XOOPS Cube Legacy Experimental aka UNMG
The main goal of XOOPS Cube Legacy Modules repository was to provide a common Graphical User Interface (templates set, stylesheet, icons) and release a package with a set of modules ready to use out of the box.
Recently it becomes an experimental repository to test future features. And today it includes the following css frameworks (themes) and modules.
This should work smoothly on XOOPSERVER 5 but also with Xamp or Mamp under Mac and Linux - You may need to change memory settings of these two environments to 16mb minimum.
CSS Frameworks with GUI builder to easy create theme layouts. These frameworks are well documented and simple to reset browsers default css, typo and layout. The css structure is alike table columns and rows. It's easier to define position of any block/element and it's cross-browser.
Editor and Filemanger
FCKEditor with plugin KFM (file and image manager) Translated to Japanese by Higashi
Actually shared by Wanikoo's Themes but could be used by modules
Documentation and Licenses of Modules and Themes
This folder includes some modified admin interface, templates and samples. This is not an extensive list nor representative of modules available to XOOPS Cube Legacy
This folder includes CSS Frameworks samples and Wanikoo themes Most themes have a clear description. But there's no design yet, only the html structure with js and css path.
Images and Uploads
This folder includes many new graphics too and some changes to default sql. Keep in mind, please, this is experimental and should not be used to upgrade, nor used in any production environment.

We need everybody feedback. Is this intuitive? What should be changed?
Feedback will help to keep GUI, themes and templates easy to edit by everyone
and XCL User Interface simple to use. Designers can help editing templates to
be implemented by developers in further releases.That way, developers can
get more free time to share knowledge and code to increase modules
All In ! All Win ^^
There's a lot of little things to improve, many modules to review, security to check, and many more to reach a simple common user interface for all modules. But I believe, if you, me and anyone using XCL can contribute with a few minutes and little feedback, together we can make XOOPS Cube Legacy a great tool to express our creativity.
