I'd like to take the opportunity to let our readers know of a current open conversation about the future of Joomla's User Interface, or UI as it's commonly referred to, and invite everyone to share their input should they wish to.
Some of you may already know of Kyle Ledbetter's work over the last few months to bring modern standardization to the Joomla admin interface, an effort that many of us are very grateful he began. For a peek, take a look at the screenshot above - yes, that's a possible Joomla admin interface!
Due largely in part to Kyle's efforts to incorporate the popular Twitter Bootstrap framework for use in standardizing the UI and presenting a set of tools for developers, Joomla's Production Leadership Team (PLT) has asked of the larger community what their desires and preferences for the adoption of an underlying framework be.
I invite you to read what Kyle has written in a summary of his overall goeals, and to head over to the JUI forum discussion to share your input.
We've started a little survey on our Facebook Page, please take a minute of your time to answer and to see what everyone else is using.
