Pure.css Side Menu Theme

This is an alpha / in-development theme.

It currently lives in the this-wiki-themes/purecss-side-menu directory of the Massive Wiki Developer Wiki.

It uses Pure.css.

It was initially created by Peter Kaminski, by lightly adapting the Pure "side menu" layout.

Wishes and Issues

BUG: The bounding box for links in the sidebar is too tall, which means it's easy to for a click to go to the wrong link for links that are stacked right on top of one another.

Needs a "home page" template (which would need support in MWB).

Sidebar is very narrow for typical content; perhaps it should be wider.

Should there be a topbar on every page template for branding?

Needs examples of doing color theming / branding. Pure says, "We believe that it's much easier to add new CSS rules than to overwrite existing rules. By adding a few lines of CSS, you can customize Pure's appearance to work with your web project." It then links to Extend - build on top of Pure.

There should be better integration with Pure.css (some of which may require additional features in MWB):

  • Use the Pure.css menu/navigation classes in the sidebar.
  • Responsive images - "Add the .pure-img class name to an <img> element to make it scale with the viewport."
  • See if we can be clever and use Grids, Forms, Buttons, Tables.
