Creating a boot theme

Joel Roth edited this page Apr 30, 2017 · 3 revisions

This section explains how you can create your own boot script theme.

Section "The boot scripts anatomy" already explained that a theme is a single script file. In fact, if you really want, you can create a theme that spreads through multiple files (but this is not necessarily a good idea). The point here is that one file is enough. This file implements a five functions: ThemeInit, ThemeFinish, ThemeBefore ThemeAfter, and ThemeFile.

So, if you want to create a boot theme for GoboLinux, all you have to do is to create a script file like /Programs/BootScripts/<version></version>/Themes/MyVeryOwnBootTheme that implements those functions (and optionally something in the script body) with all the bells and whistles you want.
