Information noteSTABLE.

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.

Information noteCalculated 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".
