This is a case study of creating a modern responsive theme for the nc.gov portal website using a Barrio sub-theme to leverage the Bootstrap 5 framework. The Barrio theme is one of the most popular themes and provides a great base to start building a theme with using its sub-theme. It provides a large component library, a color module, Flexbox grid, a SVG icon library and modular SASS stylesheets using GULP preprocessor. Using Barrio as a base theme saves on cost and time in development.
