Personal Quote: Damned if you do, damned if you don't

Made a typo in the original, correct filename is shell.css

I have recently offered my assistance to the authors of gnome-tweak-tool because I thought that the looks of the application could be improved a little bit.  Whether they use my suggestions or not remains to be seen but this is the content of the shell.css with my changes.  Doesn't look bad in Adwaita , light & dark modes.

/* the sidebar */
.tweak-categories {
   background-color: shade(theme_bg_color, 0.99);
.tweak-category {
   padding: 10px;
.tweak-category:focus {
   background-color: shade(theme_selected_bg_color, 1.20);
   border-radius: 3px;

/* the container and tweaks in a group */
.tweak-group {
   background-color: inherit;

.tweak {
