-Support-Tutorial/wiki

Migrating your supported theme from Arcus 1.0x setup to Arcus 2.0x (arcusCompat v2)
- Tabbed layout support
- Instant patching support for official CM13 ROMs
- Compact view config preview drawable support (Step 2 in wiki)
- More from developer option in bottom sheet
- Screenshots are now optional
- Keep old arcus configuration while users are still updating to Arcus 2.0x

Theme designers already using Arcus can just go through Step 2 of the wiki and the new sections on Tabs & Instant Patching. Have a look at this file for an example setup of an arcus setup xml: https://github.com/dchris87/Arcus-Support-Tutorial/blob/master/res/values/arcus.xml

A little preview of Arcus v2.0. Credits to +Andre Zimmermann for the fantastic Radius theme. A modified version of the theme was used for testing purpose.

Notable new features in v2.0:
- New design
- Tabbed layouts for theme variants
- [Premium] Instant Patching themes (No apk building, requires root)

- [Developer Option] Automatic patch builder for configs (Last screenshot). Using this feature, theme designers can build a patch file for their configs and include it into raw folder which can be used to apply the themes on the go without building a separate APK.

No ETA yet. Check back again!
Peace!
