3rd Party (Commercial)
Current Version: 2.0.1
Release Date: Jul 1, 2012
Accessory, Control Panel Theme, Extension
An optimized user interface for the ExpressionEngine control panel, Minimalist improves accessibility, makes training people easier, and ramps up efficiency for professional developers.
Staring at a bright screen all day and night is not good for human eyes. Night mode helps out a little bit, automatically inverting the color palette at 8 pm and 6 am every day. This can be disabled in the extension, or overridden per session.
Along with larger font sizes and higher contrast colors, night mode ensures that even when you’re bleary eyed, recovering from Lasik, or coding in a dark cave somewhere, you’ll still be able to get some work done without a fistful of Tylenol.
Full Screen Templates
Sometimes you need to edit templates in the browser. Full screen code editing makes the most of this unfortunate situation. Upon click or keypress your code will expand to the full height and width of your browser window, much easier to find the bit of code you want to edit. Working in tandem with a shortcut on the update button, it’s possible to work on templates without ever touching the trackpad.
Accessibility & Keyboard Navigation
Navigate between the most frequently accessed parts of the control panel using only the keyboard. Minimalist reduces the amount of mousing, scrolling, and clicking required to perform basic tasks, sparing your fingers and wrists from unnecessary stress.
To remind yourself and encourage clients to use the shortcuts, there is a menu widget cheat sheet in the upper right. Instructions update dynamically depending on the requirements of your browser.
