Nice theme indeed.

I use fedora 22 with gnome 3.16 but I can't get the windows buttons on the left despite the css modifications I could get from everywhere...

Nice job

...these commands set buttons on the left

# gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout 'close,maximize,minimize:'
# gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings overrides "{'Gtk/DecorationLayout':<'close,maximize,minimize:'>}"

Hi! A beautiful theme, I sure need to give it a favorite. Let me just give you some of my ideas of things I would like to see improved (again, my ideas, you may see things differently and that is just fine B-) (Cool)).
I am using the layout where buttons are on the right side. The first button on the right is way too close to the window border. All the buttons are also very close together. It seems this might be caused by the right-side buttons layout and I would be grateful if you gave me hints on how to fix it (I know some css and gone through the theme files, but am not sure how the above can be changed).
Another thing is that the buttons may need some tweaking to better contrast with the background. Not sure if maybe darker color of the yellow button would do or maybe a "border" of darker color around the buttons. Then again, I am not a designer :)
Aside from that, I really love the theme, keep up the good work :)

first of all, thanks for the favorites :) (Smile)

... then about padding issue of titlebar buttons I've pushed some commits on github that change a bit the padding of titlebar buttons and distance from right (or left) border. Surely I'll upload soon a new release here, based on that changes.

If you want to have more padding check commits : I added some comments in the css code that should help you. 

About color of titlebars buttons I 'm agree with you:   I'm not a designer too, but I'll  try to improve them following your suggestions, so stay tuned ;) (Wink) 

Thanks for the feedback

There is one more thing - the backgrounds in some gnome applications that use CSD have color gradients. I was able to change this with the following "hack". Should you like it, feel free to use it.

I have copied the folder Mosssky into /usr/share/themes
(in terminal : su - ; chmod 777 -R /usr/share/themes)
but, in Tweak Tool I can choose mossky only in GTK+, help me please, I'm a debian's noob. :(

I have install my Debian 8 this afternoon, please help me, your graphical interface is so beautiful ! :)

Probably I don't undestand the real issue but please notice that MosSky is designed for Gnome 3.16 then only GTK2/3 and gnome-shell theme are available...

..so, is the MosSky gnome-shell theme not available in Gnome-Tweak-Tool?

The terminal window border is black in Mosemite, but after upgrading to MosSky it's now white. Why?

Are you speak about gnome-terminal or another terminal emulator? With "window border" do you mean the window titlebar?   A screenshot could help to identify the issue! :-)

.. terminal in the preview image is a patched version of gnome-terminal 3.16.1 available from  AUR repository  (I'm on Archlinux)  with transparency and other features; scrollbar and menubar are disabled  ;-)

Could you make window buttons more bigger, also for gnome 3.14 version?

dasnoopy Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2015
Check latest commit on GITHUB page : I did some changes and now titlebar buttons looks well-defined (changed format from svg to png and set size to 12x12px). Anyway, at least on my system, new titlebar for non-CSD windows have a issue, because sometime all buttons appears always in hover state... :\  (the issue appears also with adwaita theme)..

For Gnome 3.14 I'm no more able to do some test/changes on that version but you could try to convert buttons from svg to png and change the window-control.css file under gtk3.0 dir.
