Why aren't the scss files in the prime-designer/assets/designer folder included in the PrimeNG project? It is quite difficult to build PrimeNG themes and share them with open source projects since these files are not open source.

I am working on an open-source project https://github.com/kervi/kervi and have begun to incorporate PrimeNG in the UI section, mostly because PrimeNG provides all of the components required in my project. Second, I considered creating a CSS style and distributing it with my project, enabling users to tweak it to their own tastes.

Now I'm not sure whether I'll keep using PrimeNG. I'm aware that I may include the built CSS files and my theme scss files in my project. However, it does not seem like open source because of the reliance on a closed source product that must be paid for.

I appreciate that designing attractive themes generates cash for you, but I don't believe that open-sourcing the basic theme API scss files would undercut your own company. It takes a long time and a lot of talent to design the themes you offer, thus it's far cheaper to simply purchase your themes than to attempt to make one myself.

Also, I have no objection to purchasing the designer since it expedites the process of generating my own theme for my open-source project.

Hi,

Designer's scss folders are not included because Designer NG is a commercial product. Making it open source is not an option right now. However you can still use up to 42 free themes & variants and customize or override defaults as you wish.
