LeptonX Lite MVC UI

LeptonX Lite has implementation for the ABP Framework Razor Pages. It's a simplified variation of the LeptonX Theme.

If you are looking for a professional, enterprise ready theme, you can check the LeptonX Theme, which is a part of ABP Commercial.

See the Theming document to learn about themes.

Installation

This theme is already installed when you create a new solution using the startup templates. If you are using any other template, you can install this theme by following the steps below:

  • Add the Volo.Abp.AspNetCore.Mvc.UI.Theme.LeptonXLite package to your Web application.
dotnet add package Volo.Abp.AspNetCore.Mvc.UI.Theme.LeptonXLite --prerelease
  • Remove the Volo.Abp.AspNetCore.Mvc.UI.Theme.Basic reference from the project since it's not necessary after switching to LeptonX Lite.

  • Make sure the old theme is removed and LeptonX is added in your Module class.

[DependsOn(
     // Remove the BasicTheme module from DependsOn attribute
-    typeof(AbpAspNetCoreMvcUiBasicThemeModule),
     
     // Add the LeptonX Lite module to DependsOn attribute
+    typeof(AbpAspNetCoreMvcUiLeptonXLiteThemeModule),
)]
  • Replace BasicThemeBundles with LeptonXLiteThemeBundles in AbpBundlingOptions
Configure<AbpBundlingOptions>(options =>
{
    options.StyleBundles.Configure(
        // Remove the following line
-       BasicThemeBundles.Styles.Global,
        // Add the following line instead
+       LeptonXLiteThemeBundles.Styles.Global
        bundle =>
        {
            bundle.AddFiles("/global-styles.css");
        }
    );
});

Customization

Layouts

LeptonX Lite Mvc provides layouts for your user interface based ABP Framework Theming. You can use layouts to organize your user interface.

The main responsibility of a theme is to provide the layouts. There are three pre-defined layouts that must be implemented by all the themes:

  • Application: The default layout which is used by the main application pages.

  • Account: Mostly used by the account module for login, register, forgot password... pages.

  • Empty: The Minimal layout that has no layout components at all.

Layout names are constants defined in the LeptonXLiteTheme class in the Mvc project root.

The layout pages define under the Themes/LeptonXLite/Layouts folder and you can override it by creating a file with the same name and under the same folder.

Toolbars

LeptonX Lite includes separeted toolbars for desktop & mobile. You can manage toolbars independently. Toolbar names can be accessible in the LeptonXLiteToolbars class.

  • LeptonXLiteToolbars.Main
  • LeptonXLiteToolbars.MainMobile
public class MyProjectNameMainToolbarContributor : IToolbarContributor
{
    public async Task ConfigureToolbarAsync(IToolbarConfigurationContext context)
    {
        if (context.Toolbar.Name == LeptonXLiteToolbars.Main)
        {
            context.Toolbar.Items.Add(new ToolbarItem(typeof(MyDesktopComponent)));
        }

        if (context.Toolbar.Name == LeptonXLiteToolbars.MainMobile)
        {
            context.Toolbar.Items.Add(new ToolbarItem(typeof(MyMobileComponent)));
        }
    }
}

LeptonX Lite Mvc Components

Abp helps you make highly customizable UI. You can easily customize your themes to fit your needs. The Virtual File System makes it possible to manage files that do not physically exist on the file system (disk). It's mainly used to embed (js, css, image..) files into assemblies and use them like physical files at runtime. An application (or another module) can override a virtual file of a module just like placing a file with the same name and extension into the same folder of the virtual file.

LeptonX Lite is built on the Abp Framework, so you can easily customize your Asp.Net Core Mvc user interface by following Abp Mvc UI Customization.
