Subject Re: Separate module for custom backend code and UI
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2018 00:14:08 GMT
May be I can be more specific in the ideal implementation. 

As there are lots of commercial templates (some are of decent quality, but still quite buggy)
for various carts in the marketplace, may be we can have most of the up-front front end work
done by buying these templates and just work on integrating the template into OFBiz. 

This should reduce a substantial portion of effort needed to have a modern front end (without
being an expert in CSS, JavaScript, JQuery, blah blah blah).
