Start a New Theme with Starterkit for Drupal 8, 9, and 10

When it's time to start a custom Drupal theme from scratch (especially if you're new to Drupal theming), we recommend using Starterkit. Starterkit helps you get a new theme up and running by scaffolding a set of theme files with sensible defaults, saving you from a bunch of repetitive work.

In this tutorial we'll:

  • Learn what Starterkit is
  • Discuss when you should--and should not--use Starterkit
  • Walk through how to use Starterkit to generate a new Drupal theme

By the end of this tutorial you should be able to explain the use case for Starterkit and understand how to use it to start a new custom theme.
