Support themes for horizon

Registered by Matthias Runge on 2013-01-08

In many organizations, horizon should look different from standard horizon. This includes css, graphics, and also templates

Preferable, the selected theme should be loaded, if corresponding files are available; if not, default files should be used.

Whiteboard

currently, templates are put into into applications directories, like:
dashboards/project/overview/templates/overview/

To create a theme, e.g. named "custom" for the template usage.html placed in above mentioned directory you would do:
- add a config option in settings.py (or local_settings): THEME="custom"
- create a directory in above dir:
mkdir custom
cp usage.html custom/

and modify usage.html in custom.

There's a global variable named "THEME" to be used in templates.

As general rule: to customize arbitrary templates, create a directory named like the theme in the template dir, copy the file to customized there and modify that.

If there's no customized template file is found, the base file will be used.
