Theming & Customization

Global Stylesheet / Javascript

QOR Admin will auto-load javascripts and stylesheet files based on your Admin's SiteName

For example, say you set the site name to Qor Demo, QOR Admin will look up {qor view paths}/assets/javascripts/qor_demo.js and {qor view paths}/assets/stylesheets/qor_demo.css, and load them if present.

View Paths

When QOR Admin render pages, it looks up templates with AssetFS.

A default implemention of AssetFS is looking up templates from the filesystem with pre-registered view paths.

it includes:

  • {current_path}/app/views/qor
  • {current_path}/vendor/
  • $GOPATH/src/

Checkout AssetFS for more details


QOR Admin provides flexible template customization. You can define your own theme for a resource.

A custom theme for a Resource in QOR Admin can be applied using a custom javascript and CSS file. To apply a custom theme, set the theme name using the UseTheme method, this will load assets/javascripts/fancy.js and assets/stylesheets/fancy.css from the theme path.

For example:

product := Admin.AddResource(&Product{})

This means {qor view paths}/themes/fancy/assets/stylesheets/fancy.css and {qor view paths}/themes/fancy/assets/javascripts/fancy.js will be loaded when request products.

  • {qor view paths}/themes/{theme name}/{resource params}/{template}
  • {qor view paths}/themes/{theme name}/{template}
  • {qor view paths}/{resource params}/{template}
  • {qor view paths}/{template}


  • Overwrite layout.tmpl for the whole site

    You can create a file named layout.tmpl and put into {current_path}/app/views/qor

  • Overwrite layout.tmpl for a resource

    If you want to overwrite layout for a specified resource, you could put the file to {qor view paths}/{resource's params}, e.g:

    To overwrite Product's layout, create a file named layout.tmpl and put it into {current_path}/app/views/qor/products

  • Overwrite layout.tmpl for a collection of resources

    Set same theme name for those resources with UseTheme res.UseTheme('fancy') Then put layout.tmpl to {current_path}/app/views/qor/themes/fancy/layout.tmpl
