Reviewed this, and didn't find anything major. There is a small spelling error in ./README.txt:102: preferrably => preferably, which also finds.

Great looking theme!

Hello @binu-varghese,

Manual Review
Made a git clone of your sandbox.

Secure code

  1. (*) The theme settings, 5 social media links are input fields that are directly used in the page template without using any Twig filter or utility function. So these fields can be abused to enter scripted code.

Coding style & Drupal API usage

  1. There is no Base theme key in your It is not required, but if you don't deliver all possible twig templates in your theme, you're theme can break functionality when Drupal can't find the proper twig template(s). If you use Classy as a base theme your theme will always have a fall back for twig templates. If you don't want to use the css of classy you can disable it with a libraries-override. See Defining a theme with an .info.yml file

There are not a lot of possibilities to make an advanced subtheme for this theme but for small sites that would not be the case.
For the rest, it's a nice looking theme.

Binu Varghese’s picture

Thanks @Martijn de Wit for the review!

1. Have now added the 'base theme' key to the info.yml file.

2. As for the 5 social media links, these gets outputted from the page.html.twig file via {{ }} so sanitized automatically.

"The Twig theme engine now auto escapes everything by default. That means that every string printed from a Twig template (e.g. anything between {{ }}) gets automatically sanitized if no filters are used."


If you have any specific filter to suggest, I shall be happy to incorporate it.

Also, this project been lying here for more than 3 months from last review in-spite of PAReview: review bonus for no apparent reason.

How do we proceed from here? Thanks in advance!

Martijn de Wit’s picture

Hello @binu-varghese,

Thank you, I didn't know everything between the {{ }} is now sanitized.

Hi @Martijn de Wit, that's all right!

RTBC anyone :)

manual review:

  • bootstrap_mint_preprocess_page(): the (bool) casts don't make sense here. >You are adding up numbers, so you should cast to numbers instead, right? Did you mean to cast to (int)?

Otherwise looks good to me.

Thanks for your contribution, Binu!

I updated your account so you can promote this to a full project and also create new projects as either a sandbox or a "full" project.

Here are some recommended readings to help with excellent maintainership:

You can find lots more contributors chatting on IRC in #drupal-contribute. So, come hang out and stay involved!

Thanks, also, for your patience with the review process. Anyone is welcome to participate in the review process. Please consider reviewing other projects that are pending review. I encourage you to learn more about that process and join the group of reviewers.

Thanks to the dedicated reviewer(s) as well.

Binu Varghese’s picture

Thanks @klausi for granting the "full" project status.

The (bool) casts used here is on purpose. This is basically to cast to either '0' or '1' (in the event of a region being used or not).

e.g. If we use only 2 of the 4 regions, say 'footer_top_one' and 'footer_top_two' then:

$blocks_n_footer_top = (bool) $variables['page']['footer_top_one'] + (bool) $variables['page']['footer_top_two'] + (bool) $variables['page']['footer_top_three'] + (bool) $variables['page']['footer_top_four']

= 1 + 1 + 0 + 0
= 2

I would also like to thank @manojapare, @userium and @Martijn de Wit for their time in reviewing my project.
Thanks all!
