ChiliProject is not maintained anymore. Please be advised that there will be no more updates.

We do not recommend that you setup new ChiliProject instances and we urge all existing users to migrate their data to a maintained system, e.g. Redmine. We will provide a migration script later. In the meantime, you can use the instructions by Christian Daehn.


ChiliProject provides basic support for themes. These themes consist of custom CSS and images. So while they can override stylesheets it is currently not possible to change the actual HTML code. However, you can use a custom plugin together with your theme.

Installing a theme

  1. First, copy the theme directory into public/themes. This would result in a directory-path to application.css like:
  2. You now may need to restart ChiliProject so that it shows the newly installed theme in the list of available themes.
  3. Go to Administration -> Settings -> Display and select your newly created theme in the Theme drop-down list. Save your settings.
    Your ChiliProject installation should now be displayed using the selected theme.
