Stephan Hesmer and Jonathan Booth have open sourced a new project, called Theme PAA for IBM WebSphere Portal which provides access to the Portal 8.5 Theme as a PAA (Portal Application Archive) deliverable. Below is their description. Stephan also blogged recently about the theme enhancements in 8.5.

"This project provides access to the IBM WebSphere Portal 8.5 Theme as a PAA deliverable.

The Theme PAA is a great tool to quickly get started with your own theme as well as a great tool to demonstrate how you can package up your theme in a PAA for staging to production purposes. Additionally this Theme PAA demonstrates two theme modes: WebDAV and WAR file. It contains two separate themes and even though they look 100% identical, they are deployed once using the WebDAV repository and once using a second WAR file for static resources. Both themes that come with the PAA are equivalent in function.

Once the two themes are installed you can start to customize them and adapt them to your needs. For more information on theme customization please look here."
