Theme changes #8738

Hi all,

Once and for all, is the proper way to modify a theme by simply changing the metronic-custmize.less file?

Is there a task runner or specific command line I can run to make that happen manually? Right now I'm using the popular Web Compiler VS exention.

    Hi @statuscast,

    You can basially build metronic's style files using its own source code and replace related stlye files in AspNet Zero. There is no automatic way provided by AspNet Zero.

    I wasn't asking if its automatic or manual. Just for some direction.

    Is there any specific documents that walk your customers through this? I mean, where do we get the specific Metronic build? where are the directions on how to build our own? where are the AspNetZero files to replace?

    I find the KeenThemes and Metronic web sites INCREDIBLY confusing and very expansive. It's almost impossible to tell what is relevant and what isn't in regard to Anz. I mean, again, given SO MANY people are always asking about how to do this, wouldn't a simple step by step demonstration be something you could consider? We have long exhaustive documentation on far less common things (like deploying Anz to Azure pipelines). I imagine every customer needs to style their apps and some more comphrensive guidance is needed. Just my vote ;-) Anz is wonderful! But the approach to theme is with Metronic is very complicated and the completely lack of documentation is slowing down development.

    Hi @statuscast

    Metronic's documentation is included in its source code. Do you have its source code ? If not, you can download it here https://aspnetzero.com/download.

    Metronics documentation has a section about building its source code.
