With the recent Drupal 8 launch and its further development towards maturity, it is time to have a look at the best free Drupal 8 themes available. As we did recently with Drupal 7, it was our aim was to identify the most stylish and best free Drupal 8 themes that are „ready to go“. There are not many such themes available yet, but we identified 2 which fulfills the following criteria.
Most stylish means the themes with a great design. Best is referring to the quality of the theme. This requires first of all that a theme is 'actively maintained' and under 'active development'. Secondly it requires that the theme is technically up to date (example responsiveness) and well developed and easy to administer and customize. By „ready to go“ we mean that these are themes that can very easily be customized and made ready for a live website. Thus our list excludes „developer themes“ that provide frameworks for the development of websites.
