Subject [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-5040) Widget & Application HTML clean-up
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2012 14:02:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-5040?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13458701#comment-13458701

Adrian Crum commented on OFBIZ-5040:

This type of cleanup has been done before - around 2007. The current HTML structures and CSS
styles were the result of that cleanup. New HTML structures and CSS styles are always welcome,
and the success of the effort will depend on rallying support for them.

For reference, here are the Wiki pages that describe the current widget markup:



> Widget & Application HTML clean-up
> ----------------------------------
>                 Key: OFBIZ-5040
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-5040
>             Project: OFBiz
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: ALL APPLICATIONS
>            Reporter: Paul Piper
>              Labels: html, webapp, widget, widgetrendering
> I am sure that this is a common thing to know: the current backoffice application relies
heavily on widgets. This is good, but the current standard-html-structure is not flexible
enough and often lacks proper w3c implementation. 
> To make matters worse, you can often find applications avoiding widgets at all and rather
overriding the standards with custom ftl implementations. It is these customizations that
break the html on numerous screens and make it difficult, if not tedious to create new themes
for the backoffice. 
> This task is hence to:
> * Find a consensus on a new widget standard
> * Go over each of the application ftls and convert these to the new standard 
> * Recreate the themes and simplify/clean-up special rules
> Since redoing the theme is a rather large task, we should consider to add an additional
css for now which stylises the replacement html instead of working with the old.
