For some time now, we’ve been working on the Sandbox skin
for CubeCart V4. When we set out to develop this skin, we were aiming for something that would be beautifully simple – both in terms of design and code. Over the last few days, I’ve been looking through the code as the finishing touches were made. Here’s a run-down of what we’ve accomplished:
- Clean, coherent, readable, lightweight code
- DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself) approach
- Single core stylesheet – no conditional comments
- Very few images
- Sensible typography
- ShopDev’s proven checkout layout
This really is looking very promising. Whilst we’ve been using light code, we haven’t forgot about the features you all love! The Sandbox skin uses our Dynamic Image Scaling script. The Popular Products listinging are now accompanied with images. Our intelligent collapsible side boxes and AJAX Add To Cart features are, of course, included as standard. Finally, as you would expect, the skin can be installed without touching a single line of PHP.
This is really the last opportunity to propose any final alterations, feature inclusion etc. After we have run the skin through a number of different browsers, it will be released. As always, there will be a very limited introductory offer (for the 1st 5 licenses purchased only). Be sure to register for our newsletter and visit ShopDev frequently. They always go very quickly!
