OutSystems Style Guide for OutSystems Platform 4.0 released

Hello all!

I'm proud to announce the release of the OutSystems Style Guide for the OutSystems Platform version 4.0 and upper! This has been an ongoing effort, and now that it's here we are confident that it will help you in your everyday work by making your applications prettier, more usable, and faster to develop.

The Style Guide is available for download in http://www.outsystems.com/NetworkSolutions/ProjectDetail.aspx?ProjectId=6 . The download includes everything you need to get started right away, from the eSpace and it's dependencies to the documentation that details its usage.

There will also be some training sessions on this topic, and everyone is invited to attend. The first session will be held this Wednesday, December the 19th, from 14h00 to 17h00. Other dates will be announced in due time.

If you wish to attend the training session, please register in http://www.outsystems.com/Network/ViewStructured.aspx?FolderPath=/Root/Contents/Network/Training/HandsOnTraining
Thanks to all the people who contributed to this project for your patience and invaluable feedback.

Best regards,

Paulo Tavares
Hello all!

Just to let you know that a new version of the OutSystems Style Guide has just been released, along with updated documentation.

If you haven't checked it out yet, it's time you do so!

If you already have, it is worth the update, since it fixes some minor issues. If you can't afford to download the new version and use it from scratch, we have added a text file with the renamed style names to help you in the upgrade.

Best regards, and happy holidays!

Hello, Paulo

Are we considering a left menu option template?
We have clients that prefer that layout….

Hello Cristiana.

No, we are not considering any change to the Style Guide layout whatsoever. The only changes we have been doing to the Style Guide are related to updating the Widget Library, or simplifying a couple of patterns.

Is the left-side menu needed for aesthetical purposes only, or is there a functional requirement that the top menus don't fulfill?

If it helps, I know that André Vieira did a couple of things to seamlessly convert the new CSS to the older Style Guide's one - which had a left-side menu.

Best regards,

Paulo Tavares
Thanks Paulo,

it is for coherence purposes. They already have applications with left-side menu.
I'll talk to André then.
