Event description


A Drupal website can look pretty ordinary out-of-the box, but the look and feel of Drupal is actually really flexible. You can modify the HTML, add CSS and Javascript, change the layout, and make it all responsive. In this course, you'll learn how to build a Drupal theme to customize the look and feel of your Drupal site. We'll cover all the bases of theme development, from adding CSS to using Twig templates and preprocess functions.

This course is ideal for designers and developers who have an HTML/CSS background and want to get into Drupal theming and who are responsible for developing or maintaining a custom Drupal theme. It will also be useful for Drupal 7 themers who want to upgrade their skills.

Learning Objectives

You'll come away from the course with knowledge of:

  • Best practices for Drupal theming

  • How theming fits in with the over-all process of developing a Drupal website

  • Steps for developing a custom theme

  • When to use theming vs. configuration

  • What's easy and what's hard to change about the front-end of Drupal

  • Ability to create a Drupal theme by extending a core or contrib theme
