How to Customize

When a template file is loaded in the controller, Django scans all template directories starting from the ones defined by the user, and returns the first match or an error in case the template is not found. The theme used to style this starter provides the following files:

# This exists in ENV: LIB/admin_datta
< UI_LIBRARY_ROOT >                      
   |
   |-- templates/                     # Root Templates Folder 
   |    |          
   |    |-- accounts/       
   |    |    |-- auth-signin.html     # Sign IN Page
   |    |    |-- auth-signup.html     # Sign UP Page
   |    |
   |    |-- includes/       
   |    |    |-- footer.html          # Footer component
   |    |    |-- sidebar.html         # Sidebar component
   |    |    |-- navigation.html      # Navigation Bar
   |    |    |-- scripts.html         # Scripts Component
   |    |
   |    |-- layouts/       
   |    |    |-- base.html            # Masterpage
   |    |    |-- base-auth.html       # Masterpage for Auth Pages
   |    |
   |    |-- pages/       
   |         |-- index.html           # Dashboard Page
   |         |-- profile.html         # Profile Page
   |         |-- *.html               # All other pages
   |    
   |-- ************************************************************************

When the project requires customization, we need to copy the original file that needs an update (from the virtual environment) and place it in the template folder using the same path.

For instance, if we want to customize the index.html these are the steps:

  • Step 1: create the templates DIRECTORY inside the home app
  • Step 2: configure the project to use this new template directory
    • core/settings.py TEMPLATES section
  • Step 3: copy the index.html from the original location (inside your ENV) and save it to the home/templates DIR
    • Source PATH: <YOUR_ENV>/LIB/admin_black_pro/pages/index.html
    • Destination PATH: <PROJECT_ROOT>home/templates/pages/index.html

To speed up all these steps, the codebase is already configured (Steps 1, and 2) and a custom dashboard can be found at this location:

home/templates/pages/custom-index.html

By default, this file is unused because the theme expects index.html (without the custom- prefix).

In order to use it, simply rename it to index.html. Like this, the default version shipped in the library is ignored by Django.

In a similar way, all other files and components can be customized easily.
