Here is the link:

http://themeforest.net/item/taurus-responsive-bootstrap3-admin-template/full_screen_preview/6097032

But i'm not sure that it fits the bill? The graphs aren't as good, and as far as i can see - there are no sliders at all, which will quite probably be integral to the scheduling of anything on the reefpi.

Can someone do a side by side comparison of the two, keeping in mind what we need it for? I'm a little biased lol - i really like the lightness of that theme compared to the dark look of the Taurus one.

From what I can see though, Taurus is lacking in sliders - i did find some eventually, but they dont seem to have any where near the same variety that Bracket has. Its also lacking in its charts/graphs compared to Bracket - the ones i especially like are the sparkline charts - little tiny charts that we can display in a line at the top of any page within the UI, or indeed on the website when the time comes. I expect it wouldn't be that hard to have them superimposed on any website you visit with a browser add on of some sort.

Like i said though - unbiased side by side comparisons.........

I have done some comparison and i still prefer Taurus lol. I do find the other one a bit slow to load pages etc.

The Taurus does seem to lack the slider (i cant seem to find one) but the rest seems to be better or equal to the other one.

Hmmm - we may have to set up a poll lol.

I admit Bracket does load a little slower - but i fear that with Taurus, we would be limiting what we can do with the UI without the extra options. Even just considering sliders - they will be an integral part of most of the config of the wavemakers/leds etc. Although I am sure they can be "written" into the code on taurus to add them in, can we be sure we would preserve the over all look of the UI, and make them fit in with everything else? There is also a really nice drag and drop calendar function in bracket that could be utilized for reminders/scheduling etc.
