Joomla 3.8 Update

Hey guys, the last few days we were hard at work on updating all our Joomla templates!
We just released a new version of each and every template which includes the latest version of the particles, some minor bug fixes, some important Accessibility (WGAC 2.0) improvements (thank you Lisa and Giora), some new features, the latest stable version of UIkit (2.27.4) and a bunch of other cool things!

We also updated the Quickstart packages so now they come with Joomla 3.8.1 and with the latest version of all extensions!

Gantry 5 Particles for Grav CMS

Last week we were hard at work in order to bring our platform-specific particles to Grav CMS. By "platform-specific" we mean the particles that fetch platform content automatically. And to be more precise, the particles in question are Top News, News PRO, Accordion, Content PRO and Slideshow.

For those of you who don't already know, Grav is a pretty cool, simple and flexible file-based CMS developed by the same team (Rockettheme) that develops the Gantry 5 framework. If you have haven't tried it yet be sure to give it a try!

Delight - J2Store eCommerce Gantry 5 Joomla Template

We are very happy to announce the release of our very first and super powerful eCommerce template - Delight :)

This time we decided to do something different. Instead of focusing on the Gantry 5 stuff, as we usually do by developing new particles or extending the existing ones, we decided to focus on the Joomla stuff.

Djamil Legato - Lead Gantry 5 & Grav Developer

Hey guys, I've always wanted to get you in the "kitchen" of Gantry 5 so you can see the whole idea behind it, to see what it was in its early days and what its future development plans are.

By getting involved in the Gantry 5 project I had the chance to meet the Rockettheme team, to talk with them and learn many new things! Today I have the pleasure to meet you with Djamil Legato - a Lead Gantry 5 and Grav developer :)

Medical - Medical Gantry 5 Joomla Template

Hey guys, we just released our new template! We are very happy to present to you Medical - a modern, clean and perfectly coded Gantry 5 theme for Joomla!

In our industry there has always been a disunion about how the templates should be designed and developed. Some users want very targeted templates, designed for a very specific use case while others want more "broad designs" that can be used for many different niches and businesses.
Generally speaking, it is almost impossible to satisfy both types of users at the same time, but this is exactly what we tried to do with Medical!

Gantry 5 - Recommended Workflow

As most of you already know, the Gantry 5 framework is one of the most advanced, most properly coded and most awesome frameworks available on the Web. It is the first-ever platform-independent framework and it works on Joomla, WordPress and the Grav CMS.

But developing a true platform-independent framework is quite of a challange. The Gantry 5 developers (the awesome guys at Rockettheme) had to come up with the concept and with the architecture and in my opinion they did it in the best possible way! They had to standardize the different aspects of the platforms which is why you see things like "Particles", "Atoms" and so on.
