I'd like to discuss with cubicweb community if it could be possible to find
a solution to avoid having an extra component layer in OrbUI, right now we
are placing the cubicweb web ui components in there, duplicating all
principals ui components, even the main template.

We did it that way because we needed to have a different html output for
the cubicweb components so the bootstrap framework can work with the
recomendend html code.

If we could find the way to use cubicweb default components,  it would be
awesome, because we won't need to give maintenance to these components in

First step (maybe) could be to have all cubicweb components and layout
standarized to html5, that would be nice and healthy if someone would like
to use their own css styles instead of cubicweb default css, or also we
could create several "skins" or "css themes" above default cubicweb ui.

Going a little further, for OrbUI that doesn't seem to be an easy solution
due we need the specific html output to use the bootstrap grid, controls,

I think maybe we can separe the html code from the logical code that builds
the controls, but I am not sure how to do this in a proper and clean way. I
will be happy to hear any suggestions, ideas, or comments about this point,
which I consider that could be the way to keep developing both projects in
a very smooth way.

Best Regards!
