Maqui: Material Design theme for Oqtane
Also a tasty berry
Hello, open source community! I'm excited to share with you a new project that I've been considering for the past few months. It's called Maqui, and it's a Material Design theme for Oqtane, the modular application framework for Blazor.
Maqui is a modern and elegant theme that follows the Material Design guidelines and principles implemented by MudBlazor. It provides a consistent and beautiful user interface for Oqtane applications, with responsive layouts, animations, transitions, icons, typography, colors, and more. Maqui also supports dark mode, custom themes, and accessibility features.
Maqui is the result of my collaboration with Dark Matter, a software consulting company based in Oregon. I'm Mark Davis, a principal consultant at Dark Matter, and I've been using Oqtane since its early days. Dark Matter has been an early adopter of Oqtane and has been shipping products using the platform for the last few years. We've been impressed by the flexibility, performance, and productivity of Oqtane, and we wanted to contribute to its ecosystem and community.
That's why we decided to create Maqui, and make it available for free to anyone who wants to use Oqtane for developing mobile-first web apps in .NET. Maqui will be launched in mid-November, as soon as .NET 8 and Oqtane 5 are released. Oqtane recently announced a marketplace for modules and themes, so you'll be able to find Maqui there and install it with just a few clicks.
If you're interested in Maqui, you can check out the project on GitHub. There you'll find the source code, documentation, screenshots, and demos. You can also report issues, request features, or contribute to the project if you want.
Look for initial commits to Maqui in the later half of November. I believe Maqui will enhance your Oqtane experience and help you create amazing web apps with Material Design.
