How to Design Drupal 8 Themes

Rod Martin · April 5, 2016

This class is a hands-on introduction to designing your Drupal 8 site. You’ll learn how to customize your Drupal site with CSS, HTML, Javascript, custom fonts and more.

To take this class, you should already have good Drupal 8 site building skills, plus a knowledge of CSS, HTML and some PHP.

  • In the first part of the class, you’ll learn how Drupal 8’s theming system works. You’ll see how PHP, HTML, CSS, Javascript and Twig combine to allow you to design your site.
  • In the second part of the class, you’ll build your first custom theme. You’ll create all the architecture needed for a theme, from the files and folders to the external scripts and mobile breakpoints.
  • In the third part of the class, you’ll get a deeper understanding of all the elements found in a typical theme folder and how to customize them.
  • In the fourth part of the class, you’ll take an existing design and turn it into a complete Drupal theme!
