I am very new to Magento 2.1.0. but want to install HTML theme (theme integration). When I deploy static content and also in pub folder I can see my .css file under css/source folder.

My theme Structure: <VendorName>/<themeName>/web/css/source.

and after that include my CSS and JS files into the Magento_Theme/layout/default_head_blocks.xml file. Below is my code:


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <meta charset="utf-8">
        <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

        <css src="css/source/bootstrap.min.css" />
        <css src="css/source/font-awesome.min.css"/>
        <css src="css/source/slick.css"/>
        <css src="css/source/style.css"/>

        <script src="js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
        <script src="js/jquery.min.js"></script>
        <script src="js/scripts.js"></script>
        <script src="js/slick.min.js"></script>


I flush the cache, deploy the static content but when I see view source in the browser I am not able to my CSS and js file.

So can anyone help me?

Magento ver:2.1.0

  • In Magento 2, you can not see your CSS and JS in view source, for that you need to check in browser network and console tab (f12) because all these files running in the background. Better to add some CSS property and check in the frontend. Don't forget to flush the cache and to run static-content command. – Nits May 25 '18 at 10:06

To apply a theme:

In Admin, go to CONTENT > Design > Configuration.

A Design Configuration page opens. It contains a grid with the available configuration scopes.

For example:

enter image description here

You need to refresh your cache (clear cache)

php bin/magento cache:flush

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

For more information check Magento official document.
