A Stylesheet for a database app


#1

Hi to all, I’m a new subscriber of this list and a new user of RoR.
I’m looking for a stylesheet to make a simple database app nicer, a css
to
start working with.

I have to do some simple apps and I want them to be the more uniform on
the
presentation side.

I know I can do it for myself, but a nice stylesheet is not so easy to
perform
for a non-grafic geek like me, and so if I can find a good one to start
with,
I would be very happy and I can start developing the real thing very
soon.

Thanks in advance!

Find it in…
{RAILS_ROOT}/public/stylesheets/whatever.css
If I got your question right.
And then you can put in your designs there.

Look at the scaffold.css that should appear if you do a “ruby
script/generate scaffold Foo”. It’s not a bad starting point. There
is not a whole lot too it however.

I think you are maybe misunderstanding the capabilities of CSS. You
can’t just drop in a CSS file and have the page look like a Windows
XP app. You would need the HTML in the page to be structured in the
right way for the CSS file as well.

I think I did not explain my problem well.
I am looking for an already done stylesheet, to use with a standard
application.

I want to use rails as a framework without worrying about graphics (now)
,
like I can do developing a java or a QT || GTK app.
I need a good stylesheet because the standard html is not well suited
for
database interrogation and modification apps.

I just want to not start from scratch to build css styles for: forms,
tabs
(like desktop application), close window [x]

I think there’s already something like that, a stylesheet that simulates
a
desktop app (it’s not necessary to look exactly as a windows xp app, I
only
need to organize my app screens in a clean way).

It’s not necessary it’s suited for RoR, as it uses css standard files.

Check out the AJAX scaffolding rails plugin - it’s got a fairly general
approach.

Yes, but maybe a collection of css and view object in html should do the
trick…

Maybe someone has already written those lines, and want to share his
work with
a visual framework to help develop “desktop” apps.

Second that, it seems to be what Alessandro is looking for.

Yes, it seems.
I’ll try it, thanks for the help!

PS: if you find some other similar projects, please tell me.
