As hinted earlier, today the Vaadin Pro team is happy to introduce Vaadin Board. It is an element for creating flexible responsive layouts very easily. No need to hassle with CSS, you just write plain declarative code.
Vaadin Board can be used to create dashboards, intro screens, image galleries or just to build application layouts, so they will look great on different devices. The main concept when designing the component was our motto: Fight For Simplicity. We were aiming for a very easy API and responsiveness working out of the box, where you divide your application into rows, and then fill rows with components. Rows may also include inner rows that allows you to create very customizable layouts easily.
Vaadin Board 1.0 release introduces a Web Components API. We are currently working on the Java API that brings these goodies for our fellow framework users. Java API release is expected to come out in June. Vaadin Board is commercially licensed and is available in both Pro and Prime subscriptions.
We will be happy to react to your feedback and plan our further development based on your comments and proposals. So please try it out and get back to us in the comments below. Also, we are happy to give out free licenses for first 20 that are willing to have a quick feedback call over Skype.
