Can we use the starterkit "theme" in a plugin?


Is the starterkit theme seen as a part of the cms? I’m thinking about if I can use it in one of my plugins?

I would like to use the files to show an alernative file/folder setup of the snippets, templates and blueprints.


If its just a site you want to use, your welcome to use the free theme in my github repo. It’s a couple of years old and it was the first thing i built for Kirby, so might have a couple of rough edges PHP wise, but its a pretty simple blog theme, along the lines of starter kit. It was built using some of the guides in the kirby cookbook. Feel free to do what you like with it… the theme license definitely permits it :slight_smile:


@jimbobrjames Thanks for the suggestion. :slight_smile:

The reason for the starter kit theme is because most of the users probably know it and maybe even use it as a starting point.

The alternative is in my case to use a really simple “dummy”-theme for plain testing purposes.


I suggest you ask Bastian directly if anything speaks against using the StarterKit.


I did that yesterday (PM), no reply yet. Not sure if we should close this one or keep it open.


Bastian is alive and well, I’m sure he’ll get back to you as soon as he finds the time. You know, Kirby 3…
