Inspired by @bernhard's excellent work on the new customisable LESS CSS getting rolled into the core soon, I thought I would offer up the module for beta testing, if it is of interest to anyone.
It takes a different approach to admin styling, basically using the Cascade part of CSS to over-ride default UiKit values.
Values are stored in ModuleConfig Module creates a separate AdminThemeTweaker Folder at root, so it can link to AdminThemeTweaker.php as CSS AdminThemeTweaker.php reads the module values, constructs the CSS variables then includes the CSS framework Can be switched on and off with a click. Uninstall removes everything, thanks to bernhard's wonderful remove dir & contents function.
It won't touch your core. It won't care if stuff is upgraded. You won't need to compile anything and you don't need to touch CSS unless you want to.
It won't do much at all apart from read some values from your module config, work out the right CSS variables to use (auto contrast based on selected backgrounds) and throw it on your screen.
You can configure a lot of stuff, leave it as it comes (dark and curvy), change two main colors (background and content background) or delve deep to configure custom margins, height of mastheads, and all manner of silly stuff I never use.
Have been developing it for somewhere around 2 years now. It has been (and will continue to be) constantly tweaked over that time, as I click on something and find something else to do.
That said, it is pretty solid and has been in constant use as my sole Admin styling option for all of those 2 years.
If nothing else, it would be great if it can provide any assistance to @bernhard or other contributor's who may be looking to solve some of the quirkier UiKit behavior.
Has (in my opinion) more robust and predictable handling of hidden Inputfields, data-colwidths and showIf wrappers.
I am very keen to help out with that stuff in any way I can, though LESS (and any css frameworks/tools basically) are not my go.
I love CSS variables and banging-rocks-together, no-dependency CSS you can write with notepad.
I want it to be NOT draggable on desktop but draggable on mobile devices. Also, on mobile, the element that I drag into focus should automatically be active, but on desktop, only when I click it.
It works fine on desktop, but when you drag on mobile, after the dragged element is active and you click it, it switches back and forth between this and the previous element (assigns the active class to the previous element).
I already tried to find help elsewhere, since this is not directly PW related but only frontend, but it's hard to find support or a community for uikit. PW seems to be using it quite a lot though…
Thanks for help
We're currently working on a few sites that have some users with very limited access; most importantly, some users can only edit their own profile and nothing else in the backend. We're using AdminThemeUiKit, so the CMS navbar only contains the site logo and the username for those users. The problem is that the crucial "View site" link that gets you back to the frontend is hidden in the dropdown behind the username. This isn't immediately obvious (and TBH it does feel out of place there, even when you know it's there).
I'm looking for ways to make the "back to site" link more visible – and I also think this is worth a discussion for AdminThemeUiKit in general. Here's what I have considered:
Admin Theme Canvas
A minimal admin theme with optimised page editor UI, based on Uikit 3.
Currently this is close to stable, but users are advised to be cautious and test thoroughly.
This theme is tested in all major Browsers including IE 11, Edge (>85), Chrome (>85), Firefox (>81), Safari (>11).
If you find any bugs or have ideas for improvements, feel free to post your feedback.

Small annoyance: I get a horizontal scrollbar in UIkit admin area - or actually Admin Theme Boss based on Uikit 3. I tried to fix it with CSS, but had trouble isolating/targeting it and don't want to mess with module or core files. I think this issue has been reported before. Is there a recommended fix?
