It’s been 6 months since we wrote about Why we choose to get rid of Bootstrap and build our own framework. We’ve done a lot of work since we made this decision and we wanted to give you our feedback on that.
As we said before, we choose to leave Bootstrap behind us and build our Tuleap CSS framework called « TLP ». TLP provides many UI components, all tested with Chrome, Firefox and IE11 and available in 6 colors. Here's the full list of what is available as of today:
- Form elements (all types of inputs, select box, date pickers…)
A documentation sums up all available components and how to use them. This documentation is directly shipped with Tuleap sources.
Burning Parrot in Tuleap administration
We didn’t write our own framework just for fun. The goal was to provide all we needed to revamp the UI of Tuleap administration. So, during the Tuleap 9.1 release, we’ve « rebooted » the Tuleap administration with a new Tuleap theme called « Burning Parrot ». This new theme will soon be the only one theme available in Tuleap and has 6 variants of colors. Here are some screenshots of the new Tuleap administration.

Every page are based on the same patterns

Tuleap administration is just a small part of Tuleap. The next step is to provide the same user experience everywhere in Tuleap, this is why we are doing all the mockups needed. But we still need your help and the best thing you can do is to give us your feedback on Burning Parrot using the Tuleap mailing list.
