---------------------- To customize the theme and layout in a Refine app with MUI, you can follow these steps: 1. Create a custom theme using the createTheme() method. You can customize the theme with your desired configuration variables. Here's an example:
import { createTheme, responsiveFontSizes } from "@mui/material";

let customTheme = createTheme({
palette: {
primary: {
main: "#330f49",
},
secondary: {
main: "#45d0c8",
},
},
});

customTheme = responsiveFontSizes(customTheme);
import { createTheme, responsiveFontSizes } from "@mui/material";

let customTheme = createTheme({
palette: {
primary: {
main: "#330f49",
},
secondary: {
main: "#45d0c8",
},
},
});

customTheme = responsiveFontSizes(customTheme);
Source: Create Custom Theme (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/mui/theming#theme-create-custom-theme) 2. Pass the custom theme to the ThemeProvider:
import { ThemeProvider, CssBaseline, GlobalStyles } from "@mui/material";

const App: React.FC = () => {
return (
<ThemeProvider theme={customTheme}>
<CssBaseline />
<GlobalStyles styles={{ html: { WebkitFontSmoothing: "auto" } }} />
// Your app components
</ThemeProvider>
);
};
import { ThemeProvider, CssBaseline, GlobalStyles } from "@mui/material";

const App: React.FC = () => {
return (
<ThemeProvider theme={customTheme}>
<CssBaseline />
<GlobalStyles styles={{ html: { WebkitFontSmoothing: "auto" } }} />
// Your app components
</ThemeProvider>
);
};
Source: Passing the Theme to ThemeProvider (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/mui/theming#theme-passing-the-theme-to-themeprovider) 3. To customize the layout, you can follow the Custom Layout (https://refine.dev/docs/advanced-tutorials/custom-layout/) tutorial. Remember that these customizations should be done in your src/App.tsx file. If you need more information or examples, you can refer to the Refine MUI Theming documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/mui/theming). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
Custom Layout | refine
refine supports any layout you want with no restrictions and also provides default layouts with its UI packages. You are free to use them or create your own with the help of refine's hooks and components. You can also use the swizzle command to customize the default layouts and adapt them to your needs.
Theme | refine
Theme specifies the color of the components, the darkness of the surfaces, level of shadow, appropriate opacity of ink elements, etc. You can either create your own Theme or use Themes that provide from refine. Theme provides a way to your app's design to meet them.

Does this mean I can no longer choose it from the cli options?

if you want to customize the theme follow the bot answer. the cli will only rep you the project you selected if you select MUI then follow the tuts on how to customize it.
