Semiomantics EVO Developer Theme
2 years ago, about at the same time of the year, we have built Evo, an Action script driven Flash photo and portfolio website.
This time we will make use of HTML5, CSS3 and Java Script to customize Semiomantics EVO, a Semiomantics development for Developers.
Flash is not anymore a smart option for development for as long as Apple mobile devices are as popular as they are and for as long as mobile Apple devices will not display Flash. Therefore we have been looking for an alternative to produce smashing and eye-catching sites based on HTML5.
Of course the good old Evo Flash driven sites still look great. As a lot of work has been put into them we will try to use namely all the edited images and footage in the new EVO version.
Semiomantics EVO Version 2012
The biggest changes are:
- EVO is now powered by WordPress
- EVO does not use any Flash but is a responsive HTML5, CSS3 and Java script theme.
The new EVO assembles the ultimate in WordPress design and features for modern media display. Ideal for photographers, EVO features not less than 6 different Gallery Types. Galleries can be displayed most anywhere and the number is unlimited.
EVO can also display EXIF and location data.
The high resolution background slider will assure clean display also beyond resolutions of 2500 px equivalent.
Custom sidebars for pages and categories.
Finally: the script is eCommerce ready!
