PyboomSkin is a black and green skin, with some glossy and reflection design.


PyboomSkin is a product that adds a new style to a Plone portal.  It adds a new skin selection to the 'portal_skins' tool (called PyboomSkin), and registers a custom stylesheet (called pyboomskin.css) with the 'portal_css' tool.

PyboomSkin is based on DIYPloneStyle 2.1, a skeleton product ready for building new graphical designs for Plone.
