[Playground] Admin Theme UIKit

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I spend my sunday hacking a playground for the new admin theme together. Unfortunately it took almost the whole sunday, Fortunately it was raining anyway. 
If you find bugs or annoyances, please feel free to tell me about them.

What is it?
It is a backend with an integrated skin editor. In this weeks blog post @ryan showed how easily skinnable the new admin theme is. Now that can be done online without having to set up ProcessWire and LESS compilation (I did that for you).

Show me

username: admin
password: admin123

Why did you do that?
I really think the new backend is one of the three key factors for ProcessWires future success (as well as the new website and the documentation; basically the things a user sees first when he's deciding for a CMS). Many many weeks ago, when Ryan introduced the new theme, he said he will need help from the designers in the community to create the best experience possible. As far as I've seen, since then there was not that much input from the community. I hope a ready-to-run theme editor can improve that a bit.

How does it work?
Right of the search field there's a new icon which opens the editor. Simply create a new skin and start playing with it. The skin will be available throughout all the session, even if you refresh or change to another skin. When you log out or lose your session the skin will be gone, so save your final result somewhere else too!!

What other features will come?
Probably none, unless there's something heavily requested. I could probably add something to store the skins permanently through LocalStorage. Or I could add more possibilities for customization than just the LESS file. But first I'd like to see if this is used and there's even the need for those features.

Can I show my created skin to others?
Of course. Right now just "default" and "pw-theme-reno" are public. I would love to show more skins there. Just post the content of your skin in this thread and I will add them to the public skins.

I hope you find it useful and it helps making the most efficient and polished CMS backend out there.

      Hi guys
      I know some of you are UIKit fans like me. I built a site recently using UIKit 3 and I'm having some layout issues on IE 11 and largest breakpoints.
      You have to set quite a big resolution or have a large monitor to experience this as it only happens on largest breakpoints.
      The main column in the above URL is successfully centered in most browsers except IE11.
      On IE 11, it shifts to the right. Basically it's a DIV using the uk-width-expand selector and then I have a custom max width and a margin in there to centre the content horizontally.
      Here's a simple CodeKit and JSFiddle of the issue

      Thanks

      I have been searching a while for pre-made UIkit 3 themes that I can download in some form and use. But I have not found much. I work with variables and compile most times, but sometimes I would prefer working with a "finished" theme as a starting point
      I have found the following resources:

      Gallery Claeys is a art gallery in Freiburg, Germany, with focus on exhibitions of female artists. Our agency designconcepts developed a website that features the latest exhibitions of the gallery as well as an archive of previous exhibitions. Every artist has its own page with an excerpt of their works and a vita of the artist.
      The website was build with help of the framework UIkit and Barba.js for smooth transitions between pages.
      www.galerie-claeys.de
       
      Features:
      Exhibitions Page transitions  
      Exhibitions
      On the homepage you can find a preview of upcoming or current exhibitions as well as an archive of previous exhibitions. Based on the date the exhibitions get automatically sorted in one of the three categories (preview, current or archive). Each category has its own deep-link with URL segment.
       
      Page transitions
      The smooth fading page transitions are made with Barba.js.

      This is a website for the musical area of the protestant town church Pforzheim, Germany. Our agency designconcepts developed a website that provides informations about the choirs, ensembles and orchestras as well as dates for their rehearsals, services and concerts.
      The website was build with help of the framework UIkit.
      www.musik.stadtkirche-pforzheim.de
       
      Features:
      Events Download dates  
      Events

      The events for rehearsals, services and concerts were created in Microsoft Excel and then imported as pages from CSV. For better organization, events are cross-referenced with choirs, ensembles and orchestras. Services and concerts are displayed in a events list, but rehearsals are only displayed on the page of the choir, ensemble or orchestra, to make the events list more compact.
       
      Download dates

      It is possible to download every event date as ICS file, which will be generated on clicking the download button. You can then add this event easily to your calendar app and stay up-to-date.
