tldr: If you have built skins or use skins that are not listed on
, please list them  and check that they work with current
. If you have always wanted to build a skin try the new tool
and give me feedback on how you get on! .
As part of my involvement in the desktop improvements project  I with
the help of many others have been trying to simplify the development of
As part of this, much-needed maintenance has occurred in MediaWiki core
with the intention of making skin development easier.
As a personal goal, I wanted to prototype a tool to showcase the skins
available in the ecosystem, and finally with the downtime of the holiday
period (no deploys!) I've finally done that. It allows showcasing  and
building skins .
While building this tool I was surprised to find that excluding forks of
skins, there are only __55 skins__ listed on MediaWiki.org
. Out of those,
only 38 have been kept up to date.
I can't believe that given the age of this project there are only 38 usable
skins and I am writing to you in the hope that:
1) You know of others that can be added to MediaWiki.org
in the "Skin"
namespace  Note, any edits to MediaWiki.org
will automatically get
picked up by the tool and listed.
2) If you build skins for closed source wikis, please consider publishing
them over the holiday period if you can!
3) If you have fix skins that do not work with latest MediaWiki so I can
showcase them on the new tool.
4) If you are inspired to make a new skin, possibly trying out the starter
kit tool I have created  which will construct a working zip file that
can be added to your local mediawiki and eventually github/gerrit and give
me feedback via Phabricator/email/github what can be improved.
