As of version 0.6.0 (r818), Redmine provides basic support for themes. Redmine themes can override stylesheets only (like application.css).

Installing a theme

1. First, copy the theme-directory into ../public/themes/. This would result in a directory-path to application.css like:


2. You now may need to restart Redmine so that it shows the newly installed theme in the list of available themes.

2. Go to "Administration -> Settings" and select your newly created theme in the "Theme" drop-down list. Save your settings.

Redmine should now be displayed using the selected theme.

Theme list

  • Default theme - the default Redmine theme (included).
  • Alternate theme - a derivative of the default theme including issuelist-colouring based on issue's priority (included).
  • Classic theme - the more classic-looking redmine theme (included).
  • Basecamp theme - a Redmine-port of 37signals® Basecamp® theme.
  • Squeejee theme - a dark-theme showing Redmine's theme-capabilities.
  • Watersky theme - a blue theme based on Redmine Alternate theme.
