Hey Guys! I want to make a theme for orchest. I have experience in wordpress theme development and have done frontend dev for some years just editing php, css and html template files. Im looking at orchest and see that it uses something called stitches. (never heard of it before now) I was wondering how to setup up my dev environment if was to make a theme. Kinda feel like a complete noob atm. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Philip! We donโ€™t really have deep theming support at the moment. Some folks achieved success through a CSS extension with custom styling to create a dark mode pipeline. The CSS classes on the UI are fairly stable and could work. In the future we might expose a theming API that provides an easier surface for customization. Welcome to the community!

It is great to have you @Philip! To add to Rick's answer, to setup your dev environment please refer to the development workflow docs. If anything is unclear, then we are always here to help ๐Ÿค
