We're very pleased to announce the release of a new major overhaul of the Vaadin Sampler. The major improvements include: 1) Valo theme tweaking for each component 2) An improved navigation tree and 3) Sampler now supports mobile and tablet navigation.

A lot of sweat and love has gone into Sampler but we'd love to hear your thoughts at this point. What do you think? 

Check it out at http://demo.vaadin.com/sampler/

The collapsibe menu toolbox is awesome. How did you do it? Where can I find the source?

Well, I guess I'll be the grumpy one: it's a very beautiful piece of coding and you should be quite proud of it. However, once we acknowledge the skill required to create that sampler, we're still left with our initial questions: what is Vaadin, what does it look like, what can it look like, what does the code look like to do what I'm looking at?   And I'm sorry to say that all these questions were answered better by the Vaadin 6 sampler. Yes, it looks prosaic, even frumpy, but it's easier to navigate to the information you want, the code samples are large enough that you can get them working on your own machine, and there are more examples per widget. Oh, and you can see the various widgets displayed in different themes. Does the new sampler even mention themes? I have to say that when I need to learn about a widget I haven't used before I still go to the Vaadin 6 sampler first, then the new sampler to see if anything has changed, then The Book to get the details.

Regarding themes, I guess you didn't noticed gear icon in upper right when you select sample widget. There is source also, and property editor makes demo more interactive. On the other hand you are right for this "greater picture" part, but perhaps that wasn't idea anyway. Take look at the Valo themes demo, in my opinion it completes this one and it has source.

Hi,

The main demo page was updated recently, and now has the Valo demo. The older theme demos (which were still running some ancient Vaadin version) were dropped since Valo is the thing we want to promote from now on and encoureage everyone to start using eventually.

About the source code examples in Sampler, I took a note of that and perhaps you could in the future click the truncation marks (…) to expand and see the whole source.

It was just an enhancement idea that maybe it might be an option that you could expand the truncated sections of the source. It's not implemented yet, just to clarify.

And yes, if we end up doing that, in that case it should be indicated somehow better that you can expand those lines (an explicit help text might work).

Thanks for the feedback!
