Blank Theme available through MagentoConnect


The 'Blank Theme' for Magento is available via MagentoConnect. With 'Blank Theme' the Magento team answers the call of numerous community members out there who's been inquiring about an extra light theme to use as a basis for theme customization. With this theme we've removed all the custom CSS formerly used in Default and Modern Theme, and replaced them with minor typography and positioning CSS assignments. References to the class names were left in the CSS files to provide a solid starting ground for designers/developers. Markups were also revisited and cleaned up in theme-level.

Download, customize, and enjoy the new ultra light Magento theme!

    Have not had a chance to review the code since only available via Connect. Is it possible prototype has been removed as well?

    Am I missing something? How does one review extensions without installing via Magento Connect?

    I’ve been watching this in the incubator over the past couple months. Still some room for improvement, but it’s pretty decent overall. Anyone who wants the code without installing the extension should get it with SVN.
