Admin Designer Toolkit
The initial idea was to speed AdminFaces development but it turns out that it can easy
contributions from non Java developers (like designers and frontend developers) as the project is about front end components and layout.
Also another great feature of Admin Designer is the possibility to download the customized project as a maven project.
The downloaded project is the Admin Starter with modified admin theme and template embedded in the project.
First download Admin Designer from github releases here;
Now in application root directory start it by running the command:
./mvnw thorntail:run (or mvnw.cmd thorntail:run) (1)
mvnw(maven wrapper) you just need Java installed (JAVA_HOME pointing to a
Edit any less file in directory
Now to compile the application using:
./mvnw compile (or mvnw.cmd compile)
Finally when you’re done you can download the customized
templatepacked as jar files or even download it as a zipped maven project;
The changes made to less files should be visible in running application
||There is no need to stop and run the application again.|
