YUI App Theme
A generic, skinnable layout for web applications built using YUI Grids. It's particularly well suited for admin areas. You'll find most of the standard UI elements are styled and ready for you to use: blocks, tabbed modules, tables, lists, one and two column forms, etc. Just explore the demo to see what's available. Pay particular attention to the theme and layout panels on the side. They'll let you preview alternate layouts and color schemes with one click.
This project is based on the great idea and design work done by the web-app-theme project on GitHub. We loved the concept and simplicity of their web app template but needed it to be built with YUI. So we decided to re-implement it ourselves.
The result is a clean, semantically structured layout built using YUI Grids. We hope you find it useful.
Here's an introductory blog post about the project.
And a live demo.
- Built on YUI Grids for easy customization and browser compatibility.
- Lightweight CSS ~10KB
To use, customize the HTML and CSS to suit your needs. You can safely remove the <script> references, as they're only used in the demo.
