How to build your own theme

Now you have set up Liferay Plugins SDK for your theme development. It is time to take action to build a simple one.

Creating your own build properties

In order to overwrite the default configurations of the build properties, you need to create your own build properties before you compile your plugins such as portlets and themes. This can be done by following the steps given here:

  • Find out your current username on your operating system. On Windows, you can run the command echo %username% in command prompt console. Please note that the username is case-sensitive.
  • Go to the ${liferay.plugins.sdk.home} folder; for example C:\workspace_6.0.5_book\liferay-plugins-sdk-6.0.5.
  • Copy build.properties and rename it to build.${your.username}.properties ...
