Uix Kit

Make over 120+ components to wear again and again!


Uix Kit is not a framework, just a UI toolkit based on some common libraries for building beautiful responsive website.

Uix Kit isn’t a reusable component structure, mostly custom CSS and JavaScript based. Definitely interesting, and if you’re developing mostly web content and not applications this is particularly useful. It is a web dev build tool/scaffold that does not depend on any framework. You can import any external libraries/frameworks or native ES Modules for production.

The generated core file in the dist directory can be used separately in any website. Support JS, HTML, and SASS component library automatically packaged. Automatically convert ES6 JS to ES5 using Babel in this scaffold.

Uix Kit is now in Long Term Support (LTS) mode.

Why use it


Installation And Test

quick overview 1

quick overview 2

You will need to have node setup on your machine. That will output the built distributables to ./dist/* and ./examples/*.html.

Step 1. Use NPM (Locate your current directory of project, and enter the following command.) or download the latest version from Github. For nodejs you have to install some dependencies.

$ sudo npm install uix-kit

Or clone the repo to get all source files including build scripts:

$ git clone git://github.com/xizon/uix-kit.git

Step 2. First, using an absolute path into your "uix-kit/" folder directory.

$ cd /{your_directory}/uix-kit

Step 3. Before doing all dev stuff make sure you have Node 10+ installed. After that, run the following code in the main directory to install the node module dependencies.

$ sudo npm install --only=dev --unsafe-perm --production

Step 4. When you’re ready to deploy to production, create a minified bundle with:

$ npm run build

Step 5. When you have done, this will spin up a server that can be accessed at

http://localhost:8080/examples/

Note:

a) ERROR: npm update check failed.

$ sudo chown -R $USER:$(id -gn $USER) /Users/{username}/.config

b) How to use modules?

You could custom modules of what to import in src/components/_app-load.js and src/components/_app-load-rtl.js. Because the modules are imported too much, you need to wait at least 5.5 seconds (default value). You can set the compilation wait time in the webpack.config.js according to the imported modules you want.

c) Site Info Configuration

You can update the Placeholders in Templates by modifying the Site Info configuration of package.json. Like this:

{
  "author": "UIUX Lab",
  "name": "uix-kit",
  "email": "uiuxlab@gmail.com",
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "projectName": "Uix Kit",
  "createdInfo": "UIUX Lab (https://uiux.cc)",
  "projectURL": "https://uiux.cc",
  "description": "A free web kits for fast web design and development, compatible with Bootstrap v4.",
  ...
}

How to Create a Custom Module

Assuming you are in your application’s root directory and want to create components inside src/components/ as you show above. You can create a new directory and name it demo-module.

👇👇👇

Here’s a sample custom module directory structure, I’ve included some examples of files that would sit inside of each folder:


uix-kit/
├── src/
│   ├── components/
│   │     ├── _app-load.js
│   │     ├── _app-load-rtl.js
│   │     └── demo-module/
│   │              ├── scss/*.scss
│   │              ├── scss-rtl/*.scss
│   │              ├── js/*.js
│   │              └── *.html
└──

Step 1. Inside that folder create two sub folders: /scss and /js. If you need to support RTL, create another /scss-rtl.

Step 2. Create a SASS/SCSS file. Go into the src/components/demo-module/scss/ folder and create a file called: _style.scss. Please import global variables or functions. Here’s an example:

/* ====================================================== 
   <!-- Demo Module Stylesheets --> 
/* ====================================================== */
@import '@uixkit/core/_global/scss/_variable-and-mixin.scss';

.app-demo {
	font-size: $basic-font-size;
    text-align: left;
}

Step 2-2 (Optional). Alright, so if you need to support RTL. You need create a new SASS/SCSS file. Go into the src/components/demo-module/scss-rtl/ folder and create a file called: _style.scss. Like this:

/* ====================================================== 
   <!-- Demo Module Stylesheets --> 
/* ====================================================== */
@import '@uixkit/core/_global/scss/_variable-and-mixin.scss';

.app-demo {
    text-align: right;
}

Step 3. Create a JS file. Go into the src/components/demo-module/js/ folder and create a file called: index.js. In order to make it work we need to import the global variables or functions in file index.js.

Simultaneously, Now you’re ready to import your Stylesheets to use with this component. Import SASS/SCSS file in src/components/demo-module/js/index.js.

Like this:.

/* 
 *************************************
 * <!-- Demo Module Scripts  -->
 *************************************
 */
import {
    templateUrl,
    homeUrl,
    ajaxUrl,
    browser,
    UixModuleInstance,
    UixGUID,
    UixMath,
    UixCssProperty
} from '@uixkit/core/_global/js';

import '../scss/_style.scss';

export const DEMO_MODULE = ( ( module, $, window, document ) => {
	if ( window.DEMO_MODULE === null ) return false;

    module.DEMO_MODULE               = module.DEMO_MODULE || {};
    module.DEMO_MODULE.version       = '0.0.1';
    
    
    // executes when HTML-Document is loaded and DOM is ready
    module.DEMO_MODULE.documentReady = function( $ ) {
		/* 
		 ---------------------------
		 Function Name
		 ---------------------------
		 */ 
		// your code here...
	
    };
    module.components.documentReady.push( module.DEMO_MODULE.documentReady );
	
    
    
    // executes when complete page is fully loaded, including all frames, objects and images
    module.DEMO_MODULE.pageLoaded    = function() {
		/* 
		 ---------------------------
		 Function Name
		 ---------------------------
		 */ 
		 // your code here...
		
    };
    module.components.pageLoaded.push( module.DEMO_MODULE.pageLoaded );	


	return class DEMO_MODULE {
		constructor() {
			this.module = module;
		}
	};
})( UixModuleInstance, jQuery, window, document );

Step 4. So far, to dynamically import the module you just created in src/components/_app-load.js. The simplest version directly imports the default:

import DEMO_MODULE from '@uixkit/core/demo-module/js';

Step 4-2 (Optional). If you need to support RTL, in src/components/_app-load-rtl.js. like this:

import '@uixkit/core/demo-module/scss-rtl/_style.scss';

These RTL modules do not need JavaScript.

Step 5 (Optional). You could also create an HTML file to run the demo of this module separately, all HTML files will be automatically exported into the directory examples/. The demo code of the HTML file is as follows:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="@@{website_lang}" dir="@@{website_dirLTR}">

	<meta charset="@@{website_charset}" />
	<title>Demo Module - @@{website_title}</title>

Note 💡: You could call a specified module script which is commonly used for callbacks of AJAX request from Asynchronous method. The demo code is here:

import { UixModuleInstance } from '@uixkit/core/_global/js';

if ( UixModuleInstance.DEMO_MODULE ) UixModuleInstance.DEMO_MODULE.pageLoaded();
if ( UixModuleInstance.DEMO_MODULE ) UixModuleInstance.DEMO_MODULE.documentReady($);

Since Uix Kit is not a JavaScript framework, you could use any third-party libraries to build your custom module styles and animation scripts in the most intuitive way.
