This course is for people wanting to know how to build a theme for Drupal 8. Starting with the installation of a fresh Drupal 8 site, we will make a copy of the Bartik default theme and then build on top of that. We will see how TWIG works by implementing some template files and add our own library in order to declare new CSS and JS files. Breakpoints, preprocessing and base theme will be covered as well as config files so that the theme could have its own responsive image styles. We will add a jQuery library to our theme in order to use it through template files.
