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/ (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.
- Support for numerous social networks in user profiles (Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, etc.)
- Support for several instant messenger protocols in user profiles (AIM, YIM, Google Chat, etc.)
- Support for the Author Pane template in the Advanced Forums module
