We started working on Joomlatools UI during the development of DOCman 3. Our goal was to create a consistent user interface across all our Joomla extensions. So our developers can transfer their knowledge and skills from one extension to another.
With Joomlatools UI we set a new milestone in our goal to improve the life of any Joomla developer. We want to make it easier for developers to create user-centered Joomla extensions.
Joomlatools UI is more than a templating framework, it's also a set of guidelines. Built around a number of timeless principles for human-computer interaction. You can't just copy-paste anything anywhere.
- "App" feeling by leveraging CSS Flexible Box Layout.
- Built using modern methodologies like Atomic Design and BEM.
- Semantic markup, semantic elements are elements with a meaning.
