Material + Bootstrap + Larry: Mabola Skin for Roundcube
« on: December 13, 2015, 03:42:39 AM »
Mabola is a clean and usable skin for latest Roundcube Webmail (http://roundcube.net). Is based on Material Design, Bootstrap and inherits from Larry Skin, so there should be no unstyled content. There are still some things to be fixed, like flashing messages and hovering buttons but right now is very usable.

Update: This skin is developed and tested on Roundcube 1.2 beta version

It supports Threecol plugin. Check it out at EstudioNexos/threecol. Icons are from https://github.com/laclasse-com/roundcube_laclasse_skin.

Mabola can be downloaded (and contributed) from Github https://github.com/EstudioNexos/mabola/

You can read motivation and watch more screenshots at http://www.estudionexos.com/mabola-skin-for-roundcube.html

Thanks to all other projects like LaClasse.com, Material Design by Google and of course Roundcube.

We are planning to make some color variations and would like to get some opinion on this.

Wow! Nice work, I really like this skin!
The skin color is great, I think the text of the taskbar might be a little more readable
There is some icons problems (use of larry icons) in contacts view but everything else works fine.
Why are you using bootstrap ? Have you plan any reponsive design features ?
I think the threecol plugin need a little rework, the horizontal display isn't ideal, it should be build on mobile displays to the message list

hello

i'd like to use this theme for the threecol layout. But threecol is not working for me (on this or any theme)

My roundcube changelog says i'm using RELEASE 1.1.4.

I noticed threecol has a few different releases, compatible with different versions of roundcube. Not sure which one to use:

https://github.com/tofi86/Roundcube-Plugin-Threecol-Layout/branches
https://github.com/tofi86/Roundcube-Plugin-Threecol-Layout/releases
https://github.com/tofi86/Roundcube-Plugin-Threecol-Layout

I also noticed threecol instructions say to add threecol to $rcmail_config['plugins'] array in config.inc.php, but my config.inc.php does not contain that parameter-- my file contains $config['plugins'] .

Well, i uploaded both the following to my plugins folder:

Roundcube-Plugin-Threecol-Layout-0.4
Roundcube-Plugin-Threecol-Layout-master

And i put both the following into my roundcube config.inc.php:
Code: [Select]
$config['plugins'] = array('threecol');
$rcmail_config['plugins'] = array('threecol');

But i'm still not seeing a three col layout, and i'm not seeing a three col option in settings (maybe i'm looking in the wrong place?)

Can someone share steps to install threecol to this theme, with correct threecol release and config settings?

Is Composer or some other plugin-manager required for threecol on this theme?

thx!

It's the prettiest skin i've seen.

I made a blue version of Mabola if anyone is interested : https://github.com/Bagu/mabola/

I submitted a small correction for button's text.
And i have one user who said there is square in left column in replacement of é or è (i can't reproduce the problem on my computer)

Thank you!

Did not have time to setup your blue version. Anyway, any ideas on how to implement a theme variation? or just creating different themes like: blue-mabola, red-mabola, etc?

We will make some diffs to add your fixes. Thanks again.

Hi and thanks!

We will have a look at your suggestions.

There are some larry icons issue and also alerts are still ugly. We will notify here when this is fixed.

Threecol plugin is a nasty hack, Three column view should be addressed at core (me thinks)
If it works for you right, else do not use. Just a reminder: Download "good" Threecol plugin from our fork at https://github.com/EstudioNexos/threecol

Cheers

Hi,

I can assure to you that our fork of threecol plugin works with Roundcube Beta and this theme Mabola and can be found at
https://github.com/EstudioNexos/threecol

which is a fork (untouched) from:
https://github.com/t3chguy/Roundcube-Plugin-Threecol-Layout

that fixes the original plugin that doesn't work at:
https://github.com/tofi86/Roundcube-Plugin-Threecol-Layout

If you can please post screenshots of what is broken or any explanation apart from "doesn't work" or terminal or console logs of issues while installing of configuring we will gladly look into it.

We do not why we do not receive notifications of this forum via email, so please set issues at https://github.com/EstudioNexos/mabola/issues

Anyway we try to check here at roudcubeforum.net weekly or so.

Hi all,

This skin looks great. I'm very new to roundcube, so if someone could help me how to install this skin "mabola blue", i would much appreciate it.

I would like to use blue mabola skin and threecol.

I put this in main.inc.php:

$rcmail_config['skin'] = 'mabola-blue-master';

and i also have this in main.inc.php:

// List of active plugins (in plugins/ directory)
$rcmail_config['plugins'] = array('password', 'new_user_dialog', 'serverinfo', 'http_authentication');

$config['plugins'] = array('threecol');
$rcmail_config['plugins'] = array('threecol');

Mabola-blue-master is uploaded and exported to skins, and threecol to plugins.

I keep getting Service currently not available - Error No. [501].

Thank you very much for help,

Kind regards,
Matija

Hi matija385,

You have to down load and uncompress two skins at skins folder: mabola and mabola-blue
Mabola-blue requieres Mabola or else won't work.
Folders have to have this name or else won't work: "mabola" and "mabola-blue"

You don't need to write this except if you want it to be default skin for all users:
>> $rcmail_config['skin'] = 'mabola-blue-master';

And it should be:
>> $rcmail_config['skin'] = 'mabola-blue';

Remove threecool plugin and first make sure skin is working. After that come back and tell us what log/errors says when activating threecol plugin.

Cheers

hi n3storm,

Thank you for your quick reply.

I followed your instructions, but again get error 501.

Now i have two folders in skins - mabola and mabola-blue. threecol removed.

I entered in main.inc.php:

// skin name: folder from skins/
$rcmail_config['skin'] = 'mabola-blue';

Hi,

ok, let's make the skin work first.

What version of roundcube are you using?

What version of php5 is installed on server?

Error 501 is a bit strange for intalling a skin: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_HTTP_status_codes#5xx_Server_Error

Can you access server logs? like apache error.log, nginx error.log or php-fpm logs?
We need to know why server answers 501 exactly.

Cheers
