We want to sandstone elmo in bug 748781, but that's using quite a bit of jquery.ui.

It'd be nice for us, and probably other consumers of sandstone, to get some good defaults for jquery.ui theming.

The themeroller for jquery.ui would be the right tool for this, if we had a URL like (warning, anti-thesis), that'd be great help.

Not so much as a strict rule but as a good default.

Our particular interest would be for the stone variant.

Not strictly blocking sandstoning elmo, but marking the dependency anyway.

Hi Axel. To be honest, I'm having a hard time deciphering comment #0. Can you explain? And should this be a website bug instead of a design one?
Comment 2 User image Axel Hecht [:Pike] 2012-05-09 14:45:05 PDT
You can go to the theme picker and select color values and border radii etc to your liking, and then create those as a link like the one I gave, which people can use to either download the theme as is, or customize further.

I guess this is design, as it's choosing the right color combinations and borders etc to match the 3 palettes of sandstone.

Hi Axel.  Sorry but I'm still not entirely clear on what the ask is here :( I'm not very technical so if you can help articulate the ask in more simple terms and the scope for this design bug -  I'd be happy to help.  But i'm not entirely sure what I'm supposed to do here.

You're looking for default timing for animations? Or recommendations for which sort animations to use in which scenarios?
Comment 5 User image Axel Hecht [:Pike] 2012-10-11 09:51:57 PDT
Sorry, see, all I say is hell confusing. This bug isn't about timing.

It's more about choosing color schemes and border radii for jquery.ui in a way that makes that good to use in a sandstoned site.

Aha! I think I know exactly what you're asking now. :D

jquery has default CSS visual styles. Since these don't match Sandstone, we need to override them to spruce up the colors, border radii, possibly fonts also? 

Axel, can you post a screenshot of what the jquery ui defaults look like in context of Sandstone? Then the vizDs can see what we're working with.

a jquery.ui dialog

Wee, one down :-)

We don't have elmo sandstoned yet, so I don't have a live sandstone example. But this is a jquery dialog as we're currently using it on elmo, which is getting a sandstone design in bug .

The alternative would be to just screenshot, but I don't have a big-enough screen right now to help with that.

Steven, is this something you could help with? Feels like more in your area of expertise than mine (by a long shot).
Comment 9 User image Tara (musingt) 2012-12-03 15:27:54 PST
friendly ping.  Is this something we can close / redirect? Let me know... am trying to avoid outstanding idle bugs :)  Thanks!

I think a much more careful look at theming jquery UI elements in context is likely required, but for an absolute simple base starting point, I did run through the theme generator and try to tweak the defaults to be a bit more like Sandstone.;

Not that this should not be considered a finished Sandstone theme for jquery UI - it's just a starting point during development:
