Last year we released a set of stylesheets to brand your non-production environments. Those stylesheets were built for the Classic UI and not for Fluid. Today we are releasing Fluid versions of the stylesheets.
The main colors are the same, but since Fluid uses a darker color for UI the themes are darker than the Classic versions. Here screenshots of the Fluid Homepage with each theme:
One change the stylesheets make beyond the color is adding a button style around the Homepage Tab selection. This should improve the usability of the homepage (thanks to Kyle for idea and CSS).
Use the colors however you want, but the list below is how I’m using the colors:
- DEV1 – Green
- DEV2 – Light Blue
- DEV3 – Purple
- TST – Red
- QA/UAT – Grey
- SBX (Sandbox and Nightly Refresh) – Yellow
Installing these scripts is simple. All of the changes are included in a single Data Migration project, so you can import all the styles with the Data Migration Workbench.
