PrimeUI 2.0 Released

PrimeUI, the offspring of PrimeFaces is now available with a brand new release. PrimeUI is a pure CSS-JS library consisting of jQuery plugins and has no dependency to any other server side or client side technology. Backing server technology could be jsp, php, asp.net mvc, spring mvc, jax-rs or similar and at client side can be used with a js mv* framework like angular, ember, knockout.

New release brings major improvements starting with the all-new website;

Website

Old showcase was outdated and we’ve adapted the showcase of PrimeFaces for PrimeUI. All demos, documentation and resources are available at the new showcase.

New Widgets

In total there are 40 widgets, new ones are;

  • DataGrid: Displays data in a responsive grid where data can be a local javascript array or remote json data.
  • ToggleButton: Used to select a binary value using a button ui.
  • Messages: Used to display inline messages with a severity, summary and detail.

New Icons

This is a feature that is even not available in core PrimeFaces, we’ve replaced all png icons with nice scalable font-awesome icons. End result is the modern and slick looking iconset for the widgets.

Responsive

Most widgets receive built-in responsive features derived from our latest work on PrimeFaces. Grid CSS is also now available in PrimeUI.

Maintenance

We’ve done general refactoring on widgets and fixed various reported issues. General jQuery stack is also updated to latest versions.

License

Just like PrimeFaces, all widgets are open source under Apache License 2.0, code is hosted at GitHub.

Roadmap

In addition to the flagship PrimeFaces, PrimeTek has decided to launch a two new products based around PrimeUI foundation by the end of the year. Goal is to bring the Prime widgets to different programming models. There is PrimeFaces already for component oriented approach for Java EE, one of the new projects will focus on an action oriented MVC model for a server side framework and second one will be adapters for a javascript MV* framework. Both of these two new projects will be adapters of PrimeUI with extensions. PrimeUI itself will be constantly updated in parallel. So exciting times ahead for PrimeFaces, its sibling PrimeUI and the upcoming two new Prime* projects.

PrimeFaces Elite 5.2.4 Released

PrimeFaces 5.2.4 is now available featuring the responsive design enhancements for various PrimeFaces components along with regular maintenance. With the introduction of PrimeFaces Premium Layouts such as Sentinel, Spark and Ronin that are fully responsive, we had to improve the responsiveness of components themselves so that they fit in nicely within the layouts. Some components have built-in support such as reflow mode of datatable or responsive charts, in 5.2.4 there is a new wrapper ui-fluid style class that helps components to efficiently use the page space.

There are basically 3 elements in creating a responsive web application; Main Layout, Grid Layout and components themselves. Although we had solutions for the first two, the last responsive components needed to be improved and that is what we’re working on now.

  • Main Layout -> PrimeFaces Premium Layouts
  • Grid Layout -> Grid CSS
  • Responsive Components -> .ui-fluid, built-in responsive attributes

Online demo is available at PrimeFaces Showcase. Until 5.3, we’ll keep improving other components that are not yet fully responsive and provide them in 5.2.x Elite Releases.
