    No worries.
    You can even take the same pattern for developing the theme for admin as i explained in shop.
    Overriding existing views might be the key after you have implemented the above process carefully.

  • Loved the package at the beginning but cannot get my way around for implementing custom theme. Not even with this tutorial

  • @tilak Can you let me know at which step you got stuck or facing any issue?

  • Hi,
    You have to change the default theme to your Custom theme by adding the view_path and assets_path and name in your themes.php file in the config folder .

    Then next step is to add all yours view files and assets file to that view_path and assets_path .

    Next you just have to create the folders and file in that path .

    One more thing you have to set your custom theme from your admin pannel .


  • Like you have this bagisto_asset; how do I create my own custom_asset?Screenshot from 2019-04-18 20-30-40.png

  • Hi,

    If you want to create your own custom asset, then inside theme packages helper function, you can create your own function as we did.

    function bagisto_asset($path, $secure = null)
    return themes()->url($path, $secure);

    After creating this function, you can use it according to your need.
