Valo's claim to fame is that it is built to be adjustable and easy to morph just a few lines of Java and/or CSS code. Has any one experimented with ? Any source code or instructions to share?
I do not want to learn how to make groovy/cool/artsy changes to the theme. I'm looking simply for the easiest and safest way to get the Valo widgets’ size under control.
In the short term, I will continue to override the default to use Reindeer, as described on this StackOverflow.com Question. But longer term, the Vaadin team is betting big on Valo. Eventually Reindeer will fall out of favor, so I would like to learn how to transition.
