Custom CSS in Indico 2.2


At our institute we are currently running indico 2.1.8 in production with some custom css and logos. I wanted to take a look at the next release so I built a custom wheel from the current master branch.

But I am having issues with our custom style sheets:

In the production uses the following files:

  • /opt/indico/custom/scss/e5-theme.scss
  • /opt/indico/custom/static/logo.png (mapped to /custom/static/logo.png)

To get the logo working I had to change it accordingly:

  • /opt/indico/custom/files/logo.png` (mapped to /custom/static/files/logo.png)

But for some reason the style sheets are not picked up. What am I missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In 2.2 it’s css/*.css.

Since we switched to the webpack build pipeline (ie assets are built locally) we no longer support SCSS for customizations.

Thanks! This works. It seems to me that these files are cached. Do I have to restart indico each time I make changes?

IIRC. we don’t cache them, but I’d have to check the code to be sure. Anyway, try reloading with ctrl+f5, maybe it’s just your browser’s cache…

Yes clearing the cache fixed the problem. Thanks.

Mh, the above mentioned paths are not clear to me…

I got

and I have to change that to
and converting the files from scss to css? Or am I missing something?

Yes, that’s correct.

Alright. Did that, no change what so ever :confused:
I did clear the browser cache as well. What am I missing? Runing 2.2.5
edit: Geh…just reloaded and everything is in place…forgive me :wink:
