Marketplace / Theme Module


This section is under revision.

Themes can also be published via our Marketplace. For this purpose the Theme must be integrated into a basic module.

Theme Module

You can find a full documentation about Modules in our Developer documentation.

This section gives only a brief overview of the most important steps to create a Theme Module.

To begin, you need to:

  • Choose a unique module ID e.g. "theme-example1". All theme module IDs should start with "theme-".
  • Create a folder named by the module ID at /protected/modules or another module folder.



A description and overview of your Theme features. See Example


A file which contains a curated, chronologically ordered list of changes for each version. See Example


Place all Theme related files in this directory (Same structure as directly under /themes.).



namespace yourName\humhub\theme\example1\Module;

class Module extends \humhub\components\Module
* @inheritdoc
public $resourcesPath = 'resources';


"id": "theme-example1",
"name": "Example1 Theme",
"description": "A very beautiful example design.",
"keywords": [
"version": "1.0",
"humhub": {
"minVersion": "1.7"
"screenshots": ["resources/screen1.jpg","resources/screen2.jpg", "resources/screen3.jpg", "resources/screen4.jpg"]


return [
'id' => 'theme-example1',
'class' => 'yourName\humhub\theme\example1\Module',
'namespace' => 'yourName\humhub\theme\example1'

resources/screen1.jpg - resources/screen4.jpg

Add some screenshots for the marketplace. Are defined in the file module.json.


Add a square icon at least a 128x128px PNG image.



You can use your HumHub Community account to register our Partner Portal.

First a partner profile must be created and then the Theme can be uploaded and published in the Marketplace section of the Partner backend.

Please note: There will be a review process by our team for new and updated modules.

Publish updates

To publish an updated version of the theme in our Marketplace, at least the following steps are necessary:

  • Increase version number in module.json.
  • Adjust the minimum version in module.json to the HumHub version used to create the stylesheet.
  • Adapt the docs/


  • Simple color variations of the standard templates are not allowed as Marketplace Theme.
  • Each module must provide a icon (for the Marketplace) and at least three screenshots.
  • During the beta phase of a new HumHub major version, an updated theme module version must be provided in the Marketplace.
  • Overwritten View templates must be listed in the and HumHub major version changes must be adapted.
  • Similar Themes with different variants (e.g. colors, icons) must be provided as single module.
