How to customize style?

Before we customize the template style, first we need to understand the assets/ folder structure. This folder is for customer customization purposes. You can create a new folder and files in this folder.

Use gulp sass-compile or gulp monitor to compile these scss files and generate css files under assets/css folder.

How to change theme Colors/Variables?

If you are familiar with SCSS (Recommended method), you can easily change theme colors by changing the Bootstrap Theme color variables. Use assets/scss/variables/_variables.scss file to override Bootstrap variables.

Ex: Change the Primary color of the template


//  ================================================================================================
//  ? TIP:  It is recommended to use this file for overriding bootstrap variables.
//  ================================================================================================

$primary: #00cfe8; // Changing primary color

      

Use gulp sass-compile or gulp monitor to compile these scss. Bingo! You just changed primary color everywhere in the theme.

Similarly you can change other bootstrap colors (i.e secondary, success, danger etc...) and other bootstrap variables (i.e $h1-font-size, $table-cell-padding etc..) too.

If you are not familiar with SCSS (Not recommended method), you can change the style attribute by replacing the old value with a new one in app-assets/css folder.

Ex: To change the primary color of the template you need to find color value #7367F0 and replace it with new color in app-assets/css folder.
