Theme vs Design?

Theme vs Design?

Hello!

Your irc channel is a bit lonely [=

Anyways, I was just wondering about the difference between a theme and a
design. What's the difference between creating a new theme and a new
design?  These pages don't really make that distinction clear:

http://nestacms.com/docs/design/custom-designs

Thanks!

Hi, Danny,

A custom design is simply modifying the views and styles for Sinatra to 
change the way Nesta looks out of the box. A theme is slightly more 
packaged up so you can share with others or across your projects. It 
basically means that:

For a custom design your views go in /views and your assets in /public.
For a theme, your views are in /themes/themename/views and your assets in 
/themes/themename/public/themename/

Hope that helps,

Hey Wynn.

Nice round up on the topic. Just would like to add that in contrary to 
simple view modification themes also enable you to roll out customized 
routes within your theme package.

Cheers,
Volker
