Tapestry uses four layouts (i.e. themes) throughout the application. There is one main layout which is used almost everywhere, and there are three other layouts that have slight tweaks to the main layout and are used in a few specific places.
These layouts are defined in the
# Layouts application_layout: 'tapestry_default' application_layout_exam: 'tapestry_default_exam' application_layout_gmaps: 'tapestry_default_gmaps' application_layout_mobile: 'tapestry_default_mobile'
The values of these fields mean that these layout files are used in the default Tapestry installation:
app/views/layouts/tapestry_default.html.erb app/views/layouts/tapestry_default_exam.html.erb app/views/layouts/tapestry_default_gmaps.html.erb app/views/layouts/tapestry_default_mobile.html.erb
To start creating a custom theme, add the layout fields to your
file and give them new values, for instance:
# Layouts application_layout: 'my_site' application_layout_exam: 'my_site_exam' application_layout_gmaps: 'my_site_gmaps' application_layout_mobile: 'my_site_mobile'
Then copy the default layout files to
app/views/layouts/my_site.html.erb app/views/layouts/my_site_exam.html.erb app/views/layouts/my_site_gmaps.html.erb app/views/layouts/my_site_mobile.html.erb
and edit them as you see fit.
You will likely also want to create a new css file. The default file
is linked from the html files in the layout directory. So, you should copy the default css file to
and update your new my_site* files in the layout directory accordingly.
