PrimeTek is proud to announce the all-new nextgen Icarus application template featuring a responsive layout, 4 different themes, template pages and sass integration.
So what is nextgen? Reception to the Prime Premium Layouts and Themes have been well and met our expectations so we have decided to invest even more. We had a change in our team where our old designer has left the company and a new designer along with a new front end developer have joined us to strengthen the squad.
This change will allow us to shorten the time between new layouts because in the past design, html, css coding have been done by the same person which was a time consuming process. In new model our new designer does design and the front-end engineer is fully responsible with html, css, js coding. Separation of responsibilities allows our teammates to focus on a specific task rather than dealing with multiple tasks at the same time.
Also we’ve done some technical changes, these are;
- Use Sketch for design which is an awesome tool!
- Use new PrimeFaces Grid CSS instead of old containerX css for layouts
- Use SASS with scss syntax
- Smaller theme files, instead of styling each component individually, style global classes and add overrides, this shortens the compiled theme.css drastically.
- Cleaner and smaller html and css to avoid div soup
- Implemented everything from scratch basically
So we took our time to apply these best practices and created Icarus.
Nextgen doesn’t mean previous layouts won’t be maintained and supported, they will be for sure. As an example, tomorrow all 11 of them will be updated for PrimeFaces 6.0 support.
Icarus is optimized across different devices and screens.
Scss syntax of Sass is used to create the css of both layout and theme for easy customization.
Icarus provides 4 built-in themes and it takes a couple lines to create your own thanks to sass. Check out documentation for details.
Icarus provides ready to use template pages to get started with your apps in no time.
Online demo is available at Icarus Showcase.
Icarus is available for purchase at Prime Store.
It has been a busy 6 weeks from initiating the sketch design to the final product, special thanks to our designer Onur Şentüre, our front-end engineer Mertcan Diken and last but not least PrimeFaces core developer Mert Sincan aka Aragorn for their enormous work.
