With our theming feature you are able to customize the look and feel of your Nextcloud instance according to the corporate design of your organization by replacing Nextcloud logo and color with your own assets.

The theming-app is enabled by default so the section should appear by default in your admin-settings. If not, check in the apps management that this app is enabled.

Modify the appearance of Nextcloud

You can change the following parameters of the look and feel on your instance:

  • Name (e.g. ACME Inc. Cloud)
  • Web Address (e.g.
  • Slogan
  • Color: The color of header bar, checkboxes and folder icon
  • Logo: The logo will appear in the header and on the log in page. Default has 62/34 px.
  • Login image: The background image of the login page
  • Additional legal links (Legal notice and Privacy policy link)
  • Custom header logo and favicon as alternative to auto-generation based on logo

Theming of icons

According to the parameters you have set, Nextcloud will automatically generate favicons and a header logo depending on the current logo and theming color.

This requires the following additional dependencies:

  • PHP module imagick
  • SVG support for imagick (e.g. libmagickcore-6.q16-3-extra on Debian 9 and Ubuntu 18.04)


In the advanced options of the theming app you are able to set a custom favicon in case you do not want to use the same logo resources you have set above or you do not want to install the mentioned dependencies.

Branded clients


Nextcloud GmbH provides branding services, delivering sync clients (mobile and desktop) which use your corporate identity and are pre-configured to help your users get up and running in no time. If you are interested in our advanced branding & support subscription, contact our sales team.

The theming app supports to change the URLs to the mobile apps (Android & iOS) that is shown when the webinterface is opened on one of those devices. Then there was a header shown, that redirects the user to the app in the app store. By default this redirects to the Nextcloud apps. In some cases it is wanted that this links to branded versions of those apps. In those cases the IDs and URLs can be set via the occ-command:

occ config:app:set theming AndroidClientUrl --value ""
occ config:app:set theming iTunesAppId --value "1125420102"
occ config:app:set theming iOSClientUrl --value ""
