Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-504) New default look for 3.0
Date Sat, 06 Jun 2009 20:36:07 GMT


Dirk Frederickx commented on JSPWIKI-504:

Simplification of the css is something to be worked on for v3.0 as it blocks the development
of new skins.

I've have been looking into the work of OOCSS []
which promotes the reuse of css-classes as if it were reusable components.   This is similar
to the proposal of Goran, but ... I'dont think we need css-classes for the headers.  (styling
of the h1/h2/h3 tags should suffice)
But probably much less unique #block-id's  and much more reusable .css-classes.

Additionally,  I'm considering to rename some of the main css-elements to align with eg Wordpress
template, so we can easy the porting of new templates/skins.
(eg 'pageactions' should become 'menu'; 'favorites' should become 'sidebar',  etc.)

Finally, I've been working to add lots of inline documentation to the css style;  to simplify
the future maintenance.
Also commonly used colors, border-styles etc. should be documented consistently, to ease skinning.

> Folks, I'm kinda tired of our old look.  I would like to propose that we retire the old,
plain look (which looks very HTML 2.0) to an optional skin, and adopt a completely new default
look to signify the milestone marker to a new life under Apache.
