This theming guide is intended for developers who need to do the following:
- Customize the themes that come with Brightspot’s front end.
- Create a new theme.
All web pages have a front end—the rendered page that a visitor sees and interacts with in a browser or mobile app. Enterprise-grade front ends have the following components:
- Layout—The location of each element in the web page. Layout is implemented with traditional HTML.
- Styling—The appearance of each element, such as colors, borders, and spacing. Styling is implemented with traditional CSS.
A combination of layout, styling, and behavior is a theme.
Some publishers use Brightspot in a headless environment with their own front end, and they maintain their in-house theme. Other publishers use Brightspot in a decoupled environment, and they use Brightspot’s front end with various, pre-configured themes.
Styleguide is Brightspot’s development environment for creating themes.
