Build your Drupal theme from scratch with the right tools !
Basement is not a base theme. Basement is a tool to help you build your theme from scratch.
Of course, you can download basement and rename every file and function, but who have time for this? Hopefully, there's a drush command for that!
First, you need to have basement theme enabled on your site:
drush dl basement drush en -y basement
Then you can execute the
bc) command to create your
shinny new theme
drush basement-construct "My theme name" --machine-name=mythemename
drush basement-construct --help for more informations.
