Handling assets and themes similar to views

Hey guys,

Basically here’s what I would like to do:

I’ve got theme “default” and I’m adding a theme “custom” via Yii2’s theming system. This is working great.

Now I find myself trying to figure out what to do about the assets.

I understand that what is supported is just to register your new asset bundles in the custom theme views and be done with it but this is simply not practical. Sometimes (most often) you only want to change the css files. In those cases, copying the view file to change the entire asset bundle(s) then copying most of the files of the asset bundle to change a few colors is just horrible.

Any suggestions for this? I must be missing something obvious because this just seems too counter productive.


BTW I’m using the advanced template.
