Designing a User Interface is not an easy task to do. A person needs to have creativity in mind along with intuitive instinct to create a sleek UI design.
Not all people are good in design. However, with just enough tool to use, anyone can now design their own theme bundling their own UI styles.
Xiaomi developers team has managed to release the English version of MIUI Theme Editor tool. It is a software allows you to design and to create your own MIUI themes. It runs on Windows and Linux machines.
You might have enough design skill and good art instinct. However, you won’t be able to manifest that design without a proper tool. Actualizing a design concept into a usable theme needs a certain level of coding skills.
The Mi Theme Editor software comes bridging between a design concept and an embodied theme.
The software allows you to customize almost any aspects of MIUI user interface (UI). You can configure the general apps’ icons and system apps’ icons.
You can also specify the default wallpaper image used within the theme.
Furthermore, lockscreen and home screen area are also customize-able.
Even deeper, you can also adjust the appearance of all notifications: changing its style, color, icons, etc.
Several default system apps are also available for customization. For instance, changing the Messaging app including all buttons within the app.
