Satorii yet Another WordPress Theme based on Yahoo! UI

This Satorii is created by Felipe Lavín Z. and I found it out while searching the google. In theory this theme is close to YUIBlog.com owned YUI Autogrid Minimal that had been around on the Internet for some time.

What I want to do here is to introduce the theme to this “YUI-based WordPress theme development” project

Due to the Arrival of YUI3, I have chosen to continue using YUI2 CSS Grids Layout

I can say that my favourite Yahoo! User Interface (YUI) version 3 or YUI3  has finally arrived. This makes me think what is going to happen with all my work based upon YUI2 grids and javascripts?

I looked into the possibilities of moving foward in line with the progress of YUI itself, but I have come to conclusion that my YUI2 CSS Grids is still needed. One reason is that YUI2 CSS Grids are more familiar to me, and secondly because it has easier way of controlling the layout. Let’s say if I want to make it two sidebars on the left, or on the right, or total page 750px or 950px, it is not very difficult, I am already familiar with it. A third reason is that other people have done some work on implementing YUI Grids into WordPress theme.

When I stand with YUI3 and look at YUI2 then for me it apperas to me that YUI3 is doing better or more robust in its javascript platform rather than its CSS Grids/ or stylesheets. That is why I told YUI3 that I will only use her javascripts, but not the CSS Grids, because I still love YUI2 CSS Grids and I think YUI3 CSS Grids are less interesting for me. Less interesting because they whole concept of grids has changed. It is not only because the names of the grids are totally new, but also they appear not so tidy and easy to control as in YUI2.

I don’t own YUI by the way, therefore, I think actually I do not have any choice left, except make use of YUI2 at the moment, but start thinking and taking steps for using YUI3 for both javascripts and CSS Style-sheets.

I hope YUI people are around and will give their opinions on this. My question now is: “Can I still use YUI CSS Grids until forever?” Or in other words, “Can I still call YUI2 library at their original URLs, or should I change to new URLs?”

I hope anybody who reads this will at least comment on this.

 

Thank you

YUI Based and Multicoloured "raindrops" WordPress Theme

The description of this theme says it all:

This theme file has the automatic arrangement of color function in specifying the layout customizing function and the reference color by Yahoo User Interface. The color can specify the tradition color and the American tradition color of Japan by the name. An automatic arrangement of color and the layout can be changed to the expression who you further seem by your instruction.

This theme was tagged:

Tags:black, blue, gray, brown, green, orange, pink, purple, red, silver, tan, white, yellow,dark,light,one-column,two-columns,three-columns,four-columns,left-sidebar,right-sidebar ,fixed-width ,flexible-width, custom-colors, custom-header, custom-background, custom-menu, editor-style, theme-options, threaded-comments, sticky-post, translation-ready, post-formats, featured-images

When I tried to implement this theme, it is pretty complicated as it has its own framework that could not help me to adapt it to my favourite “Hybrid” WordPress Theme by Justin Tadlock.
