Theme_Handlebar is a child theme of Moodle's new core theme Boost.
It is built on Bootstrap4 and Mustache templates.

In addition to Boost's preset settings, Handlebar adds:

  1. Presets - presets added by ftp/ssh to the theme/scss/presets folder will be automatically added to the presets drop down, in addition to those uploaded via the user interface.
  2. Colours - additional brand colour pickers to fine tune the selected presets, along with the standard pre/post raw scss custom settings.
  3. Content - a footnote setting to add standard content into the footer space
  4. Heading and images - add a page background image and a default heading background image - the heading image can be overridden at a course level by adding an image banner to the course summary files. A separate login page background image can also be added.
  5. Social networking icons - a panel of social icons can be created, including self-defined icons.
  6. Custom block regions - a top region that stays above main content on small screens and several popup modal block regions accessible on course pages only
  7. A course management popup page for staff and course info popup page for students

    I don't know that am still relevant here as I am looking for highly furnished, decorated & working environment for an ideal office or my new online cloth business. In fact, at the present time, many people prefer to work outside individuals & use proper office space instead of a co-working space as it tends to motivate and make them feel like be a part of the larger organization.
