What is this?
=============
I built this theme to solve the problem I had, wherein I managed several
different websites that used templates that were similar, but not 100%
identical. Specifically, I needed to solve:
1. Whenever I added a tweak to one template, deploying the changes to
the other teplates in a safe and sane manner, and
2. Dealing with the fact that the styles on different websites were
similar, but not 100% identical.
So I wrote this tool. I can make changes on one site, and then simply
check out the changes on the other websites. Additionally, I can deploy
an arbitrary template on any installation, so I can make changes to the
style for any website from any checked out copy. That simplfies things
for me somewhat.
Installation and usage
----------------------
1. Make sure you have this file (and the others) in a directory under DOCROOT/site/all/templates/
2. Run the script **bin/deploy.sh (site name)**. As of this writing,
valid sitenames are "pa-furry" and "saveardmore". That will create
symlinks to the appropriate files.
3. Go to **/admin/build/themes** in Drupal. The template you just deployed should be there.
I admit that this is a bit convuluted, but it does help me share code
between the different sites that I manage, which is a huge timesaver
when developing new features.
