Hi all,

As pointed out by Michael, maybe the newly created skin for the WUI belongs in this mailing list as opposed to development (actually makes sense).
I’ve used bootstrap and in the history I can find some argumentation to use CSS-grid instead, due to bootstrap being bloated. While this is true, it’s still very responsive and it’s possible to remove quite a lot from it, however that will require re-work. Not saying that a CSS-grid implementation won’t require some re-work to achieve the same result. I have not formed an opinion on the matter, but since I knew bootstrap, I went with that.

Let me introduce myself, for those not in the development list. I’m Rachid Groeneveld a tinkerer with some programming/scripting skills, mostly C# I must admit. Anyways, I like the IPFire project a lot, I’ve been using it for over a year now; started out on a Banana Pi R1 and recently moved to an APU2 (best choice to date). I was missing some functionality in the WUI (OpenVPN client) and I like the adminlte design, which made me decide to contribute to the project to see if I could implement both. While the first was only kicked off, the second proved to be more realistic. I could find a few earlier attempts, but none of the sources were available anymore ☹

  2.  Concept redesign: https://dribbble.com/shots/2076375-IPFire-Redesign-Concept (full image: https://dribbble.com/shots/2076375-IPFire-Redesign-Concept/attachments/372604) by Maurice Ge

So I got excited and thought: why not give it a shot? There is obviously still room for improvement and the colors don’t match (note: I am by no means a front-end developer, I like to tinker with the back-end more). So in order to allow people to complement the skin and make sure it doesn’t get lost in a long forgotten mail thread, I decided to post it on github for the world to see (and use): https://github.com/Saiyato/ipfire-skin-dashboard

It shouldn’t feature too many hard-coded (hard-scripted) fields anymore, feel free to point them out or create a PR to fix them.
