Description

The download page at http://jqueryui.com/download has one missing option that I think would be useful to add.

When you select a theme, it is placed in the css folder and also the development-bundle/themes folder along with the basic theme. I would like to see a "Get All Themes" check box there that will cause all of the other themes to ALSO be included in the development-bundle/themes folder. IOW, when checked all themes (not just basic and the selected theme) will be placed in development-bundle/themes so that they can be swapped into css (or pointed to directly from a page's link parm).

Thank You.

I'm not sure why you want this, but it certainly seems like it'd be of limited use while requiring special handling to implement. In the future, ThemeRoller should be able to run stand-alone at which point you should be able to script this pretty easily.

I do not think a fix to ThemeRoller would help since that page seems to be designed to take a current Theme from the Galley, tweak it, and then output the tweaked version along with the jqueryui files.

As to why I want it, there are a large number of themes defined, and if I want all of them, I need to run the build page once for each theme (creating a separate zip file for each). My request should not, I think, be that hard to do since the code to generate the development-bundle/themes folder already outputs the basic theme and whatever theme is selected with the selection menu. All that would be needed, as far as I would assume, is to just run that selection menu entries and output all the themes.

I have not looked at the code, I guess I should, and see if my assumption is correct.

No, that's what download builder does. ThemeRoller only generates themes.

That doesn't answer why you want the themes.

That won't be possible until the rewrite. The source is not public right now.
