4 pre-made unique layouts
To jumpstart your imagination, we have included 4 different home page variants viz. Business, Magazine, Corporate and Landing page (Onepage with sticky menu). More layouts would be added in the coming versions, for now these layouts should get you started.

Architecture & Technologies
The Free Joomla template is built with new web technologies: Bootstrap, Font awesome, LESS.
To keep the template clean, lightweight, easy to use and customize, we decided not to use any Framework for the template.
Bootstrap 2 integration
Bootstrap is a powerful front-end framework, it will be extramently helpful for web development and content building based on tons of premade markups.
LESS & CSS
JA Simpli is built with LESS - a dynamic style sheet language, once development is done, it is complied to CSS, that means you can develop with CSS or LESS.
Font Awesome 4.5
The integration of the latest Font Awesome version - v4.5 allows you to add any font Awesome icon by adding the class like: fa fa-home.
Flexible layout system
JA Simply supports multiple layouts by default, they are standard layouts: 3 columns, 2 column and 1 colum with boxed or full width style.
Theme Customizer Tool
The magic tool helps user customize style and other elements in your website based on predefined parameters in real time. What you do is what you see.
Powerful Layout configuration
Customizing layout is just simple with JA Simpli, the layout configuration with lots of option built-in help you build layout your ways with ease.
No need to look for correct files to add scripts like Google Analytics code, all are implemented as fields in admin panel. Just add scripts to the tags you want: <head>, <body>.

This is a simply fantastic effort ! In a time where templates without any special 'frameworks' are not thought of anymore, you have proven yet again that there is plenty of room to innovate. Now that you have shown what you can do with the Joomla frontend, how about a breath of fresh air for the Joomla admin?

Sample section descriptions
Why BootStrap 2.3.2?
Well thats what Joomla! uses as default. We will add Bootstrap 3 support later on. Right now this baby got to act like a default Joomla template.
Where can I download?
We still have few things to tweak. Subscribe to Simpli mailing list to get the early access and updates.
What about 3rd party extension support?
Works well with StackIdeas extensions to start with, other popular extensions will be tested soon. So far no issues.
Our support scope is limited to helping users get demo site alike display and bug fixes only.
Joomla! really needs a good powerful default template, instead of complaining or waiting, we went ahead and hopefully this will encourage others also to address the default templates issue of Joomla!..
