Diazo rules

First we need to copy toolbar’s html code:

<append theme="/html/body"
    content="//div[@data-iframe='plone-toolbar']" />

Then in case we are not copying all resources from Plone (content) to theme we have to include resources as well:

<append theme="/html/head">
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
    <script type="text/javascript"

Above 2 rules should be enough so that your theme will support
