Hi Hugo,

This is fantastic! I'm so excited to see how far your efforts have

I'm ambivalent on where this is housed. You're certainly welcome to push it
to the Breeze project repo (widgetstyles/kstyle) if there's no consensus on
where to house it.

- make it the 'official' kf5 style (instead of the current QtCurve settings)

No objections from the VDG corner of course. :-)

I only have one or two questions. Generally though, this appears to be
quite a faithful implementation of Breeze UI controls design captured in
the QtQuick implementation.
- What corner radius is that? It looks a touch larger than I remember. They
might need to be a touch sharper everywhere (maybe round down instead of up
on corner radii?).
- If it's not too much trouble, we can eliminate the box around the header (
- The tabs look great. :-)
- The circular slider looks awesome ( :-)
- We (the VDG) will likely need to revisit the progress bar design since we
didn't account for the % label which currently moves it off-center. We'll
work on that and deliver an updated design that considers that. For now,
it's fine as is.
- I know this'll seem like a nit-pick, but is it possible to have the ends
of the slider and the progress bar have a similar margin so they share the
same alignment line ( I
completely understand why they look that way right now functionally, but
this tweak would be primarily for visual not functional reasons. I'll need
update the QtQuick implementation as well.
- There may be one or two other very minor things, but I'll wait till you
find a home for this and start ironing out any outstanding issues.
- Overall it looks fantastic!

+1. I don't have much to recommend for configuration right now so, unless
there are accessibility-related config stuff, I'd be ok if you decided that
the config is relatively lower priority compared to the other stuff here.

Wow. Super-excited by this Hugo! just holler if you have any questions from
the VDG side of things.

Much much respect,
