Vida Theme

It's January and that means that it is time for a clean start. So check out Vida, our first club theme of the new year. Its clear structure as well as its fresh and colorful design make it perfect for your e-commerce, magazine or blog website. Although it is so versatile that will suit any kind of web project.

Vida comes with a cool tiled layout, which is rich in contrast and can be split into light and dark sections. This allows you to create exciting designs with an overall flat and clean approach. You will find nice, subtle spots of color in various aspects of the theme, like the boxed panels, badges and particularly the spectral color scheme of the main menu that is different for each style. Take a look at the beautiful, tidy blog layout with the date and tags placed outside of the content to draw special attention. This theme also provides a bonus style for the Widgetkit Slideshow that perfectly fits its overall style.

Vida is based on Warp 7 and provides full support for LESS. The front-end is completely built with UIkit and can be modified through the Customizer. You can change colors, spacings and fonts without having to write a single line of code. To get you started, Vida already provides 8 different style variations with backgrounds to choose from for your project.

  • Full LESS support
  • Full UIkit integration
  • 8 pre-built style variations available
  • Customizer with color picker and Google fonts support
  • Beautiful off-canvas navigation for mobile devices
  • All Warp framework features are available

Warp 7.2 released

Improved customizations and UIkit 2.0 included

Dec

Warp 7.2 released

After UIkit 2.0, we are excited to announce the release of Warp 7.2. First of all, we would like to thank you all for your feedback! We took a lot of your suggestions into consideration, which helped us to come up with what we consider a major step forward in the development of our framework. In this update we improved and simplified the customization workflow. This makes working with Warp much more intuitive and user-friendly. The newest UIkit version 2.0 is of course included and you will also find an updated theme documentation to assist you with your projects.

What's new?

Essentially the override cascade is more similar to the one you are used to from Warp 6. You can work directly in your styles to customize layouts, CSS and JavaScript. The /custom folder has been removed. You now use the styles/STYLE-NAME folder to do customizations and overrides.

We also released a new version of UIkit, the front-end framework on which Warp is based. We simplified the UIKit themes and variables so it is now easier to work with. UIkit now offers new add-ons which you can easily include in your projects. Read more about the UIkit 2.0 release.

All Warp 7 based themes are updated for the Warp 7.2 release.

UIkit 2.0 released

To take UIkit to the next level, we have been quite busy during the last two months. We completely overhauled the entire UIkit repository, simplified LESS variables, added a new component and squashed some bugs. An addition are the new add-ons which complement UIkit by offering extra functionality like a Markdown editor, datepicker, timepicker and more. Make sure to take a closer look at our Markdown editor which lets you write your markup with a realtime preview. The editor also supports syntax highlighting, an extendable toolbar and a full-screen mode.

Moustache Theme

It's the end of the year and the holidays bring you our new theme: Moustache! So lean back, twirl those whiskers and enjoy our latest trim. Because the clean, flat, slightly retro inspired design of Moustache has everything you need to give your portfolio or company website a beautiful makeover.

Moustache comes with loads of great new features. Catch the eyes of your visitors with the fullscreen position, where you can put stunning images and videos. You may even use the photos we put there in our demo for your own projects. But that's not all. This theme allows you to create One Page websites with a fancy smooth scroller, thanks to the Scrollspy component from UIkit. Moustache was lovingly crafted with a lot of attention to detail. The well thought out main navigation provides the option to scroll with the fullscreen position, but remain fixed to the top of the site when browsing through the content. Also, check out the unique diamond overlays and of course the elegant two column blog layout with its centered headers and drop caps.

Moustache is based on Warp 7 and provides full support for LESS. The front-end is completely built with UIkit and can be modified through the Customizer. You can change colors, spacings and fonts without having to write a single line of code. To get you started, Moustache already provides 8 different style variations to choose from.

  • Full LESS support
  • Full UIkit integration
  • 8 pre-built style variations available
  • Smooth scroller position to create one page websites
  • Customizer with color picker and Google fonts support
  • Beautiful off-canvas navigation for mobile devices
  • All Warp framework features are available

Joomla World Conference 2013 was awesome!

Nov

The YOOteam in California!

We had a great time at the Joomla World Conference 2013, which took place at Boston's Harvard Medical School. Big thanks to all the organizers, speakers and participants we had the chance to meet there. The range of talks was enormous and all of them were worth a look and a listen.

Boston City

Apart from the Joomla World Conference 2013 we took advantage of the opportunity to get to know Boston. What an amazing city! Not only the Harvard campus was quite impressive but also Boston's city and the beautiful harbour are worth a visit. Our personal highlight was an evening at the Barking Crab, where we all had giant crabs that were freshly caught out of the sea.

I ♥ YOO Winners

It was amazing to meet you all and take time for a talk and a beer! We hope you all had a great journey to Boston, a good time at the JWC 13 and came back home safely. Many of you sent us wonderful pictures for the competition, which show your love towards YOOtheme. THANK YOU for every picture!

All winners of a Joomla theme developer membership will be notified by mail today!
