Importing Existing Themes

If you used the previous ThemeBuilder to create custom styles for your application, you may have an existing JSON file with these styles. If your Kendo or Telerik UI components already support the new ThemeBuilder, you can use this JSON file as a starting point in the new ThemeBuilder.

The JSON file contains a list of SASS variables and their values. When you upload it in the new ThemeBuilder, your customizations will appear on the screen.

To import a JSON file:

  1. Navigate to

  2. Enter the credentials for your Telerik account and log in.

    • If this is your first ThemeBuilder project, the application will take you automatically to the Create New Project screen.
    • If you already have an existing ThemeBuilder project, click the Create New Project button.
  3. Enter a name for your project.

  4. Select the Kendo theme that you used as a base for the theme in your JSON file, and then click CREATE.

  5. In the THEME STYLES pane, select the dropdown with the fill drip icon and click Import Theme Builder (.json).
