No code - no problem!

Adaptivetheme for Drupal 8 is designed for people who don’t code, or for those who only want to write a bit of CSS but still want a sleek and sophisticated theme for todays mobile web.


  • Theme generator - create new sub-themes or clone existing ones in seconds.
  • Layout generator - unlimited responsive layout options:
    • Generate page template suggestions.
    • Set layout per suggestion, per row (a group of regions), per responsive breakpoint.
    • Use any breakpoint group - uses cores Breakpoints module.
    • Set width globally and per row - want one row to be full width, no problem, and great for that hero image or slideshow!
  • Create new layout regions in seconds with simple edits to a text file (and clear cache, of course).
  • Breakpoint module support - ships with robust breakpoints for todays mobile touch and desktop devices. Used to setup the layouts, responsive menus and for the hide/show blocks features.
  • Layout-Plugins included - full support for Display Suite and Panels, all responsive!
  • Google and Typekit font support - unlimited fonts applied easily to over 20 seperate site elements.
  • Responsive menus - choose from 8 different menu styles and set the breakpoint, include off-canvas, hamburger slidedown, dropdowns, overlay and more.
  • Responsive local tasks, responsive pagers, responsive tables, we love responsive design!
  • Horizontal login block, hide the search button, use placeholders, configure breadcrumbs, hide comment titles, feed icons, and more, it just goes on.
  • CSS shortcodes- tweak every imaginably element, hundreds of options.
  • CSS Animations - easy to apply in a few seconds with short-codes - slide, bounce, and fade your heart out.
  • Slideshows and carousels built in (flexslider) - create unlimited slideshows with reusable settings and simple copy/paste code for blocks, nodes etc.
  • Image field positioning & captions - set image alignment & captions per content type and per view mode.
  • Touch icon support for iOS - default set included.
  • Hide or show blocks in any breakpoint - don’t want something in mobile, hide it!
  • Easily include custom CSS via the front end or in code.
  • Color module support out of the box - just select it when generating a theme.
  • Uses FontAwesome, because it's awesome. We replace pretty much every icon from core with FA, and more.
  • SVG icons (search, rss & forum icons) for fully scalable images that look great at any size, anywhere.
  • Many JS plugins included - all loaded from the super-fast Cloudflare CDN.
  • IE8/legacy browser support (off by default), stuck on IE8, no problem, flick a switch and you're there.

Put simply - Adaptivetheme D8 is the power in your hands to create sophisticated modern themes for your website in minutes. It’s really that easy.

There is absolutely no requirement to write code or even copy/paste/search/replace to build themes with ATD8, those days are gone (machines do it better), but if you really want to...

ATD8 For Coders

ATD8 is built using modern front end dev tools such as SASS and Grunt. It includes an extensive UIKit built with SASS and uses Susy2 for layout, Compass vertical rhythm and Modular Scale. Browser prefixes are applied using PostCSS. A .csslintrc file is included. Useful task-runners are setup and ready to go in the Gruntfile.

Almost all JS plugins etc are loaded from AT Core. Home grown JS is uglified, 3rd party plugins are loaded from Cloudflare (except YUI for IE8 support which we run Selectivizr on as it's more reliable than the jQuery version). The layout system can be completely replaced (i.e you want to use Zen Grids, no problem). Got a question, just ask in the issue queue.

You need, (for npm) and installed. Get all that installed then fire off some commands from the theme root...

bundle install
npm install
grunt watch
