Display theme type and allow to create a project and import in a single operation


I was trying to use the export/import metadata feature and noticed I couldn't import metadata in a given project if the exported metadata came from a theme whose type (Default, Bootstrap, Material, Fluent, Classic) doesn't match the target project's. Fair enough.

However, I couldn't find any easy way to find out which theme type a given project uses. Currently, I export the metadata and read the project.theme.id key in data.json file. It would be nice to add this piece of information on the ThemeBuilder home dashboard.

I also find it inconvenient to have to create a project first, choose the right theme type and then import. It would be much more efficient to create the project and import in a single operation, e.g. by adding an option to import metadata in the Create New Project modal.

Hello Fabien,


Thank you for providing your feedback and suggestions. The suggestions you have given, such as having indicators for the Theme type in the dashboard and optimizing the project creations, are great ideas. Our team will evaluate them and conduct research on the feasibility of implementing them. Thank you once again for your valuable feedback.

Meanwhile, for the sake of visibility for the community, I am posting the instructions on how to determine the theme type based on the project's metadata:

- Select or load a project and use the "Export Metadata" option.

- Open the data.json file from the generated archive.

- Inspect the project.theme.id value as suggested by Fabien.

Alternatively, you can load a selected project, and then expand the swatches menu to determine the project's theme type.
