Less CSS? Yes, please!

We have been evolving the ThemeBuilder to become an indispensable tool to help application development teams meet styling requirements. It now goes far beyond colors and fonts into deep customization, collaboration, and even Figma import. It is now a visual tool that allows you to:

  • Make global style customizations with just a few clicks
  • Choose color palettes 
  • Perform atomic style customizations and export ready-to-use themes
  • Create and store custom variables, fonts, and icons
  • Save and share projects
  • Import Figma design tokenså

Join Product Manager Stefan Marianov and Developer Advocate Kathryn Grayson Nanz as they walk you through this new tool. During this session, they will show you how the ThemeBuilder helps you improve the way you customize UI and allows you to focus more time on important software engineering tasks.

Session Agenda

Progress Design System Kit

The ThemeBuilder is a critical part of the Progress Design System Kit, which includes everything you need to customize UI. At the least, users expect clean, consistent UI across all touchpoints. At the most, developers need to implement a fully customized design system that wows your users and kills the competition. In either case, developers’ time is best spent creating the application. And developers’ skill sets are often not in design. As a result, delivering modern/professional UI is a daunting task. That's where the Design System Kit comes in. Whether you need to use (and customize) popular open-source themes or implement a fully unique design system, we have the tools to help deliver the people-centric UX users expect without consuming valuable development time.
