Hello and welcome!
If you're new to theming, you’ll find some useful tips to help you get started right below. Browse through and be on the path to creating a spectacular theme!

Things You'll need

  • Android Studio

    is a Google-distributed program that will allow us to organize and build the theme itself. Set it up on your computer by following these instructions.

  • Image Editing Software of your choice (Illustrator, Photoshop, GIMP, etc.)

    You'll use this to create your theme assets. Any software akin to those above will work.

  • Theme Template Files

    The template includes the project we’ll use to create a theme in Android Studio and a set of example assets in each folder you can use as a base for your theme. We suggest that you grab the template files before beginning. Download the template sample files here. Click here for in-depth information: Click Here

An introduction to theme templates

  • The goal of the theme template is to provide a comprehensive base for new and veteran themers alike.The overall design of the template's theme will match the system theme on the current version of Cyanogen. Community themers are encouraged to not only use this as a jump off point, but to actively help improve the template by submitting enhancements or new overlays that improve the coverage.

  • Best Practices

    When contributing new (or adding to) styles to the template, make sure to adhere to some basic rules

  • Whitespace

    Make sure that XML is clear of unnecessary whitespaces and does not use tab indentation. CyanogenMod standard indentation is 4 spaces.

  • Proper Naming

    Make sure that assets are added with the correct names or follow our proposed naming scheme.

  • Use of Common Overlay

    Cyanogen themes can make use of the common folder to reference values and styles that might be used across multiple overlays. By collecting all of this information into the common overlay, themes are easier to edit in the future and reduce size by not duplicating resources repeatedly.

  • Copyright

    Make sure to include the CyanogenMod copyright header in XML files.

  • Overlay Coverage

    Check your overlay thoroughly and make sure that you haven't changed any values incorrectly or caused readability issues.

  • Add Comments

    Add comments to style and color XMLs that explains what the values will be affecting if not immediately apparent.

Tips and Tricks

Theme Debugger is a great tool to quickly see many of the framework assets. Android SVG to VectorDrawable is a great resource to convert an SVG into a usable Android vector drawable XML.
