Cellular :: Base Theme for Drupal 7

The Cellular base theme for Drupal 7 simplifies Drupal front-end development using the theme layer to add functionality that doesn't require heavy database interaction.


  • jQuery & jQuery-UI update (that doesn't break Views & simplifies UI theming)
  • Mobile 1st, fluid/jello styling with SASS styling broken into logical partials
  • Full menu tree display, dynamic conditional CSS, & lots of other nifty settings
  • Easy favicons & apple-touch-icons (.ai files included)
  • Integration with several javascript libraries (D3.js, GreenSocks Animation, Modernizr, etc.)
  • Integrated social media follow & share links with custom icons


Advanced theme features require the cellular library:

Download and extract the contents to $base_path/sites/all/libraries/cellular

cd sites/all/libraries
git clone --branch master cellular
  1. Navigate to /admin/appearance and enable the Cellular theme
  2. Enable & set subcellular as the default theme
  3. Modify the theme Settings to suit your needs.
  • Personalize : Set copyright & favicons
  • Style : Add/Edit media query, remove Drupal CSS, configure breadcrumb & menu display settings, set content classes
  • Javascript : Select the javascript libraries to include.
  • Social Media : Select and configure the social media links to you would like to include.

Cellular uses theme functions rather than theme settings (.INFO files) to add/update/delete stylesheets and javascript, providing a simple code-based solution to add multiple elements to your theme with a high degree of control over the loading order.


  • Load additional css in the order you need with cellular_add_css() - Add your stylesheets to the array $add_css in /inc/

  • Get rid of unnecessary stylesheets with cellular_remove_css() - Add the module => stylesheet to the array $exclude in /inc/

  • SASS is preconfigured & ready to watch (cd /path/to/theme, compass watch)


  • /js/script.js is ready for you to add your custom scripting.

  • Load scripts in the order you need with cellular_add_js() - Add your scripts to the array $add_js in /inc/

    • nice Link to a CDN script by including the ['cdn'] key. If the ['object'] & ['file'] keys are also present, a local fallback link will be automatically generated after the cdn link.
