Rich custom User Interfaces with Glade and CSS

Juan Pablo Ugarte

Some times you find yourself, as a developer, in the position where you need to develop a custom looking application, perhaps for an embedded device but are not sure if your trusted desktop toolkit is up to the task.

Thanks to the introduction of CSS in GTK+ 3.. it IS!

In this talk we are going to show how to develop a custom looking User Interface with nothing but Glade and CSS. Starting from the designer mockup to the integration of resources into the final executable. Taking advantage of new functionality like Gtk+ composite templates and Glade CSS pre visualization and integration.
