Skype Styles Beta skype skin by LeMex Skype Styles Beta skype skin by LeMex
Skype styles beta is finally out!

What is it?
Skype styles is a new skin for the skype chat on mac. Not only it is a completely redesigned chat interface, it comes also with very handy features for people that use skype on a daily basis, like fast links drop down or code highlighting
That's right you coders out there will be finally able to exchange code over skype like in a real code editor!

how to install
1. Get to the site
2. download the dmg file
3. Open it by double-clicking on it
4. Double click on the only file in the window showed after doubleclicking on the DMG
5 Open Skype and just go to preferences --> messaging and change the style to SkypeStyles.com (you can always come back to original style by selecting panamericana style)


Note:
Only new conversations will take the skin. Already opened conversations stay with old skinning. Just close the conversation and talk to your firends again!

features:
fast links drop down
help very documented
multilevel quote (see help in skin)
normal quotes (see help in skin)
code highlighting (see help in skin)
sql highlight (see help in skin)
social icons (see help in skin)

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-09-03
it's a little known fact that Skype can be skinned. well, at least it can be when you're a mac users. Skype Styles Beta skype skin by ~LeMex is a complete redesign and is packed with features that aren't even supported in Skype by default. for example it has code recognition, quotes, a last links box, custom emotes and bookmarks to name but a few.

the time and effort that went into this skin is evident throughout any detail and besides, it looks just marvellous. a definite musthave!!

Which version of Skype is this available for? I'd be more than happy to downgrade my skype for this to work :D

I'd love this skin even more if it expanded images from links, for example if you put [link] - the image would show inline in the chat.

haha, that was a feature at first, but skype killed it with security updates. You cannot pull ANY data from outside of skype (ie, internet) and inject it into the chat html.

I know :( And the person that has the code base is in the middle of nowhere in Thailand where he decided to settle down and get married.

Meaning this skin might be dead.... :(

Apparently Skype Styles is no longer compatible with the newest version of Skype. Can we expect a fix?
