    Question Showcase with 'different styles'

    Showcase with 'different styles'


    Hi,

    We have been using Ext for about 4 months now. We started out by using it mainly in the 'back' of our applications. Since we have now gained in experience we want to user it more in the front end. Here is our biggest problem with that.

    "Ext 'feels' great but Ext 'looks' too techy"

    Customers that want 'functional' website don't mind, they actually love it but customers that are looking for design sites don't like the way Ext looks, they do however love the way it feels, so....

    We would like to create Ext 'skins' that have a much more 'arty' (for lack of a better word) look and feel. But, we are a bit overwhelmed by the number of styles in Ext. So I guess what I am looking for is examples. Can people point me in the direction of websites that have used Ext and that don't resemble the original. What I hope to get from that is a 'How to ' approach to customizing the look of Ext.

    With such an approach I hope to brief designers to come up with designs that fit Ext but have a different look, so that I can use more of it but stick to programming. In case my statement offended anybody, it wasn't meant that way.

    Results of this exercise will be happily posted back.

    cheers,
    Aad

    I wish someone would dup the UI that adobe is using in the CS3 suite. I find it interestingly similar to Apple's Cocoa but a tad better (IMO)

    Am is mistaken? but the blog is not written in Ext (or is it?) and do you refer to the samples and demo's when talking about examples & extras or am i missing something ...
