## Optional themes
This package ships with optional themes as fixtures, they can be installed using the [loaddata admin command](https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.11/ref/django-admin/#django-admin-loaddata). Optional themes are activated on installation.

##### [Django](https://www.djangoproject.com/) theme (default):
Run ``python manage.py loaddata admin_interface_theme_django.json``

##### [Bootstrap](http://getbootstrap.com/) theme:
Run ``python manage.py loaddata admin_interface_theme_bootstrap.json``

##### [Foundation](http://foundation.zurb.com/) theme:
Run ``python manage.py loaddata admin_interface_theme_foundation.json``

##### [U.S. Web Design Standards](https://standards.usa.gov/) theme:
Run ``python manage.py loaddata admin_interface_theme_uswds.json``

### Add more themes
You can add a theme you've created through the admin to this repository by [sending us a PR](http://makeapullrequest.com/). Here are the steps to follow to add:

1. Export your exact theme as fixture using the `dumpdata` admin command:
``python manage.py dumpdata admin_interface.Theme --indent 4 -o admin_interface_theme_{{name}}.json --pks=N``

2. Copy the generated json file into the fixtures folder *(making sure its name starts with* `admin_interface_theme_` *to avoid clashes with fixtures that might be provided by other third party apps)*.

3. Remove the `"pk"` from the fixture and make sure the `active` field is set to `true` *(in this way a theme is automatically activated when installed)*.

4. Edit the section above to document your theme.

### Add theme support to third-party libraries
You can add **theme support to existing third-party libraries** using the following **css variables**:

- `--admin-interface-title-color`
- `--admin-interface-logo-color`
- `--admin-interface-env-color`
- `--admin-interface-header-background-color:`

## FAQ
- #### I already have a custom `base_site.html`, how can I make it work?

You can use [django-apptemplates](https://github.com/bittner/django-apptemplates), then add `{% extends "admin_interface:admin/base_site.html" %}` to your `base_site.html`
