Adobe Commerce The Complete Theme Development
Guide for 2022
  • A theme is an Adobe Commerce application
    component that provides a consistent look and
    feel (visual design) for an entire application
    area (for example, the storefront or Adobe
    Commerce admin) by combining custom templates,
    layouts, styles, or images.
  • Before you start working on your own Adobe
    Commerce 2 theme development,make sure the
    following requirements are met
  • You have some coding experience with Adobe
  • You have some basic knowledge of Adobe Commerce 2
  • Adobe Commerce 2 is installed and operational on
    your local host, and you have access to the
    frontend and backend.
  • Step 1 Develop a Theme Directory
  • Go to your Adobe Commerce 2 root
  • Create a new directory under the frontend
    directory named after your theme vendor.
  • Make a directory for your Adobe Commerce 2 theme
    in your theme vendor directory.
  • Step 2 Create Your Adobe Commerce 2 Theme
  • Now, create the theme.xml file
  • This is a preview thumbnail image that appears in
    the Adobe Commerce 2 admin on our theme page.
  • If you do not have this file in the correct
    location, you will receive an error when
    accessing your theme page via Adobe Commerce 2
  • Step 3 Create a Composer Package for Your Adobe
    Commerce 2 Theme
  • To register the package on a packaging server,
    place a composer.json file in your theme
  • This file is included in the theme dependency
  • Step 4 Include Registration.php in Your Custom
    Adobe Commerce 2 Theme Development.
  • To register your theme in the Adobe Commerce
    system, create a registration.
  • Php file in your theme directory
  • Step 5 Apply and Configure Adobe Commerce 2
    Custom Theme in Admin
  • Once youve added your theme to the file system,
    everything is in place for you to activate your
    theme and apply it to your store
  • Ensure that your theme appears on this list.
  • After youve decided on a theme, click the Save
    Config button to clear the cache.
  • Step 6 Configure Image Properties in Your Theme
  • This file is required for the theme if the
    product image sizes of your custom Adobe Commerce
    theme development are different from the parent
    theme sizes.
  • For example, you make the category grid view
    product images by specifying the size of 350 x
    350 pixels. Copy the view.xml file from the etc
    directory of your parent theme to your themes
    etc directory.
  • Step 7 Create a Custom Adobe Commerce Theme Logo
  • Create Adobe Commerce Theme/layout directories
    and add the following code to a default.xml file
    to declare a theme logo.
  • The logo filename was m2-logo.png, and the logo
    size was 350 x 350 pixels. You are free to use
    your own logo filename and size.
  • Step 8 Theme Inheritance
  • You can use an existing theme as the foundation
    for custom Adobe Commerce theme development
    customizations or minor store design upgrades
    such as holiday decorations.
  • If a view file is not found in your custom Adobe
    Commerce theme, the Adobe Commerce system will
    look through the default themes module files or
  • The fallback mechanism for static files such as
    CSS, fonts, images, and JavaScript, as well as
    other theme files, is entirely different.
  • A parent theme is defined in the child theme via
    a theme.xml file.
  • Step 9 Theme Design
  • The main focus of this section will be styling,
    which will primarily involve editing the CSS or
    LESS in this case.
  • Before we begin styling the theme, you should be
    aware of three different methods for styling the
  • Compilation on the Server
  • Grunt for Server-Side Compilation
  • Client-Side Collection
  • You can add theme-specific styles to this file,
    save it, and then reload your browser. With
    client-side compilation on, youll notice that
    there are no styles when the browser first loads.
    This is due to the fact that Adobe Commerce is
    compiling the LESS at the time. After a few
    seconds, you should see the styles appear,
    hopefully with your custom styles.
  • Step 10 Modify Theme Layout
  • You must place the layout file with the same name
    in the following location to override the theme
  • These files take precedence over the following
  • Always use the directory name page layout instead
    of the layout when overriding page layout files.
  • The layout overriding mechanism allows for a
    great deal of customization. I advise you not to
    make the following changes
  • Change neither the name nor the alias of the
  • Change the page type of the parent handle.
