Post by rudi_br »

I'm aware, that phpBB 4 is still in the development phase - just curious to see what it will look and feel like.

Edit 20211101:

The link is: https://codepen.io/hanakin/pen/jvvGLj?editors=1100

Actually this site is the demo for phpbb4 to be accurate... That is an old demo for the new theme Chameleon. The most current demos can be found in my github here https://github.com/hanakin/chameleon/tr ... ests/views

It's a shame about the Chameleon project itself, unfortunately I'm in the position of having to say that I don't think it will see the light of day in time for the first release of phpBB 4, unless the developers want to postpone it indefinitely.

TBH, I think phpBB4 could be released with the current (more or less) Prosilver. Chameleon-based style, if ready during phpBB 4 times, could be attached later with some minor 4.x release (or even mark it 4.1 because of that if needed).
4.x needs some more work currently, mostly important as for me are implementing Doctrine and finishing extensions management system. Then it could be released as is.

it is very bad news for 4.0 , if we can't see new style. because many times dev team said to members "new style will arrive in 4.0".

i think:
mention system
doctrine
ext management

not enough for 4.0 even , it is good for 3.4.x
refactoring systems is remain ( viewtopic,viewonline,viewforum , ... )
revamp PM
instant update
chameleon project
acp new theme
maybe wysiwyg editor
style management
and ...

chameleon is more important than for 4.0, maybe we should give up this project and building two styles for default theme and acp base on bootstrap as mentions in others topic. this style ( bootstrap base ) can arrive to 4.0
chameleon can move to 5.x

example:

admin panel:

maybe if dev team decide about chameleon project , others people can dev new style base on something else, because now there is topics in phpbb.com about chameleon for 4.0
