Power BI full theme json file example

Hi there,

It's quite hard to understand from the power BI documentation how to achieve a theme for reports.

Most of the examples in the documentation are 5 liner solutions that only show minimal theming capabilities.

They don't present how to do simple tasks such as changing all the visuals titles and setting them with a specific font size & color (for example).

It seams that almost all visuals have "title" property in which you can set font family, color & size.

However, I failed to find any example of how to target this within the json theme file.

 

The closest I got was looking at these links -

https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-desktop-report-themes/#report-theme-files-...

&

https://powerbi.tips/tools/report-theme-generator-v3/

 

The fist link is very hard to understand and it contains too much information about how the theme mechanism works behind the scenes.

Shouldn't it start with a simple example displaying a full blown theme json file?

That would be very helpful and answer most of my questions. I'm sure this would help others as well.

There's nothing like a good example to start working on something...

 

The second link is a nice tool but is not complete and lacks many settins (such as the one I'm searching for).

 

Please assist me here - I'm sure there is a simple way to theme PI reports...

It doesn't yet support formatting the title of visuals through themes. That is on PBI team's backlog.

You can also vote on https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/31543114-format-visualization-tit....

Totally with Tomeragam on this one. I posted as much in the comments of the post specified in the first link. Either that or a video tutorial from the Power BI team demonstrating at least some of this should be high on the to-do list.

I found the following GitHub page, which comes close to what you are asking.

It is not complete, but it helped me a lot.

Here is a working "dark mode" theme: https://gist.github.com/aaronsteers/5a7f2e454318cc32ea7d0af32c8b710c

... and a sample light theme: https://gist.github.com/aaronsteers/5a7f2e454318cc32ea7d0af32c8b710c#file-sample-light-theme-json

 

Both of these are my own creation, compiled using resources across the web.
