SharkSkin Framework Features
Complete Magento Framework
Extremely fast development, great features, base for any Magento project
SharkSkin includes code and design that extend crucial parts of Magento, both in frontend and backend, improving some of the original features and adding more, where the open source code lacks functionality. SharkSkin is a base for any type of Magento project, no matter the size, reducing greatly the time for development.
Bootstrap 3 and LESS
Speed up the development process even more and control everything from the backend
SharkSkin includes a default skin, based on Bootstrap 3 and LESS.
- Using Bootstrap 3 and the “mobile first” development approach, the mobile and desktop versions are created simultaneously, with automatically added responsive features, easy to extend base classes (buttons, links, colors, etc.).
- Using LESS reduces the time for development even more, separate blocks of the website are included in different LESS files, the base properties (colors, fonts, etc.) are exported to variables. Extending and modification is extremely fast and easy.
- SharkSkin includes integrated PHP LESS preprocessor (compilator) with two modes of caching and control of any type of variables from the backend. This gives ultimate freedom for customer modification directly from the backend, speed and independence of development and optimized CSS code.
SharkSkin is speed optimized to the maximum
SharkSkin uses various techniques to optimize the speed of page generation, transportation and rendering, extending the original Magento features. Minification and combination of CSS and JS, extensive caching and minificaton of the cached HTML, ready to use with CDN, extended resizing and caching of the images. With proper server setup you’ll be able to achieve unmatched speed.
LESS Preprocessor (compilator)
Edit directly the less files, control everything from the backend
SharkSkin includes an integrated PHP LESS preprocessor, which compiles all .less files into one big minified CSS file on the fly. You can edit the .less files directly via FTP and you don’t need a LESS JS. Evenmore, the LESS preprocessor takes variables from the Magento backend allowing modification of the original parameters by the user (colors, fonts, etc.). The modified parameters are then replaced in the original CSS instead of an inline CSS, which increases greatly the page load speed and reduces the time for development. The LESS preprocessor have two modes of caching – normal and aggressive which then reduces greatly the server load and increases the page load speed even more.
