Introduction

The Rural theme has first been created for PhpGedView in 2009. It has since then be migrated to webtrees, and followed the subsequent evolutions, up to the latest version. Initially embedded in a larger code base, I have extracted it to its own GitHub repository in 2018.

The Rural theme is mainly based on brown tones, as a tribute to the earth our ancestors used to cultivate, with some green, color of nature. Contrary to other standard themes which use the full width of the screen, its characteristic layout is organised around the main genealogical content being wrapped within a responsive white panel on a brown background.

The header logo can be customised to any image, as long as its height does not exceed 150px (instructions below).

Having been a loyal companion to my webtrees experience for so many year now, I am happy to share the Rural theme and hope it can find its way to your list of themes.

Installation / Upgrading

The installation or upgrade process follows the standard one for webtrees themes/modules.

Versions up to 1.7

Steps:

  1. Download the latest release compatible with your webtrees version from the webtrees-theme-rural Github repository.
  2. Unzip the archive in the root of your webtrees installation. The zip file contains the full structure of folders, and will merge with your current one.
  3. Check if the folder rural is now present in the /themes/ directory.
  4. Open webtrees and the Rural Theme should now be available in the list of themes.

Versions from 2.0

Steps:

  1. Download the latest release compatible with your webtrees version from the webtrees-theme-rural Github repository.
  2. Unzip the archive in /modules_v4/.
  3. Check if the folder myartjaub_ruraltheme is now present in the /modules_v4/ directory.
  4. Open webtrees and the Rural Theme should now be available in the list of themes.

Customising

It is possible to change the default webtrees logo in the header, and use a personal image instead. I am using a customised header on my own website. In all cases, please make sure that the personal image does not exceed 150px in height.

Versions up to 1.7

Replace the image /themes/rural/css-1.7.8/images/header.png by a personal one.

Versions from 2.0

Replace the image /modules_v4/myartjaub_ruraltheme/resources/images/header.png by a personal one.

Development

The Rural theme is based on the Bootstrap framework, and from version 2.0, uses Sass to code the stylesheets (Less in prior versions). Composer and npm are required to generate the stylesheets.

If you wish to contribute, or create your own version of the Rural theme, here are some hints (valid for versions 2.0 and above).

Installation

Clone the repository to your local machine. You can either choose to create the directory directly in the /modules_v4/ directory, or create it somewhere else, and symlink /modules_v4/myartjaub_ruraltheme to the newly created folder.

git clone https://github.com/jon48/webtrees-theme-rural.git target_directory

In the target directory, first install the Composer dependencies (do run in dev mode to be able to generate the stylesheets). The fisharebest/webtrees package is explicitly set to use sources to be able to generate the stylesheets, do not override that setting.

composer install

Then install the node dependencies (again, do run in dev mode to be able to generate the stylesheets)

npm install

Build

Before building, make sure that the fisharebest/webtrees package is in the correct target webtrees version.

composer show fisharebest/webtrees

When ready to generate the stylesheets, run the following command.

npm run production 

Let it compile until the rural.min.css has been generated in /modules_v4/myartjaub_ruraltheme/resources/css folder.

NPM modes are:

  • production: generates the rural.min.css file in production mode, and all required files. (Runs the webtrees and rural modes below, with the production flag)
  • development: generates the rural.min.css file in development mode, and all required files. (Runs the webtrees and rural modes below)
  • webtrees: generates intermediary CSS from the mainstream webtrees into the /build/ folder. Those intermediary files are then injected in the main Rural theme CSS. Those files needs to be generated once before running other modes, or after webtrees version has been updated via Composer. (Laravel Mix entry point: webpack.mix.webtrees.js)
  • rural: generates the rural.min.css file in development mode (not minified). Requires the webtrees mode to have run once. (Laravel Mix entry point: webpack.mix.rural.js)
  • watch: watches for changes in SASS code, and generate the rural.min.css file in development mode. Requires the webtrees mode to have run once. (Laravel Mix entry point: webpack.mix.rural.js)
  • eslint / eslint-fix: Respectively checks and automatically format Javascript code to enforce Semi-Standard code style
  • stylelint / stylelint-fix: Respectively checks and automatically format CSS & SASS code to enforce StyleLint code style
