A theme creation and content migration tool for new Django CMS sites.

Add it to your INSTALLED APPS:



After chameleon is installed and you are in your project directory, you can use the added commands through the "" interface like so:

python starttheme mysite_theme

..which will create an app in your current projects directory, named "mysite_theme" with defaults and basic theming already to go. Make sure to edit the base template to change the "set_theme_id" line before using it. Now sync and migrate your database. Don't forget about collecting your static files either.
