Tired of those default, and basic, jQuery themes? You like some parts of the jQuery UI Mobile design? Then Absolution gives you the answer with a beautiful jQuery Mobile inspired theme. It is designed to give you the same experience on your desktop and tweaked to the usual interface guidelines. Even Uniform elements are supported (Wijmo support is high on the wish-list)! And the best of it, it’s pure CSS3 powered!
Direct download: latest GitHub commit
Thanks to the possibility to access raw files from a gitHub public repository the components inside the demo dialogs are always using the latest version of the theme, which is in fact the latest commit done to the repository. Below you can find some demo dialogs which have been made both to preview and test the theme. Click on the thumbnails to go to the dialog demo. There is no actual functionality attached to the dialogs!
Apart from the dialogs, there is also the possibility to check out the, rather dirty, modified jQuery UI component page. It gives you a preview of the Absolution theme for every single component inside the default jQuery UI plugin.
Various applications and websites are now starting to use the Absolution jQuery UI theme. To give you an idea of the possibilities, we’ve added a selection below.
ChiMundo is a Google Maps mash-up created by Thomas De l’Arbre, Stefan Diels, Bart Bottu and myself for our course on user interfaces. It provides people with both the locality and time of news happening around the world. The Absolution theme is used throughout the complete interface. A video of the working application can be found here.
PipeWalk is a fun puzzle game which combines the ImpactJS game engine with beautiful styled jQuery UI buttons.
Download & Contribute
A gitHub public repository is being used to collaborate on the code and issues. We kindly advice you to take a look at the Absolution repository which contains all the source files. In the top right corner of the page you’ll find the ‘download’ button, which instantly provides you with the latest version of the Absolution theme. Or you could just download the latest commit here. You can also submit an issue or a patch on the gitHub project page and thus contribute to the further development of the theme.
I designed and coded this theme in my spare time, which I now and then like to spend having a drink. Keeping this hosting up also costs money. If you like the Absolution theme then think about contributing to it and maybe provide me with a drink, or an extra month of hosting by giving me a small donation through PayPal.
