This API is reliable and breaking changes are unlikely.



An object that encapsulates a theme. The object is identical to the original theme.json file but with calculated styling values and helper methods for the theme.

Note: Calculated values are different than the values in the original JSON file of the theme.

Functions, variables and fallback logic are computed to return a final value that can be used for styling. For example, the original value for "color" can be a variable like "@B80", whereas the calculated value then might be "#CCCCCC".
