This interactive tool may help you to generate your own color variant stylesheet.
To get started, first select a color variant from the variant switch that fits you best as a starting point.
The graph is interactive and reflect the current colors. You can click on any of the colored boxes to adjust the respective color. The graph and the page will update accordingly.
The arrowed lines reflects how colors are inherited thru different parts of the theme if the descendent isn’t overwritten. If you want to delete a color and let it inherit from its parent, just delete the value from the input field.
To better understand this select the
neon variant and modify the different heading colors. There, colors for the heading
h4 are explicitly set.
h5 is not set and inherits its value from
h6 is also not set and inherits its value from
Once you’ve changed a color, the variant switch will show a “My custom variant” entry and your changes are stored in the browser. You can change pages and even close the browser without losing your changes.
Once you are satisfied, you can download the new variants file and copy it into your site’s
static/css directory. Afterwards you have to adjust the
themeVariant parameter in your
config.toml to your chosen file name.
Eg. if your new variants file is named
theme-my-custom-variant.css, you have to set
themeVariant='my-custom-variant' to use it.
This only works in modern browsers.
