Introducing ExtizeMe

I am humbly introducing the alpha preview of ExtJS WordPress theme Version 2.0a. The theme has changed its name;  its ExtizeMe. To preview the theme click its logo below. If you have JavaScript enabled in your browser you will see this site changing the layout.

What is ExtizeMe

ExtizeMe, basically, is a WordPress theme. It makes heavy use o JavaScript. Everything: layout, behavior, and look&feel need JavaScript to work. If a user browser does not have JavaScript enabled, ExtizeMe displays itself as plain HTML theme.

Current features

  • ExtizeMe is SEO-Friendly; web crawlers see it as plain HTML websites, while users with modern browsers can use advanced, dynamic interface;
  • ExtizeMe has two modes: full and preview. In preview mode, people can switch between JavaScript and HTML layout. Full mode does not allow for such a choice;
  • ExtizeMe has currently one sidebar, accordion layout;
  • ExtizeMe has 6 CSS skins which are actually Ext JS themes;
  • There are more

Credits

ExtizeMe uses:

  • Ext JS library version 2.2.1;
  • Ext.ux.ManagedIFrame by Doug Hendricks;
  • Ext.util.MD5 by wm003.

Thank you all for your fantastic work. Without it, I would not be able to realize my odd idea.

This release

This release is not intended for usage by bloggers, it requires additional work. This is just a preview that shows how WordPress and Ext JS can work together.

The rest

The rest will take place after my two-week vacation.

ExtizeMe is here for download

Again, what is ExtizeMe

ExtizeMe, is a WordPress theme written mostly in JavaScript. Layout, behavior, and look&feel are made with Ext Js Library (https://www.sencha.com/). What makes ExtizeMe there different from other themes is:

  • Accordion sidebar;

  • Picture preview;
  • ExtJs skins;

ExtizeMe Bookmarklet

You can find ExtizeMe bookmarklet on the ExtizeMe options page. Add the bookmarklet to your favorites and execute it while browsing a WordPress powered page. In theory, it should extify the site. Take a look on below screencast.

ExtizeMe on google code

I would describe current stage of ExtizeMe as experimental. I am releasing it because, as a father of two and full-time employee, I feel I am not able to finish it in predictable time. It is a pity. This is the link to ExtizeMe project home at google: http://code.google.com/p/extizeme/.

If there is someone out there who can be spent his/her time improving the ExtizeMe, please let me know.
