Custom Theme
Customize UI widgets. You can change the colors, the typography, and much more.

Basic usage

To customize the widgets, you need to specify a theme JSON object. However, this is optional; the UI comes with a default light theme. Create a new Appmixer instance with the theme option:
const appmixer = new Appmixer({
theme: {
variables: {
font: {
family: “sans-serif”
},
colors: {
neutral00: “orange”
}
}
}
});
Or/and use the option with individual widgets:
const flowManager = appmixer.ui.FlowManager({
el: "#my-flow-manager",
theme: {
variables: {
colors: {
neutral00: 'purple'
}
}
}
});

Usage with multiple themes

If you wish to switch between themes, use the set("theme") method, this will re-render the UI:
// change the theme of all widgets
appmixer.set('theme', {
variables: {
font: {
family: 'serif'
},
}
})
// or/and change the theme of a single widget
widget.set('theme', {
variables: {
colors: {
neutral00: 'green'
}
}
});

Variables

Change the overall styling with a few global CSS properties. Here is a complete example with defaults:
appmixer.set('theme', {
variables: {
font: {
family: '\'SF Pro Text\', \'Helvetica Neue\', \'Helvetica\', \'Arial\', sans-serif',
familyMono: '\'SF Mono\', \'ui-monospace\', Menlo, monospace',
weightRegular: 400,
weightMedium: 500,
weightSemibold: 600,
size: 14
},
colors: {
base: '#FFFFFF',
neutral: '#131314',
focus: '#3688EB',
error: '#DE3123',
warning: '#B56C09',
success: '#09CD96',
modifier: '#C558CF',
highlighter: '#FFA500'
},
shadows: {
backdrop: 'rgba(0 0 0 / 6%)',
popover: '0 3px 9px rgba(0 0 0 / 12%)',
icon: '0 1px 3px rgb(0 0 0 / 6%)'
},
corners: {
radiusSmall: '3px',
radiusMedium: '6px',
radiusLarge: '9px'
},
dividers: {
regular: '1px',
medium: '2px',
semibold: '3px',
bold: '6px',
extrabold: '9px'
}
}
})

Colors

The numbers in the names of colors refer to a foreground opacity of the color over the base background color:
  • neutral96 is a foreground color with 96% opacity over the background neutral00.
  • Some colors need a negative color NG on top. For example, a white text on a blue button.

Font

The numbers in size of the font refer to the defaults in pixels: size13 variable default is 13px.

Shapes

Shapes of connectors in diagrams are customizable by choosing a preset in your theme.
appmixer.set('theme', {
ui: {
shapes: {
action: "action",
trigger: "trigger",
selection: "selection"
}
}
})
Change the values of the entries to switch between presets. Here are built-ins per shape type:
action
action-vertical
action-dark
action-dark-vertical
trigger
trigger-vertical
trigger-dark
trigger-dark-vertical
selection
selection-vertical
selection-dark
selection-dark-vertical
Use Custom Shapes to create new presets or override the defaults.

Charts

Charts are customizable by a unique set of non-CSS properties. The values default to the current theme variables, except for colorway. The colorway option specifies the dynamic colors automatically picked by charts.
appmixer.set('theme', {
ui: {
charts: {
legendFontSize: 12px,
legendFontFamily: "sans-serif",
legendFontColor: "black",
tickFontSize: "black",
tickFontFamily: "monospaced",
tickFontColor: "black",
gridColor: "lightgray",
colorway: [
'#1452cc',
'#8a47c4',
'#c636b0',
'#ef2c94',
'#ff3d74',
'#ff5e52',
'#ff8230',
'#ffa600'
]
}
}
})

Selectors

The theme JSON object references the entire Appmixer SDK UI in a complex tree of selectors. Elements use a hash symbol (#) prefix and dynamic states use the at sign (@). Each branch in the tree may hold nested selectors and any valid CSS properties for the element. The selectors are available for advanced customizations, but the structure may change between the Appmixer versions.
appmixer.ui.FlowManager({
el: '#app',
theme: {
ui: {
'#FlowManager': {
background: 'lightblue',
'#header': {
padding: '0 0 24px 0',
'#buttonCreateFlow': {
color: 'yellow',
'@hovered': {
color: 'white'
}
}
}
}
}
}
});
