FLUX UI, or FLUX User Interface, is a user interface design proposal for OpenOffice.org initially developed by Joshua Martin, Stephan Ruben, and Mikko Lehmitsolo but whose development has grown to be a community effort. The ongoing mantra, or constitution, of the development process has been the three statements as follows:

  • The document is the most important UI element.
  • Don't show the user what he/she doesn't need at the moment (context sensitivity).
  • Don't focus on a single UI element (i.e. Ribbon, Menus, Tabs) - use a hybrid of elements so that the information is displayed in the most appropriate way.

Anyone is welcome to contribute; the mailing list is either ui @ ux.openoffice.org or flux-control-panel @ googlegroups.com where the first is the community's Renaissance mailing list and the latter is this project's mailing list. Your comments and questions should reach us at either address.
