Using SCSS

SCSS works much easier where you can switch the theme by simply changing the import path to the variable file. The import is located at pages/scss/pages.scss

@import "var";

Change to

// Import Vars
@import "themes/abstract/var";

you can change it to any the in the pages/scss/themes folder
