Vali is a free and responsive dashboard theme built with Bootstrap, PugJS and SASS. It's fully customizable and modular. You don't need to add the code, you will not use.
That's why I made Vali. The goal is, a light weight yet expendable and good looking theme. The theme has all the features required in a dashboard theme but this features are built like plug and play module.

Compilation of source files
The theme is built using SASS and PugJs which are in turn compiled into HTML and CSS by Grunt. If you are not familiar with Grunt, here is an article to get started. If you are familiar with Grunt follow the instruction mentioned bellow to edit or customize the source.
If you don't want to edit theme you can use the compiled files directly inside
npm install command in project root directory to install and build dependencies.
grunt watch task to edit and compile source files on the go or use
grunt build task to compile all source files at once.
The layout is built using PugJs. All the layout source files are located in
src/pug directory. There are two sub directories inside this directory:
layout- It the common HTML skeleton layout which is extended by all the pages
includes- It include layout partials like sidebar and navbar and footer
The styles are written in SASS. All the style files are located in
src/sass directory. There is a file in this directory
main.sass which imports all the files and exported as main.css There are four sub directories inside this directory:
1-tools- It includes styles of all the external libraries and a file
_var.sasswhich contains the variables required for the application
2-basics- It contains the basic style like overall structure css and theming options
3-component- It contains the styles for the components like card, widgets, sidebar, navbar etc
4-pages- It contains the styles for the specific pages like login page, lock-screen page
To customize the primary color of the theme and sidebar you need to change the variables in the
1-tools/_var.sass. The detailed documentation about changing the colors is mentioned in this file itself.
If you don't want to use particular component or plug-in just comment the import statement for that particular component in
src/sass/main.sass and compile the SASS by running
grunt build command.
Please note that the Bootstrap source files in this theme are heavily modified to maintain the look and feel of this theme but the HTML markup remains same for every component. Also Bootstrap Glyphicons in this theme are replaced by Font-Awesome Icons.
