Use any HTML template as a theme generator for your Rails app.
You just tell it which DOM elements are special, e.g. where to put the <%= yield %>, load your app in the browser and see the theme in action.
install_theme path/to/template path/to/rails_app content_id
Replace some DOM content with <%= yield :some_label %> with –inside_yields:
install_theme path/to/app path/to/rails_app content_box \ --inside_yield "header:#header h2" \ --inside_yield sidebar:#sidebar"
If your application has Haml installed, the template/theme is automatically converted to Haml, and the css files converted to Sass.
Alternately, you can pass the flag –haml to force it.
Or pass the flag –erb to force erb template generation.
install_theme is distributed as a RubyGem, which installs the command line app automatically:
sudo gem install install_theme install_theme -h
