This is a Redmine-port of the 37signals® Basecamp® theme which includes issuelist-colouring based on issue's priority.


Peter Theill.


The basecamp® theme is a Redmine-port of the famous 37signals® Basecamp® theme. It is derivated from the alternate theme but supports/includes most of recent changes in the default theme.

It's looks can be best described as a darker version of the default theme with some specific enhancements over the default theme. The colouring is mainly designed around the three default Basecamp® colours: black, grey and blue-ish.
