You can change the look and feel of the dashboard by applying the theme prop to your Dashboard component. For example

import Vizzly from '@vizzly/dashboard';
const MyAppDashboard = () =>
      rowLimit: 6,
      // more theme properties in here...

See a full example of the theme property here (opens in a new tab)!


By default the dashboard uses Version 2 theme. If you find your current design was built around the previous design you can set the version number to 1. To change you can set the property to version: 1. See example below.

The theme type definition hasn't changed between version 1 and version 2.

    version: 1,
    version: 2,


Apart from the detail and rowLimit props, the theme properties aren't mandatory. If you don't specify a value, default values are used.

CSSProperties allows typing for styles using CSSType. You're able to use type assertion or module augmentation to add properties or an index signature of your own.

Design Tokens with CSS Custom properties

The Theme API accepts Custom properties, also known as CSS variables. If you have defined your Design Tokens in a CSS file or in the head tag of your application, these can be used in the Vizzly Theme API.
