Themes & Plugins

1 min read July 27, 2016 at 10:50pm on Getting Started


Postleaf templates are built with a simple but powerful template system called Handlebars. If you've never used Handlebars before, you're in for a treat.

Handlebar templates are easy to create and don't require any PHP programming whatsoever.

The easiest way to get started is to open the .hbs files in content/themes/range and play around with them. They're just HTML files with {{placeholders}}, so it won't be long before you're building your own themes. For more info about themes, check out these posts.

Tip: You might need to configure your text editor to open .hbs files.


Plugins aren't supported in the beta release of Postleaf, but they're coming soon. I want to creating a solid foundation before we start building things on top of it.

In the meantime, let me know how you'd like to extend Postleaf by tweeting to @postleafapp!
