Instance administration

A guide for instance administrators

Managing themes

There are two kind of themes in Plume:

As an admin, you are in charge of choosing which themes (both instance-level and blog-level ones) will be available on your instance. To make a theme available, all you have to do is to put its files in static/css/NAME (with NAME the actual name of the theme).

If you build Plume from source, any theme in assets/themes/NAME will be compiled in static/css/NAME. You can thus download the source of a theme written in SCSS or in SASS and build it along with Plume (just with cargo run, cargo build or cargo install, as usual).

You can also choose the default instance theme with the DEFAULT_THEME environment variable.
