Brick Preview

We are happy to announce the first preview version of Brick, a new widget set created from scratch on top of Bloc.
Brick is being developed primarily by Alex Syrel (together with Alain Plantec, Andrei Chis and myself), and the work is sponsored by ESUG. Brick is part of the Glamorous Toolkit effort and will provide the basis for the new versions of the development tools.
Brick’s goal is to provide a beautiful looking widget set, and the default look is based on material design. The widgets are theme-able.
Right now, there exists:
– Label
– Simple button
– Toggle button
– Checkbox
– Radio button
– Window with or without an active title bar that can include various visual actions and info
– Menu
– Beautiful scrollbars that are thin by default and enlarge when the mouse hovers over it
– Scalable list for huge amounts of items with various heights
(The list also allows one for embedding text widgets with in place editing)
The next immediate target is the creation of a new Pager widget (the widget that is behind the current GTInspector).
You can see some screenshots on the official site:
To play with it, you can download a ready-made image:
and, in a Bloc space, you can browse the examples:
