Joomladay Germany 2013

Last Friday we attended the Joomladay Germany in Nuremberg. Even though we could only be there for the business day, we had great fun, got to meet old friends, saw a number of interesting talks and had giant cookies. Congrats to the organizers who did a great job on the event. We even had the chance to present two sessions of our own. Our developer Artur also took the opportunity to give a lightning session during the tech talks. For those who missed our presentations, you can watch them here through the Jandbeyond Youtube channel. Both sessions were held in German.

ZOO meets UIkit

It will make ZOO look great in all Warp7 themes

Aug
08
ZOO meets UIkit

Today the ZOO learns to integrate with UIkit. With UIkit we have just released our own lightweight and modular front-end framework. It powers all of our new Warp 7 themes starting with Nano3.

With the new ZOO 3.1 release the ZOOs apps now feature each a new UIkit template. This will make ZOO look awesome in our Warp 7 themes. The ZOO app will automatically adapt the style of the Warp 7 theme. All without writing a single line of code. Read this article in our documentation section on how to use the ZOO with one of our UIkit based themes.

As always, grab your own copy of ZOO 3.1 and take it for a spin.

We are growing

A brief update on our future plans

Aug
05

This post is about the `Status Quo` of YOOtheme, our future plans and the new product pricing. In the last 6 months we spent a lot of time developing and re-inventing the foundation of our themes. Namely, our new Warp 7 framework which is behind all our current theme releases and UIkit, our new front-end framework.

Theme releases

During the development of our latest themes we realized a rising complexity. Five years ago all we had to do was to make the theme look great in every browser. Nowadays, themes are much more feature-rich. They are responsive and we have to deal with all kinds of viewports and devices. Our latest Warp 7 release brings two new elements into the development: LESS and our new customizer. Making the customizer work great takes a lot of tweaking of all the different variables. Also, the demo content and style variations have become a lot more sophisticated and require a lot of work. In conclusion, we can say that each theme takes 2 months of design and development.

Lava Theme

Lava Theme

Check out Lava, our August 2013 theme release! Inspired by the modern flat style, we cooked up a fresh, clean and spacious design that will serve perfectly to present your company or portfolio site. It is bright, colorful and extremely versatile, making it an excellent blueprint for all kinds of web creations.

This theme is packed with great features. The fluid wrapper is extra-wide and displays beautifully on large screens. A smooth off-canvas navigation lets visitors browse comfortably through your site on their mobile devices. A neat sticky navbar attaches itself to the top of the page when scrolling, so that you can easily reach it from everywhere on the site. Smooth animated buttons, a sliding search and a nice image overlay give an overall modern and interactive feel to the theme. Optionally, modules can spread over the full width of the wrapper, which is great to display images or slideshows "framelessly".

Lava 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, spacing and fonts without having to write a single line of code. To get you started, Lava already provides 8 different style variations to choose from.

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