Is the Lithe mobile theme available in the open source version?

I love the Lithe mobile theme just wondering if it's available as open source?

If not are there any that are similar? I love the footer menu and sliding side menu.

    No, it was produced in-house specially for the cloud solution over the course of several months. It's actually quite complicated; it runs on 2 scaffold plugins in addition to the theme behind the scenes, and has higher baseline requirements than the rest of Vanilla. There's no open source equivalent or approximation to my knowledge.

  • I have implemented a few Ideas of lithe like the side menu, large pagers, and some of my own in my MinusBaseline theme:

    Afaik VBS 3 also has a sliding side menu

    If you are looking for screenshots, you'll be disappointed, vanilla is more about trying things out yourself.

    @Bleistivt‌ do you have a live working version on a link i can look at? Appreciate it's about creating things for yourself but that's the point of my question just want to see if there is a ready done theme I can use that will suit my forum rather than having to design one myself.

    What I like about Lithe is the footer account menu allowing more options. I'm sure this is easy enough to implement if you paid someone to add it.

    he may have a link, but conversely....

    what is so difficult to try the theme or download any theme and test on your own forum

    it takes all of 2 minutes to download a theme and a few minutes to test.

    or create a test forum - download and test themes to your desire.

    I'm sure your devs could create you a test forum :wink:

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    It's your lucky day, for some reason the screenshot I put on the theme page some time ago went missing, so I made new ones.

    Emulated in Firefox 360x480:

    Like the name suggests, it's basically the default theme with the main column at 100% and the panel hidden in a hamburger menu.

    Sprites have been replaced by an icon font and clicking on the gear will open a browser native select menu.

    Mobile interfaces are really about how they feel though, so you should test it out on a smartphone.

    Readymade? I don't know, you could use it as is, if you like the +Baseline default theme look. But it's intended to be a template, which is why I added a comment about what every line of CSS is doing.
