I have tried to follow the standards and modular structure while developing the theme. Following sections are explaining the theme File & Folder, structure, html file struture and plugins.

HTML Structure


CSS & LESS


Less is a CSS pre-processor and it extends the CSS language, adding features that allow variables, mixins, functions and many other techniques that allow you to make CSS that is more maintainable, themable and extendable. Less runs inside Node, in the browser and inside Rhino.

All the css files are pre-compiled using less compiler and provided inside the assets/css/ folder. In case if you are not familiar with less or don't have any environment setup which can be used to compile the less files, then you can use these CSS files directly. But if you are familiar with less, then I'll suggest you to use the less files.

Files are explained below:

File Description
bootstrap.css Minton uses the bootstrap v3.3.6. The core bootstrap file is being used in all the pages.
elements.less This file is containing some of the utility functions or mixins for less. This file is from Joel Sutherland.
core.less/core.css This file is containing all common styles for all the pages.
pages.less/pages.css Pages contains the styles for all supported third-party JS/CSS plugins. It has overwritten version of styles.
components.less/components.css This is the one of the core and important file. It contains the styles for all the components, ui elements, and some other parts of the theme.
responsive.less/responsive.css This file is containing the styles related to responsiveness support.
icons.less/icons.css Combines various font icons. You should remove the fonts you don't plan to use from this file and recompile it.
menu_light.less Every version includes this less file. By default it's having a dark sidebar menu. If you would like to have a light sidebar(while background), please include this file in main less file and recompiled it.

Heads up! Please note that if you would like to compile the LessCSS files, you can use provided gulp configuration file. NOTE that the less structure is still required some more changes. So in case if you have any suggestion on this, please contact me. I'll appreciate your valuable suggestion and feedback.

Javascript


Minton uses jQuery, Bootstrap JS framework(at its core) and some of the third-party plugins. There are may more third party plugin which you can use according to your needs. The css is already containing matching style for these plugins so you will not need to do anything around it.

Files are explained below:

File Description
jquery.js, bootstrap.js, jquery.nicescroll, jquery.slimscroll, etc. These files are used at core of the theme.
jquery.app.js This is a main js file. It contains the custom JS code needed for features including layout, sidebar, etc. Also it contains the definition of some of the key components (e.g. notifications, portlet, etc) and code (for self-initialization) related to some of the controls (e.g. modal, range-slider, switchery, multiselect, etc).
pages/*.js These are the files containing pages specific code. They are mainly used for demo purpose.
plugins/**.js All supported and integrated third-party plugins are included in here.
Why do we have separate folder for each color scheme?

 

I will ask you to check the demo again and request you to notice the colors used for each of the graphs. The colors which are used in most of the graphs, are matching with the primary and base theme color. In order to do so, I required to write different markup and js code for each of them.

The theme contains various utilies including some helper classes, widgets, etc. Please see below some helper classes.

.p-0 Removes all padding space
