I am trying to add custom CSS without creating a theme and these are my steps.

Step 1 I create a mycss.css file

body{
 background-color:green;

 }

and this is the path

app/code/vendor/module/view/frontend/web/css/mycss.css

Step 2 I create a test_index_index.xml file with this content

?xml version="1.0"?>
     <page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_layout.xsd">
       <head>
          <css src="vendor_Module::css/mycss.
     </head> 
       <body>
         <referenceContainer name="content">
              <block class="vendor\Module\Block\class" template="vendor_Module::class.phtml"/>
         </referenceContainer>  
     </body> 
    </page>

Which is located at

app/code/vendor/module/view/frontend/layout/test_index_index.xml

Unfortunately, on my frontend nothing changes. Does anybody know why?

  • Why you just can't create a custom theme? It would make development a lot easier.

  • It was successful with the theme but I wanted to try to decrease the files and the complexity only to a css and a xml file because the only needed change is to margin a text field with 10 px. Feb 27, 2018 at 9:57
  • Sooner or later you will need to do some more changes. There is no project where all you need is 10px margin. Also in my opinion, themes adds some clarity not complexity.
