Blank CSS theme to start a custom theme

What functionality is missing? What is unsatisfying with the current situation?

All the themes available on World Anvil so far have variables and certain styles predefined. Even the default theme that most users start their own themes with.

These default styles have to be found and overwritten, which is sometimes not so easy. Especially if there is an !important in a theme, which can easily happen, it takes some tricks to overwrite it.

How does this feature request address the current situation?

An empty theme that only contains the base styles of Bootstrap and the elements we are not allowed to change would be helpful because it gives us as users a blank canvas on which we can develop our own theme.

While for beginners a basic theme that they can easily change in certain areas is good, for advanced users it is often easier to work from scratch without having to deal with possibly defined variables or colours.

What are other uses for this feature request?

This "blank theme" probably also helps when creating article-based CSS, because you can deal with the actual effects of the styles you create beforehand. In the long run, I think it will also improve the community's understanding of CSS and its limitations if there is no predefined "fallback theme" that partially catches the mistakes.
