    the theme looks and feels good.

    I have an issue (tried with 2.4.0 and 2.4.5) when config debug is on. I get an error in the Helpers class

    as it gets null for $this->wire('adminTheme').

    can you verify?

    kind regards

    Did a port of this very pleasant theme to make it PW 3.0 compatible. Ready to share it if someone will have interest.

      very nice to hear someone made a port. Unfortunately I don't have spare time as I had before so I haven't made any changes since PW 2.4.

      Please share it in the Moedesta forum thread.

      I would love this for a site i'm upgrading to PW3. So my users won't have to get used to a 'new' admin panel.
      Is there a github repository available where i could test this?
