Design4Drupal - Themes: Standardize Without Compromise

Speaker Session

“One size fits all” does not apply when it comes to themes. Automatically selecting a theme based on your last project can be dangerous. Rolling your own custom theme from scratch every time can be extremely inefficient. Using a contributed theme can be frustrating as you override defaults and fight opinionated styles.

Any of these approaches can exhaust even the most determined front-end developer. Would standardizing a theme alleviate the pain? Bounteous' Andy Olson will answer that question at Design4Drupal!

Event Details

In this session we will frame an approach to select a theme for your organization. Attendees will learn how to:

  • Establish criteria to select a standard theme
  • Decide when to break away from the standard theme
  • Create a theme plan
  • Theme and sub-theme, large-scale projects
  • Onboard additional developers
