All of our themes are built as child-themes for Beans and are installed like any other theme, via the Appearance > Themes page in the WordPress admin.
Customizing your child theme
In order to keep your modifications safe from updates, it is recommended that you add all customizations via a Beans Child-Theme Modifier plugin. The plugin lets you add custom CSS, LESS, JS or PHP via the relevant file types in the /wp-content/plugins/beans-child-theme-modfifier/custom/ folder.
Overriding UIkit's LESS variables
Any of the UIkit LESS files can be overriden via your /wp-content/plugins/beans-child-theme-modfifier/custom/uikit/ folder and will be included automatically. The source folder for all the UIkit LESS files is located in /wp-content/themes/tm-beans/lib/api/uikit/src/less/ folder.
To override any of the LESS files, simply copy the original from the source folder into your custom/uikit folder. From there, you would remove everything except the variables you are wanting to override.
