Themes are written using Sass to keep things modular and reduce the need for repeated selectors across files. Make sure that you have the reveal.js development environment installed before proceeding: https://revealjs.com/installation/#full-setup
To create your own theme, start by duplicating a
.scss file in /css/theme/source. It will be automatically compiled from Sass to CSS (see the gulpfile) when you run
npm run build -- css-themes.
Each theme file does four things in the following order:
Shared utility functions.
Declares a set of custom variables that the template file (step 4) expects. Can be overridden in step 3.
This is where you override the default theme. Either by specifying variables (see settings.scss for reference) or by adding any selectors and styles you please.
The template theme file which will generate final CSS output based on the currently defined variables.
