I’ve recently started using Mint to track visitors of my site. After installation I was a bit disappointed with the available themes. There are a few good ones — Shaun Inman’s own creations being the best — in my opinion, but most seem a bit outdated or not very thought through. More obviously these themes are showing their age particularly on devices with retina resolution displays.
So, I took my knowledge of CSS and went to work. Here’s the result:
Spearmint for desktop displays
Beautiful Graphs for Retina displays
An uncluttered readable mobile layout
- A clean, legible, and beautiful interface.
- A custom styled preference page.
- When used in conjunction with the iPhone Pepper you get a beautiful single column view.
- Buttons, images, and graphs have all been optimized to look great on Retina resolution devices and traditional displays.
If you’re interested, I wrote an article describing some geekier design features and decisions.
