Announcing UIkit 3

Beta phase coming soon

Announcing UIkit 3

We're very proud to announce the next big leap for our beloved front-end framework: UIkit 3! The development started 8 months ago in January and since then we are working continuously on it. It's a complete overhaul of the entire framework. Compared to UIkit 2, where we've added more and more features with the later releases, the focus of UIkit 3 is on rewriting and optimizing the code base. UIkit 3 will be smarter, faster, leaner and even more powerful.

Migration

Like with all major releases, this will come with breaking changes. The good news is, we've got you covered! UIkit 3 will ship with a migration JavaScript, which will help you to migrate your existing website or app easily. Once loaded on a page with UIkit 2 markup it will show you everything you need to update and guide you through it step by step till everything works.

Beta Phase

We plan to release a developer preview of UIkit 3 with a long Beta phase later this fall, where we would love to get your feedback and ironed out any bugs left.

Check out our new UIkit 3 page where you can sign up for news about the UIkit Beta and stay up to date about the progress of the development. We are also starting to tweet UIkit 3 sneak peeks during the next couple of weeks. So follow us on Twitter.

    Great - can't wait to see this. Does the 'long beta phase' mean that this will delay the release of Warp 8? Or will Warp 8 initially work on uikit 2 (with the ability to update to version 3 via the script)?
    Thanks,
    Keith

      UIkit 3 will be used in all our new products ;-) The long Beta phase is especially to gather the feedback from 3rd party developers.

        Hi Sascha, so does that mean that the release of Warp 8 is being delayed? (As your previous blog post on 1st August indicated Warp 8 was being released on 1st October)?
        Or will uikit 3 be going stable on 1st October?
        Thanks,
        Keith

    Hi @sascha - can I feature request for when uikit 3 goes live, that the uikit v2 docs are still kept available on the getuikit.com website (even if it is in an archive or something).
    Also can you confirm what will be the browser compatibility for uikit 3? (ie will it support ie10 etc etc?)
    Thank you :)

    Will UIkit3 be released at the same time you release YOOtheme Pro? I signed up on the UIkit3 page, but up till now I only see your nice twitter sneek peaks, but no emails yet. Is there a way to betatest what you have so far or will the beta phase start with the release on the 10th?
    Can't wait to test all the new toys :-)
