Theme development

This is a special interest group dedicated to improving and expanding the Drupal theme system including theme functions and templates, CSS, markup, and how contrib modules add in their functions, CSS, and markup.

for example, we'll take stock of the location and number of CSS files and discuss if the architecture can be improved through emerging frameworks like Object Oriented CSS.

We will consider the questions "What do themers need from Core in terms of CSS? Module developers? SEO specialists?" and "What's new in CSS? What does Drupal support? What's the roadmap for CSS support?"

Do you think controlling wrapper markup in the UI would be a good idea for Drupal 8 core?

Some people believe that wrapper markup should be controlled via UI so that those configuring the site can choose the proper element to wrap blocks of content in, down to fields. This question is about Drupal core itself. Contrib has been and will continue to be able to solve this problem. See Display Suite, Views, Fences, etc.

Theming Strategies in Context

Let me start by stating that I came into drupal thinking template overrides and adding/removing divs, classes and regions within the template files was the most important thing to know in order to theme in drupal. I have since learned that most of the work can be done through configuring within the administrative interface as well as by utilizing the default div's and classes in your CSS.

Stop making base themes and start developing installation profiles!

Themes section is full of very powerfull and configurable themes.
This is very helpfull if you are building a big website with complex functionality but most of us just want to develop something that's already out there and be able to slightly alter it to bend our needs.

I'm suggesting to leave the abstract website developing strategy driven by base themes and start by picking a case study and make it work.
It will save us time and will help new users to dive in.

So...
1.Pick a case study
2.Install required modules
3.Build custom content types base on the entities requiried

Drupal 7 Theme magic needed for an Interface overhaul | Self (corporate client)

Employment type: 
Contract
Telecommute: 
Allowed

Hi, I'm doing a large project with a (big, global) corporate client and would like to meet with a local theme developer to discuss a potentially big design project to customize the interface of a Drupal installation. Right now, I'm using the Adaptive Theme with Corolla, and it looks clean and works well - but the entire site needs a very serious and dramatic overhaul for "real" use and implementation/adoption. I've chosen this theme because it's easy to demo an adaptive interface (cross browser, mobile, etc), but I'm not married to it if you have way better ideas :)

Needed an overview about Drupal 7 Theme Development

Hello Everyone,
I am a web designer and a front end developer with a fine familiarity with php and coding.
I used to develop websites on wordpress but ii think it is the time to move to drupal.

Can anyone tell me... is it the same custom theme development as wordpress?

Where can I have a really step by step tutorial or videos?

Can anyone provide me with a good example of a theme?

What theme is the best starter theme for custom development?

Thank you in advance.

George.
