JSN Template Framework - Things behind the scenes

JSN Template Framework - Things behind the scenes

Joomla folks say that Joomla framework is not new terminology. But hey, JSN Template Framework? It sounds strange… even though it has been developed for countless hours by Joomlashine’s developers, almost all information about this framework has been kept quiet until now - now that it is rock solid, running smoothly and inspiringly.

Please distinguish between our JSN Template Framework and other products: While almost all other Joomla frameworks allow you to build Joomla templates, JSN Template Framework encourages you to customize Joomlashine’s templates better.

Still, confused? Below is an in-depth look at what is inside the JSN Template Framework.

JSN Template Framework at the first look

JSN Template Framework is a template control system. Cleverly hidden behind the template, it will be installed automatically when you install JSN templates. This Bootstrap-applied framework provides an intuitive user interface with separate sections and clear descriptions for each parameter.

No special skills are required to get acquainted with this framework since it comes with no render mechanism. It means no totally-new interface with an overwritten index.php file. It utilizes the existing render mechanism of Joomla to accelerate the loading speed. So this means that, as Joomla users, you can spend your time and energy on other additional features of JSN Template Framework instead.

Based on JSN Template Framework, over 60 Joomla Templates has been built for business, education, eCommerce, blog and different niches.

What can JSN Template Framework do for you?

Save your time and effort with sample data

Install sample data

Newbies can discover Joomlashine templates via sample data. Once installed it, you get the dummy data the same as the demo content. Now everything is in your hands – Just feel free to get an overview of what is contained in the template and examine any details you like. Along with dummy data, you get free editions of our three necessary yet powerful Joomla extensions – JSN ImageShow, JSN Uniform and JSN PowerAdmin.

Another option is the QuickStart package – A full package of Joomla CMS and a Joomla template. It is convenient if you want to create a whole separate environment to learn about our templates.

Update your template and framework automatically

Update template and framework automatically

Then you get all the latest bug fixes and newly added features. No need to re-install the template!

Check files modification

Check files modification

After updating the template and framework, all modified files are backed up so you can make comparisons and merge changes between the two versions. This feature is to guarantee that all unique details on your website won’t be lost in the updating process.

Get ultrafast speed with CSS/JS compression

CSS/JS compression

When you open a website, CSS and JS strings will be loaded and then the images appear, text effects, etc. More CSS/JS strings mean more website effects. It also means slower loading speed.

CSS/JS compression is a good way to reduce the size of the CSS/JS strings, which accelerates the loading speed accordingly. When compressing CSS/JS files, you have several options such as Max file size to define the maximum size a compressed file should be and Exclude from compression for files you don’t want to be compressed.

Besides the 4 highlighted features above, JSN Template Framework also helps you to customize the template more with:
