Hello! So, I noticed that there was a way to create custom layouts for the Switch home menu, and noticed there wasn't any tool for it (At the time...).
To fix that problem, I made my own tool, and decided other people might wanna use it.

If you're not sure what a BFLYT file is, its a file format used by the switch to describe where certain things on the screen go, and other fancy layout stuff.

For those who are new to Switch theming, or don't know where to find your BFLYT files, check out this tutorial by exelix11

It supports:
  • Importing most BFLYT files.
  • Rendering panels with their panel names.
  • Importing layout patch JSON files. (Kinda broken still, doesn't display all elements correctly, and doesn't let you edit them correctly.)
  • Exporting the patch for the file. (You do still need to add it to a proper JSON patch file, it just generates the property overrides.)
It doesn't support:
  • Editing imported JSON patch files.
  • Any text panel-specific properties. (Unimplemented, for now.)
  • Some, or most BFLYT files. (Untested, works with the major home menu files.)
Anyways, this is my first real release, so go easy on me. :P

Fixed a small bug where some templates wouldn't apply properly.
First release.

It's super cool that you made this project into a website but it's always helpful to release a tool kit that way if you decide to stop running the website that others will still have a means to produce themes.

So, I actually just developed it on codepen, so I changed the link to the full page preview for it. :P
Hope that works, lol.


Do you have any template JSON to test?
The template files are actually just theme layouts, if you've ever used the Switch Theme Injector, its the layouts it has you pick. The ability to load templates is mostly for loading previously made themes and modifying them.

You can find the BFLYT files by following the great tutorial by exelix11
