How To: Make phpMyAdmin Look Sexy In Under 10 Seconds

PMA8165 Theme

A clean, dark and minimal theme for phpMyAdmin 4.2.x

This theme was born simply out of my deepest needs – more precisely the need to not have to stare at the ugly default phpMyAdmin theme all day long (sorry, guy who made it). But seriously now, it had to come to this – in a multiple screen setup where Gnome looks awesome, terminal windows look awesome and Sublime Text tops everything, phpMyAdmin just didn’t belong.

I guess one could say PMA8165 was somewhat inspired from the Numix GTK3 theme which, in combination with a few more things, can make Gnome look lethal as detailed in one of my fascinating blog posts on How To: Make Linux Look Sexy In Only 3 Fast Steps.

Installation

Go to your phpmyadmin themes directory:

cd /usr/share/phpmyadmin/themes

Clone the repository from github:

sudo git clone https://git@github.com/mjohnson8165/pma8165-theme.git pma8165

Then just go to your phpmyadmin page and select the pma8165 theme.

Screenshots

Here are a couple of screenshots so you can get an idea of what you’ll be getting:

That’s about it, but if you’re in doubt, feel particularly constipated or for any number of other reasons you have a bad feeling about this, you should head over to the repository page and read the disclaimer section – that should give you an idea of what this is and what it isn’t. Enjoy!
