What is included in the package?
Design & Usability
The YOOtheme Pro page builder is perfect for creating beautiful page layouts. It is a tool for developers who appreciate extensibility and clean, semantic code. With YOOtheme we can separate design work-flow from content management, using site-wide templates for the blog posts, categories, pages etc. It is built on top of the UIkit CSS framework, one of the most powerful font-end design frameworks. With YOOtheme everything is fully responsive and works perfectly on every device. The best image sizes are served automatically, even for high resolutions displays, and the latest technologies are used to reduce the time of the first meaningful paint of your website to provide a great user experience.
Here are some advantage of separating design from content:
- simplifying the content editing process
- reuse of data: the same content be presented differently in different contexts
- multiple output formats: different media (paper, online), different sizes (manuals, reports), different classes of output devices (workstations, hand-held devices)
- styles tailored to the reader’s preference (e.g., accessibility): simplified layout for audio readers
- changing styles site-wide: a new design can be applied to the content at any time
