Yosemite Bowtie Theme - Morgentau by AdrianFahrbach Yosemite Bowtie Theme - Morgentau by AdrianFahrbach
Check out the interactive Preview

I'm not quite sure if anyone out there is still using bowtie, this has been laying on my desktop for months now, but I put a lot of time into it, so first off some big talk:

Only theme with a "working" progress bar! (as far as I know)
With iTunes 11 bowties progress bar didn't work anymore. Themes can still get the track length, but they can't access the current track progress. Morgentau has a timer running that counts up to the track length and stops when the track is paused. This method works fine, except when your skipping within a single track.

It's not the exact same blur radius as in iOS7/Yosemite but I prefer it my way. On my MBP Mid2009 it "only" uses about 1.5% of my CPU.

Customization options!
I've included various settings so you can change the color, animation speed etc.. The settings are also saved, so you don't have to reapply them when you're relaunching bowtie.

This thing might not be as useful as other bowtie themes, because the only purpose of this project was practice. I'm proud that I was able to create all the javascripts without external help (except the bowtie api documentation) and that I solved various problems concerning the translucency, the performance, extra long titles, podcasts, the progress bar and so on... I hope some of you still enjoy it :)

Theme looks great, but is there easy way to scale it down? on 1280x800 it's huge

You're a beautiful person, this is great theme.  It's nice to have a progress bar work again, thanks!

Hey There! Very nice theme, i was wondering if there's any way to make the whole thing smaller.. It doesn't fit in with my setup because of the size. Any help would be appreciated :)

Not yet, I already thought about making a smaller version, but for now this theme works best on those huge 27" displays :)
