Frontend redesign with Chilid
Together with **Chilid** design agency, we have some great news for you. Sylius will get a completely new look.
Frontend redesign with Chilid

I hope you are already excited – because I am! Some say that Sylius code is beautiful, but when you look
at its storefront, it does not look very tempting.

While developers are keen to try it, convincing business people to use
yet another Twitter Bootstrap-looking application is not that easy.

Together with Chilid Agency, we decided to change this!

2 Responsive Themes

Yes, you have read it right! We are working on two standard themes for Sylius.

There is still a lot of work, but we can already show you early prototypes of store frontpage.

First template, will be well-suited for established stores with many categories and products.
By default, it contains a lot of space for marketing and promotions.
There is a dedicated section for blog articles, as well as multiple banner spots.

Please note that we are using Symfony CMF blocks system and I plan to integrate create.js for inline editing of the frontend.
Store moderator will be able to easily add, edit and remove any type of block.

About Chilid

Chilid is Responsive Web Design Agency from Poland. They help us because of their love to technological craftsmanship and close cooperation with Symfony developers.

Theming Support

As some of you may remember, we already have a theming bundle, but it requires some love to fit the needs we have now.

  • Theme inheritance support
  • Templates editing via web interface
  • Theme configurations
  • Smooth assets installation
  • Different theme providers (local, api)

What is next?

In the next blog post from the redesign series, I will show you more prototypes for mobile and tablets.

Thank you Chilid for being part of this community. Stay tuned for more exciting news!
