I wanted to introduce you all to a new project out on CodePlex. The MetroUI8 project is now live at http://sp2010metro.codeplex.com . The project really started from a desire to merge the new Windows 8 Metro look into a SharePoint 2010 master page.
With the desire to have a “Splash” or landing page for another project that will be launching soon (more on that shortly) with the decided to create our own. Since this is a just a landing page meant to funnel viewers further into the SharePoint site and to specific content that is highlighted on the landing page, the master page and layout are fairly static. That said there is obviously a great deal more we can do with this project. Based on the feedback we get along with cool new features we have in mind like animated tiles and deployable via a WSP we will be making updates as we go along.
The project consists of five main areas:
The installation of the master page follows the standard process of deploying a SharePoint artifact to a SharePoint site collection:
Hopefully this will allow you to create a nice looking Metro Style landing page for your SharePoint 2010 site.
Thanks to the others who helped build this project!
