Lubith is an online editor that generates themes for WordPress-based websites. It works on the basis of creating accounts, providing for the users the possibility to customize themes for their WordPress sites directly from the browser. The editor can be used both by home users and those who are more advanced in WordPress theming. No coding knowledge is required, due to the editor’s interactive and intuitive interface.
Themes are kept on the server for seven days after the last save. If no change is made in a 7-days period, the themes are deleted, to prevent server overload. The Pro membership available in Lubith offers several additional features, like the possibility to work on multiple themes at the same time (all kept on the server during the entire period of the chosen membership).
The main feature of Lubith is represented by its “selection” option: each element of the layout, from the body down to the post’s meta and utility data, is selectable, following the header – content – footer structure. The customizing options can be applied to each selected element. The user can move and resize elements using the orange and green knobs and make modifications from the Tools panel. The customizing options are:
Background: background image, background color, background opacity, image position
By selecting an element an image can be uploaded in its background or a color can be selected instead. Lubith has an opacity tool which can determine the transparency rate of the background or of the element altogether (master opacity). Blending between the overlaid elements can be assured using this tool. The image’s vertical and horizontal position and repetition in the background can also be custom set.
Type: text style (font family, size, variant, decoration, transform, word/letter spacing, line height, text shadow), text opacity, text alignment
Lubith provides 465 fonts that can be used for the elements containing text, some of them supporting additional scripts, like Cyrillic, Greek, Latin and Vietnamese. The text’s basic properties, alignment, and opacity can be custom set, along with additional font properties, like word or letter spacing and line height. For the text’s drop shadow feature, the user can customize the shadow’s color, opacity, position and blur radius.
Border: border width, color, opacity, corner radius
Borders can be applied to any selectable element, with custom width, color, opacity. The border’s corners can be rounded by establishing their radius.
Tools: add/ remove elements (logo, site title/description/menu, post meta/ utility, sidebars), dimensions, padding, master opacity.
The users can add or remove elements of the layout in order to change the way content is displayed by the layout. A custom logo can be placed inside the layout’s header. The site’s title, description menu, the posts’ meta and utility data and the sidebars can be removed in order to generate a more website-like look for the WordPress-based blogs. Padding can be dictated in order to facilitate a better alignment of the content inside an element’s borders.
The themes created in Lubith can be tested directly in the browser and downloaded. Themes are activated from the WordPress admin.
