Dynamically Change YII2 Theme, change theme in yii2 framework.
  1. Create a themes directory in web folder in frontend or backend where you want to change theme.

  2. place your theme folder inside themes directory.

  3. change $css and $js variables in AppAsset.php in assets folder in frontend or backend like:

    public $css = [
        //'css/site.css',
        'themes/theme_folder/css/font-awesome.min.css',
        'themes/theme_folder/css/slicknav.css',
        'themes/theme_folder/css/style.css',
        'themes/theme_folder/css/responsive.css',
        'themes/theme_folder/css/animate.css',
        'themes/theme_folder/css/colors/red.css',
        //'themes/margo/asset/css/bootstrap.min.css',
    ];
    public $js = [
            'themes/theme_folder/js/jquery.migrate.js',
            'themes/theme_folder/js/modernizrr.js',
            'themes/theme_folder/js/jquery.fitvids.js',
            'themes/theme_folder/js/owl.carousel.min.js',
            'themes/theme_folder/js/nivo-lightbox.min.js',
            //'themes/theme_folder/js/jquery-2.1.4.min.js',
            //'themes/theme_folder/asset/js/bootstrap.min.js'
    ];
  4. Do not include core bootstrap css, bootstrap js and jquery js as these are core APIs that are provided by Yii2. I have commented them above.

  5. Use the below code to reference theme resources (css, js, images etc) in your main.php layout file or other site pages:

        <?= Yii::getAlias('@web/themes/theme_folder') ?>/images/margo.png
  6. There is no need to include css or js files in layouts->main.php file ­čÖé
