Skinning web2py

Filed under: Uncategorized — mdipierro @ 6:13 pm

Web2py comes with a default web2py/applications/views/layout.html.

You can change web2py skin by editing this file and adding requires static files in web2py/applications/static/

We have created a number of skins for you to make your life easier. We have been experimenting with three different approaches:

1) A single web2py plugin that comes with hundreds of skins downloaded from he web. You can download and try it here (it is a large plugins because it comes with lots of skins):


2) Multiple plugins where each plugin provides a different template. We converted almost all free drupal themes into web2py plugins. You can get them here:


3) A single plugin that provides one HTML layout but multiple “pure CSS” skins. You can find a here a proof of concept that links skins from zengarden


Eventually we will unify all these options in a single resource and add a simple admin interface to apply skins.
