Tea Time-Lapse by gruppler Tea Time-Lapse by gruppler
I wanted an abstract wallpaper that related to the time of day, so i created these wallpapers using the GIMP, and i wrote a highly-customizable Winterboard script to blend the images slowly over the course of 24 hours.

Included in the package are a Wallpaper theme and a LockBackground theme for Winterboard. The only difference between the two is the name of the html file. You must have your iPhone/iPod Touch jailbroken and have Winterboard installed to use this theme. Otherwise, you can just use an individual image from the set as your wallpaper.

Edit: Added two more images to make the cycle correspond better to actual daylight

Yay, my first DD!

Edit #2: Fixed a silly typo in the html files
Edit #3: Improved the script, desaturated the 'twilight' phase, added a customized weather script

Love your theme gruppler, but I had a question. I would like to add time to your Tea Weather theme. How would I go about doing that? Thanks.

Not exactly sure what you mean, but if you just remove the webkit-transition stuff in the css it will not transition.

Oh, teh Craig. I knew there was a DD in your future.

Kind of makes me wish I had an iPhone...

I love the designs, and how they're evocative (at least to me) of a rising and setting sun. The colors are great, and the idea of blending them together in a time-based wallpaper (though I know you said it wasn't originally your idea) is fantastic.

I don't have an iPhone, but I eagerly await a desktop version of this.

Cool stuff.
