Alpha - Factor Theme

Alpha, a minimal portfolio theme for Factor ideal for individuals of creative professions.


To add Alpha to your Factor app, all you have to do is add it as a dependency:

npm add  @factor/theme-alpha

This will add it to your package.json and should be all you need to do to get it running.


Once you've added Alpha to your app, you can easily customize its settings via factor-settings.

The theme's settings can be referenced here.

To change any setting in this theme's factor-settings file, all you need to do is add the same setting in the settings file in your application.

As an example, adding the below to your factor-settings file will override the nav value in the theme. In effect, customizing the navigation.

export default {
  site: {
    nav: [
        path: "/",
        name: "My Home",

Overriding Components

If you'd like to get more advanced with your customization, its also easy to override any templates or components used by the theme (or its plugins) via factor-settings.

As an example, to override the single post template used by the theme, first find the component in settings:

export default {
  // other settings
  components: {
    blogIndex: (): Promise<any> => import("./blog/blog-index.vue"),
    blogSingle: (): Promise<any> => import("./blog/blog-single.vue"),
    featuredImage: (): Promise<any> => import("./blog/el-featured-image.vue"),
    authorDate: (): Promise<any> => import("./blog/widget-author-date.vue"),
    customSingleHeader: (): Promise<any> => import("./blog/el-single-header.vue"),
  // other settings

You'll see that it is being loaded in as blogSingle, so all you have to do in your app to override with my-special-single.vue is:

export default {
  // other settings
  components: {
    blogSingle: (): Promise<any> => import("./my-special-single.vue"),
  // other settings

Making sure to copy the original or create a new file in your app at that location.

Adding Additional Plugins, Routes

It's easy to build on top of the baseline functionality that themes create for you.

You can add additional routes and plugins in the standard ways discussed in the Factor Docs.
