Theming with UIkit

Learn more about the best practices for creating your own UIkit theme

Theming with UIkit

Today we'll show you how easily you can add your own styling to UIkit. First off, some fundamental HMTL and CSS knowledge and the basics of LESS are required.

The Basics

Let's talk about how theming in UIkit works. Each UIkit component is defined by a LESS file. LESS can not be interpreted by browsers and has to be compiled into browser friendly CSS. For that reason we use the Node.js based task runner Grunt. Once activated, it watches the directory you are working on and compiles all LESS files into one single CSS file, whenever you save a change. Learn more about this here.

On our website you can customize UIkit and download the compiled and minified CSS. For an uncompiled version of UIkit, including all source files, clone the GitHub repository. Once downloaded, you can style your theme by using variables and hooks to add your own styling to a selector. If you don't know how to clone, fork and send pull requests, take a look at the GitHub help.
