Edit custom themes in the Dev Hub?

I've managed to add a custom theme to a Qlik Sense Enteprise environment through the dev-hub by adding it as an new extension, but now I'm trying re open the theme project from the dev-hub interface, but cant figure out how to do it.

Do anyone of you have a tip on how to access the custom theme files (.qext, .json and .css) from the dev-hub interface?

Hi,

I think you can do it

www.your server.com/dev-hub/extension-editor/#qext{ThemeName}

this will work 

Instead of ThemeName change the name of your theme

Note : ThemeName : should be the HRTheme

based on the theme i uploaded as a example

To work with it 

  1. add it to extension folder
  2. go to dev-hub
  3. go to this URL if you are using QS Desktop http://localhost:4848/dev-hub/extension-editor/#qext{HRTheme}

Themes are not managed through the Dev hub. Just use your preferred code editor

I normally use an text editor, but on this server my user did not have an vpn to the access the files.

Because I where able to add the theme through the devhub I assumed that I where able to edit it in a later stage.

There may be a workaround, create a text file called wbfolder.wbl in the same folder as your theme (will need access to do this). This should contain a list of all of the files in the project, separated by a semi-colon. Then you can access it through the dev hub.

Not sure it is recommended/supported though.

Thanks for the reply @Lisa_P .

It was a good suggestion, but unfortunately it did not work as intended.
