The sfAdminThemejRollerPlugin packages a new admin generator theme based on jQuery UI ThemeRoller (http://jqueryui.com/themeroller/).

This plugin allows to change the default admin generator theme to one based on the theme roller from jQuery UI team. It is very convenient to change themes and keep UI consistency all around or even create your own theme.



  • Install the plugin

    $ symfony plugin:install sfAdminThemejRollerPlugin --stability=beta
  • Clear the cache

    $ symfony cache:clear

How to use it


Generate an admin generator:

    ./symfony --theme=jroller doctrine:generate-admin

if you already have an admin generator, you can simply change the theme inside your generator.yml

    theme: jroller



You can use your own jQuery/jQueryUI and your own theme (based on ThemeRoller) and configure all this inside your app.yml:

        web_dir:      /sfAdminThemejRollerPlugin # specify specific folder where to pick your jquery stuff, ui and themes.
        use_jquery:   true # default. use the packaged jquery/UI
        theme:        redmond # default. 
        css_reset:    true # default. reset default css (from Blueprint CSS)

To add icons on your buttons/links you can use those proposed by ThemeRoller and include them in your generator.yml:

        _new: { ui-icon: plus }
        _edit: { ui-icon: pencil }

Note: you only need to use the specific part of each icon, not the all name, e.g. 'ui-icon-plus'.
