The Simple Skin is a customized version of the standard Compact Skin that comes with Rational Method Composer. When selected during publishing, the Simple Skin generates web pages with a very simple look and feel. Much visual distraction is removed: dividers, unnecessary section headers, and collapsible sections. For a detailed comparison of the Simple Skin to the Compact Skin, see this Microsoft PowerPoint presentation:
To install this skin, download the "simple.zip" file from the link below, and follow the instructions for "How to install a skin" below.
Details of how this skin differs from the Compact Skin are described in the enclosed readme.rtf file.
Dutch is not one of the languages supported via the "-nl" parameter (see Rational Method Composer command line options ). However, you can create a Dutch website if you populate method elements with Dutch text and publish using a Dutch skin.
To install Dutch skins, download the "Dutch_Skins.zip" file from the link below, and follow the instructions for "How to install a skin" below.
Note: Some generated tree nodes under "Practice" elements are not translated (nodes named Work Products, Tasks, Roles, and Guidance that group elements associated with the practice element). The workaround is to associate one or more custom categories to the practice, and use these to group work products, tasks, roles and guidance. Each custom category can have a Dutch name.
New skins have been developed for the next release of RMC.
They include the following features:
- Browsing on mobile devices:
Skins have been updated so that published websites have an improved look and feel on mobile devices. Navigate on touchscreen devices using dropdown breadcrumbs instead of the treebrowser. Graphics and text scaled for small screens (mobile phones).
Skins have been updated to support discussions on individual published pages, which are stored as work items in a Rational Team Concert project area.
This feature is turned off by default, and is considered a beta feature that will evolve in future releases. To use this feature, you must modify the skin file named ContentComment.js to turn on the feature, and to reference the server and project area.
How to install a Skin:
Download and extract the zip file that contains the skin.
Copy the unzipped contents to the user_home\RMC\Skins\<skin name> directory.
Default locations for the user_home folder are as follows:
|Operating system||Default location of the user_home folder|
|Microsoft Windows Vista, 7 or 8||C:\Users\user_name|
|Microsoft Windows XP||C:\Documents and Settings\user_name|
Note that the user_home\RMC\Skins folder is created the first time that you publish or browse a configuration by using Rational Method Composer. The folder is initially populated with the skin that is used to publish or browse. Adding a new skin folder to this location makes the new skin available in the publishing options. See publishing configurations as websites.
