How do you apply a custom theme to a Distill site or blog? You have two options:
Apply it site-wide by adding a
themekey to the top-level of your
name: "distill" title: "Distill for R Markdown" theme: theme.css navbar: # (navbar definition here)
Apply to an individual article by adding a
themekey to your article’s YAML front-matter:
--- title: "The Sharpe Ratio" output: distill::distill_article: toc: true theme: theme.css ---
The second option allows for you to apply your theme to individual articles, while using a different theme for the rest of your site. Note that this is only possible for stand-alone articles within a website — you cannot apply a theme to individual blog posts only.
