DecisionUse Claro for the Drupal administration theme


Claro offers a modern, responsive, and accessible interface that showcases Drupal's capabilities from the outset.

Drupal sites will use the Claro administration theme to ensure a consistent client experience. Developers will use Claro to ensure accessibility and compatibility with contributed modules.


Standardizing its use across all Drupal sites ensures consistency for editors and developers across different sites. Using a built-in Drupal administration theme negates concerns about potentially unsupported/insecure contributed themes or an unfamiliar editorial experience.

There may be specific client needs that Claro does not serve "out of the box". These should be addressed through custom code or contributed modules, and not changing the administration theme.
