Update: We've developed a new basetheme from the ground up for Magento 2. Check it out in the live demo of UB MegaMall theme here

Magento extension JM Basetheme is our ambition to deliver one of the best tools for Magento geeks to customize our Magento themes.

For just a little look back, there was a time we got stuck with default colors like Black, White, Blue, Red and so on. You wished for a touch out-of-default? Our Magento team did offer a CSS file in which you could modify the codes yourself, provided that you had time to kill and experience about CSS.

It was not convenient at all, so it came the launch of JM Basetheme - a powerful tool in which you could personalize sites with our Magento themes at ease. Here comes livelier shades of colors - Emerald, Maroon, Ghostwhite, Turquoise, LavenderBlush, whatever in just some clicks!
