Subject Re: [DISCUSSION] Should we refactor the Wicket viewer to use Bootstrap?
Date Tue, 03 Sep 2013 09:54:20 GMT

+1 to the refactoring.

Currently we are forced to maintain our current "custom viewer", but with a more "easily customized"
viewer we could migrate it. 

I think that the "automatic" viewer generation is the most valued feature of the Isis framework,
 but the current implementation is not "as flexible as it's expected" for customizations.
I guess it would gain a lot of supporters between leads and prospects that can consider Apache
Isis in the near future.

It can be a big driver for adoption.

Regards,

Oscar
