Add more themes

You can add a theme you’ve created through the admin to this repository by sending us a PR. Here are the steps to follow to add:

1. Export your exact theme as fixture using the dumpdata admin command: python dumpdata admin_interface.Theme --indent 4 -o admin_interface_theme_{{name}}.json --pks=N

2. Copy the generated json file into the fixtures folder (making sure its name starts with “admin_interface_theme_“ to avoid clashes with fixtures that might be provided by other third party apps).

3. Remove the pk from the fixture and make sure the active field is set to true (in this way a theme is automatically activated when installed).

  1. Edit the section above to document your theme.
