Themes 2.x

This is a theme engine for Craft CMS, it allows you to create themes that are reusable and extendable. Themes are regular plugins, as such they can have their own settings, migrations etc, but now have a set of templates and assets that will inherit themselves, allowing for faster front-end development.

Craft backend is amazing but if you're not a developer making a frontend can be a bit daunting and if you're making a lot of sites can become a repeating exercise, this plugin (especially in pro version) should alleviate this by doing a lot of the work for you.

This theme engine will allow you to :

  • Install themes from the store or any git repository (composer, github, local filesystem etc)
  • Define your own themes that can extend each other
  • Choose which theme will be used for which site, language, viewport or url path according to a set of rules.
