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:

Playing around with the UIKit theme this morning and tweaking it.
It's called UIKit Classic and it's a nod to the Classic theme.
For me the Classic theme always sticks in my mind as being most definitively Processwire-ey because
It was my fist intro to PW I thought the colours were quite unique and like the mix of blue, pink and green. They're very distinctive and I'd hate for PW to look like just another WP install. In a crowded CMS marketplace I think it's good to differentiate visually. The two screengrabs are just the same screen. A before and an after.
I put this together using the Chrome the web inspect tool so there's no fancy mixins or LESS etc. Actually there's not even any CSS now that I've refreshed the page.
I do think there needs to be a detailed comprehensive through tutorial for people wishing to make their own themes. Probably 85% here don't need it and understand the directory structure and how it's all compiled but equally I think there's another 15% here with the design skills but not the tech chops to get this done. If we want designers to design themes then we need the process with screengrabs, list of software (I have CodeKit, Dreamweaver, Sublime etc).
Anywho - just my 2€ worth
The before shot below...
yesterday evening I started playing with the new uikit admin theme and I have to say I really like the way @ryan has developed it, it's relatively easy to modifiy it further.
It took me around 10 minutes to prepare the development pipeline (from installation, setup the build processes and grasp the directory structures), so I highly encourage every designer in here to get their hand dirty and start without any fear
I'm going to post in this thread my progresses, since my will is to dedicate every evening 1 hour or so with the purpose to release a visually pleasing and stable admin theme.
If you want to post your progresses in this thread too, you're welcome!
Hi everyone, I'd like to start a conversation about your view and practices for profitable web design and development (unless there is already one that I didn't find). I use ProcessWire for most of my sites currently.
Wherever I look though I can see plenty of web design freelancers and even larger agencies running exclusively on WordPress and themes. Many people are running "web design" businesses even without any development skills. There are just so many that I started to doubt if that's the way to go.
- Do you use Wordpress + themes to cut cost and increase your bottom line? If yes, what is the middle ground? Is it worth to put up with WP?
- If not, what alternatives you use for micro/small businesses?
- And finally, how do you use ProcessWire to speed up small, basic brochure websites?
Clients care more about budget and results than "custom" design. I love working with ProcessWire but only if it doesn't mean lost opportunities.
Any opinions are welcome, especially from those of you who are advocates for themes yet are skilled developers.
