+1 from me as well, though my familiarity with the context is basically zero outside of what you’ve mentioned in your email, Justin. I think if there’s any level of certainty that these are no longer being used and will not be used in the future, then it is cruft and best removed. If they are required again in the future, it can be added. Just my $0.02 😊

Subject: Proposal to remove contrast themes for jQuery UI

I’ve been looking at adding some additional low contrast themes for the contrast preference in UI Options (See: FLUID-6297<> . In the process of working on that I noticed that the jQuery UI contrast themes<> are not actually being used. There were several references to them for use by the prefs framework panels/adjusters; however they were not actually required there. They most likely fell out of need when we switched off of the jQuery UI Sliders in favour of our own native sliders and steppers.

Originally the jQuery UI contrast themes were provided as a way to add jQuery UI specific styling created with their themeroller<> tool. Our own css scripts should be able to handle most if not all of the work for styling these widgets in the respective contrasts. Integrators would still be able to create their own versions of jQuery UI themes if needed or could provide the necessary overrides.

I propose that a part of the work for FLUID-6297<> we remove the jQuery UI contrast themes from the repo. We will need to leave the default theme which is used for styling the tooltips used by inline edit and pager.

Please let me know what you think. I’d ideally like to continue working on this by the end of this week or the beginning of next.
