[Description] - A modern, visually appealing greeter for LightDM.

lightdm-webkit2-greeter is used to customize and rice lightdm. With this package being added to the kali repos, it will allow advanced users that use tiling WMs (like i3-gaps) to customize their Kali installations even further.

Hello - thanks for the suggestion.

It looks like there isn't an upstream any more:

This repository has been archived by the owner. It is now read-only.

Hey g0tmi1k. I know, but the issue is Antergos is now no more, hence that. But this is what is used to theme lightdm, which is used in XFCE4, i3-gaps etc.

Alternatively, here's the Arch Linux package:

By the looks of it, it seems to be maintained/updated there (correct me if I am wrong).

But regardless if it is being updated or not, it can still be added to Kali, can't it? After all, it is used to expose a JavaScript API to themes to allow the ricing of the greeter.
