During quarantine I started a theme called Rebel and it got shelved due to a change in plans at work. Recently, I decided to try and finish it. It's a very big departure from the direction of my previous themes and feature bloat.
The idea was to drastically change the way a user gets around in Moodle. To make it super simple. Simple as in there aren't a whole lot of buttons and hidden menus where you need to know what to click on to accomplish a task.
I developed a sidebar icon menu which contains all the links a user needs beyond what is plain and obvious on a page such as breadcrumbs, etc. The layout is clean and includes a block column. The theme is also super lightweight and will be easy for others to modify to their liking.
Rebel is coming soon to GitHub as a beta release and it is open for suggestions. This is a side project and I'll be swamped with the start of school so no promises on a finished project.
Check out a video of Rebel with a nearly complete sidebar.
