Build Status codecov npm version

This package provides tooling support for theme generation in Dojo 2.

Imagine a scenario in which you are using third-party widgets in your Dojo 2 application (or the widgets provided by @dojo/widgets) and you want to theme them to match your existing application styles. This is where the dojo create theme command helps you.

This package will quickly generate theme scaffolding for third party widgets.


Adds a dojo create theme command which displays an interactive instruction to ask two questions:

  • What Package to do you want to theme?
  • Which of the theme files would you like to scaffold?

Upon successful execution of this command, dojo create theme creates a number of files for you in your app:

  • src/themes/theme.ts
  • src/themes/widget/path/widget.m.css

The latter CSS module comes ready with themable CSS selectors which you can fill in the styles for.

How do I use this package?

Install dojo/cli-create-theme in a Dojo 2 app:

npm install --save-dev @dojo/cli-create-theme

Run the command: dojo create theme.

For example, if you have widgets which live in the folder: node_modules/@dojo/widgets, you can enter: @dojo/widgets as the answer to What Package to do you want to theme?.

Compatible packages

Any package that has a theme directory containing .m.css and coresponding, compiled definition files (.m.css.js) is compatible.

└── package
    └── theme
        │   theme-file.m.css
        │   theme-file.m.css.js
