UI Development


I’m a new Vaadin user. It’s a pleasure to see a good and simple framework to develop Web Applications!!

One thing i would know is if i can develop my app without any “desing” and later (by an external person) add the desing with only CSS and without modify the code. As far as i’ve reached, it could be done with customlayout, is right? is easy? how much time does it cost to adapt a PSD design to the customlayout css?

Sorry about these “generic” questions!!


It can be done with CustomLayout, but also with CssLayout. I would prefer the latter, because it doesn’t require you to write any HTML. Make sure you add meaningful style names to all your components, though! That will make creating the CSS much easier than otherwise.

As to whether it’s easy or how much time it takes: It depends™. (:
