Theme: Bubble Space

Hi! This post is long overdue but I’d like to share my theme “Bubble Space”. It started as a snippet collection for my writing vault and was fully developed into a theme during Obsidian October and even placed 3rd runner up! Also made it to the Gems of the Year 2021 so thank you to all who voted :hugs:

This theme is inspired by Bubbles for Light Mode and Outer Space for Dark Mode hence the name “Bubble Space”! It aims to be a fun and animated theme with its own “sub-themes” aka color presets.

Bubble Space is available for download in the Community Theme Store :shopping_cart:
You can also visit Bubble Space in Github
