Theme editor for RAP

Revision as of 08:38, 27 April 2010 by (Talk | contribs) (Primary goals)

Project Lead: Benjamin Muskalla (IRC: benny`work)

Mentor: Rüdiger Herrmann

This project is part of the Google Summer of Code 2010


The theming infrastructure of RAP experienced several enhancements over the past two release cycles. Currently users of RAP have to struggle with the CSS-based theme files with a simple text editor in order to create sophisticated themes. The editor should support general features like content assist for elements, selectors and states. In addition, more advanced features as a quick outline or custom widget integration should be part of the editor.
