Main features of T3 3.0 Framework
FEATURE 1 Responsive Design
The future is mobile. The introduction of smartphones, Iphones and tablets has opened a new world for web and apps developers and a new set of needs. JoomlArt has always been on the forefront on this and our responsive templates, like JA Wall, JA Elastica, JA Lens, JA University, JA Zite ... were a great success among our users.

We think it is important to have a website that is displayed beautifully on all devices and our new framework takes additional care of this requirement. No more needs of different templates for each type of mobile device, your template will adapt automatically to the screen size of the device and display all the content in an intuitive and simple way.
FEATURE 2 HTML5Our T3 3.0 Framework and all our new templates will be HTML 5 ready.
FEATURE 3 LESS vs CSSLESS is an open-source dynamic stylesheet language created by Alexis Sellier, also known as cloudhead, in 2009 that extends CSS with dynamic behavior such as variables, mixins, operations and functions.
Inspired by Sass and CSS, LESS can be used in many ways and LESS files can be, if needed, recompiled into CSS.
FEATURE 4 Twitter Bootstrap
Developed by Twitter, Bootstrap is a powerful toolkit built with LESS that consists in a collection of CSS and HTML for typography, forms, tables, grids, buttons, charts etc.
Bootstrap is supported by T3 3.0 Framework and is also one of the main features of the new version of Joomla, Joomla 3.0, that has been released at the end of September.
Bootstrap supports responsive design and it is available open source on Github.
FEATURE 5 ThemeMagicSimilar to Wordpress, our own customizer ThemeMagic will allow you to customize the template and see immediately how the changes will affect the front-end. For example, you will be able to change the Theme, from Default (picture below):
to “Dark” and see immediately how your website will look after the change:
and modify other aspects of your website, like the background, the text and link colors.
In the Visual tab, you will be able to change the Elements radius, invert the colors of the navigation bar and of the spotlight and change the logo / set it as text.
Module tab will allow you to change modules background, text, title text and title background colors.
