I am content to finally see this project coming to life. I have been working on and improving Lubith since 2007 and of course, it has been through different stages and changes. Now you can find Lubith in its current form on lubith.com. I hope you find it useful.
Lubith came to life because of my desire to optimize my work as a web programmer. I wanted to find a faster way to create layouts for web sites according to the graphic provided by the web designer. I had a browse for solutions on the internet but the instruments I found were not good enough. On these grounds I decided to spend some time in creating Lubith’s first version, which was very simple. I could change the width and height of the main elements, colors, fonts, and others, and only in one form. Lubith would automatically take on the specified background’s images from a folder. According to the dates given my first version of Lubith would generate a WordPress theme, hence my work was 90% done. I just had to make little adjustments. This turned out to be fantastic because I only had to spend little time on creating a theme!
Acknowledging that I might not be the only one in need of such an instrument I started working on a much better version which is available to the public now. I held on to the idea of a browser application as it is ideal to create your own layout right there where it functions. Moreover, this will lead to a broader and easier availability as it can run on many operating systems.
Lubith finds itself still in beta stage, a lot of options were inserted and it is still possible to encounter some bugs. Please send me feedback. I prefer constructive feedback to critique so that I can improve this great application from which we shall all benefit.
