Enlightenment's Edje Has A Nice, Easy-To-Use Theme Editor Under Development
A easy-to-use, graphically-driven theme editor for Enlightenment's EFL Edje is under development.
Edje is the library within the Enlightenment realm that seperates the UI from the application and allows for skinning the UI to easily change the GUI of Enlightenment applications. For encouraging skinning of apps and making it easier to handle, Eflete is under development as a new Enlightenment program to serve as a theme editor for Edje.
A Phoronix reader, Vincent Torri, wrote in recently to share news of this theme editor under development that hasn't received much attention to date. A YouTube video about the editor explains, "The reason for making this application is to simplify and accelerate the process of creating and editing style for the widget. One of the reasons - it EDC, not everyone wants to learn it. Eflete designed to simplify the development on the new widget styles, the target user is not only programmer, designer too. Besides styles Eflete can create and edit custom layouts. This feature will be useful for developers who creates the layouts for his application."
Here's the Eflete demo video:
The code to the Eflete theme editor for Enlightenment can be obtained via Enlightenment.org Git.
