    Default Is there something like this www.alpha-bootstrap.com for sale?

    Is there a new homepage for this product? May I kindly request for a link for a similar product like www.alpha-bootstrap.com for sale?
    I wish alpha can build something like this, or styling of the Tabbedui etc and include this on their future updates
    Thanks!

    I think as a community we need to build something for ourselves. Common project for everyone to use and contribute too is only going to benefit all. I think its too much work if it comes down to a few people and this is when one needs to charge money for it.

    Simple: Post your style with a few sample images of what it looks like. While being able to import a boot-strap theme would be nice and a pretty good time saver we can already share styles and importing them shoudl work just super.

    Michael Cornford has done some really nice looking layouts. I think Alpha should buy one of his templates and provide it to customers who have an annual contract. The styles that come out of of the box for web applications are really dated.

    Take a look at this example of a tabbed UI. Expand the System menu and try each child node.

    We should setup a public repo on github for the community to pull and push themes to their projects. Would anyone use it don't know? (I would contribute).

    We are trying to build a framework, there are a number of complications.

    I personally believe Bootstrap is the wrong way to go with Alpha.
    The power of Alpha is often negated by Bootstrap.
    Alpha works with containers, while containers are Div's with a little extra, they allow controls to be simply laid out.
    In Bootstrap you need to use Div's then position Alpha controls this way causes a trade-off.
    I think it would be hard to take a bootstrap CSS stylesheet and not have conflicts with class names trying to find these conflicts is a major task.
    The last reason is probably the most relevant, the world has moved on from 12 column grids. CSSGrid allows any number of columns you need and the syntax is simple.
    So if you wanted a 5 column display followed by a 7 column display it would be challenging in Bootstrap. Using CSSGrid and flexbox it is just a few lines of CSS.

    We intend to sell our framework (So far we have invested more than 1,000hrs) so we would not load it into a free repository. However, in principle, we would be happy to explain how we had achieved certain things.

    Here is an example of CSSGrid plain Html

    Here is a full page featured in the video.

    This is using Alpha and Flexbox.

    Great stuff Micheal, It is no doubt flex box is the way to go. Bootstrap 4 uses a optin flexbox approach and is going to use Sass rather then Less

    Yes, Bootstrap is something we use a lot but in the end, Alpha does not play nicely.

    Flexbox is great for a row but CSSGrid is awesome for laying out complex areas. Flexbox and CSSGrid are designed to work together.

    Does anyone have any stylesheets for sale at the moment? Links in this thread are not working.

    Michael Cornford passed away in 2018. He was a pioneer of CSS styling with Alpha. I haven't heard if anyone picked up where he left off. I attached an image of what he did for my application. You can't look at it and tell that it's done with Alpha Anywhere.

    It’s difficult to believe this is not a priority for AA, the lesson Apple’s shown everyone is detail to presentation matters to customers and developers.

    I have a template available via https://iadn.com/store.a5w that enhances the alpha styling. Not sure if that is what you might be looking for ?

    Ben,

    Do you have the full CSS for this, did you amend the tabbedUI?

    I am not using the tabbedUI. This is two grid controls linked together by code. The grid on the right has a horizontal scrollbar and the grid on the left acts like a frozen pane. I have all of the source code and CSS to this.
