Color Scheme

Changing colors probably is the simplest way to differenciate a website.

Dochameleon does not have CSS file. All styles are defined in Javascript, which enables easy style customization. Changing color scheme is a perfect example.

The core library has a theme folder which defines UI style. Custom website also have a theme folder. At runtime the two folder will be combined together, with the custom file replace core file if names are same.

Copy color.js into website folder /theme, then change primary and secondary color. So it becomes:

const color = {
  primary: '#283e4a',
  secondary: '#337ab7',
  tertiary: '#e0e0e0',
  font: '#393939',
  fontSecondary: '#000'

color.title = color.primary;
color.content = color.font;
color.contentSecondary = color.fontSecondary;
color.clickable = color.primary;

color.nav = {
  primary: color.primary,
  secondary: color.secondary,
  tertiary: color.tertiary,
  font: '#fff',
  fontSecondary: 'rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.8)',
  fontTertiary: 'rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.6)'

color.footer = '#808080';

module.exports = color;

run dev server again, npm run start. See what happens.
