Some Features...


Using the most stable and best HTML5 and CSS3 features the theme is what wraps your application. Standard elements are used, in other words, there is no need to learn endless classes to make your application look consistent on every page. Just type HTML in your view as you know it.

It’s extremely easy to create your own theme, and it is 100% customizable to have a theme for your next application or website exactly how you would like it.

Using 1KB Grid, we offer the simplest solution to do complicated layouts without using tables using the standard cloud theme. You are free to choose whatever CSS frameworks (if any) you like when designing your own theme.

JQuery Skins

On top of themes you can give color to your theme and widgets with skins.

Make your theme seamlessly integrate and feel the same as Jquery widgets. The default theme comes with over 25 preset skins for those developers who prefer to develop rather then design. You can even create your own skins within minutes using the JQuery Theme Roller.

You also have the power to wrap your skins inside the theme you design yourself. This powerful themes then gets extended and wrapped around your views. There really is no theme or layout you wont be able to create.
