Slimmer and faster version of the vaadin-themes jar

This is an "alternative build" of the awesome Valo theme introduced in Vaadin 7.3. It can be used as a direct replacement in your Vaadin app for the artifact com.vaadin:vaadin-themes.

Relevant changes to the basic Valo theme:

  • Loads FontAwesome font from bootstrapcdn
    • loads faster (most likely cached by your browsers) and spends less bandwidth on your server
  • Loads Open Sans font from Google Fonts
    • loads faster (most likely cached by your browsers) and spends less bandwidth on your server
  • Leaves out heavy font files and old legacy stuff from the jar file
    • saves ~ 7 MB of your war file size
    • deploys faster

In addition to the default "valo" theme there is now "dawn-pro", which has smaller fonts and margins, suitable for applications with lots of data or components on the screen.

As stated above, you can also remove (or exclude if drawn in transitively ) the dependency to com.vaadin:vaadin-themes.

Builds distributed via Vaadin Directory. See sidebar for proper repository setting.

Planned features aka TODO:

  • CDN distribution of the whole theme, with separate even slimmer module that just adds details about the location of the theme
  • Couple of alternative pre-built Valo variations:
    • dawn-dark
    • dawn-pro-dark

History

Previously (until version 3) this add-on provided a preliminary build of the Valo theme for older 7.x versions.
