Page layouts in Visual web pack

Winston Prakash wrote a pretty cool plug-in for Visual web pack which lets you choose one of the page layouts when creating a new visual JSF page. I tried it and it works great.

It would be awesome if you could create your own templates with your favorite HTML editor, import them into Visual web pack and then add your functionality. Winston's plug-in seems to be the first step in that direction. When you are designing your web application you don't have to start from scratch but you have pre-defined layouts. My wish is that I could design these page layouts with an external tool and import them into Visual web pack and work with them. But I realize this is very hard to implement.

Hi Roumen, thanks for highlighting the VW Page Layouts plugin in your blog.

Your wish is very interesting. Actually I was thinking about two other ideas, but never thought about your wish. Including your wish, now I will continue look in to the following three areas

- Ability to design a Page Layout in VW designer itself and save it as predefined Page Layout for future use.
- Ability to import Page Layouts designed in external tools and save it as predefined Page Layout for future use.
- Ability to add predefined Page Layout to a web project as Template and create pages from that template. Modifying the Page Layout Template in the project should reflect uniformly in all the pages created from that template.
