It’s not a secret that I’m working on a new Roundcube theme. It’s supposed to provide a responsive interface for desktop, tables and phones. With help of Thomas Bruederli, who provided some early mockups and John Jackson, who provided some design ideas, and a few other helping hands, after nine months of work it’s starting to look close to what I’ve imagined.
We choose to base it on Bootstrap and Font Awesome. Hopefully Bootstrap 4 and Font Awesome 5 will be available and stable soon, so the “framework” is up to date with recent standards and gives us a pretty and usable user interface.
The theme is not ready yet. I wouldn’t even call it a beta. As for now I’ve been focusing on general layout and navigation. There’s still a lot to do especially on details. I encourage everyone to give it a try and create tickets for bugs on github. As I’m mostly working on this alone, any help from developers or graphic and UX designers will be greatly appreciated.
KolabNow customers can already test the theme live, thanks to KolabNow Beta Programme. And here’s a few screenshots for everyone else.
And here’s how it looks like on a phone.
