despite being a noob in general I installed NodeBB yesterday. I already have a design ready I want to implement, now I just have to do it.
I've been meddling with the Vanilla theme (just to get a feel for how everything works), as it seems to contain all the components that I need for my theme. While I don't want to create a Vanilla child theme, I want to start off with the Vanilla files, then strip away code layer by layer just to get an idea how everything behaves and fits together.
Since I don't generally use the command line, my question is this: How can I easily copy the Vanilla theme (to not mess up the original one) to start fuc*ing it up?
I've tried copying the theme in the node_modules folder, but I can't seem to select the theme in the ACP later (despite changing the theme.json). Is there any other/better way?
