How to start with making theme from scratch? Necessary files and etc...

I am very new to Vanilla forums and would like to learn how to create a custom theme.

Inside the theme folder I have added next files and folders:

  • mytheme/addon.js
  • mytheme/screenshot.png
  • mytheme/design/custom.css
  • mytheme/views/default.master.tpl (just saying Hello world to see if its working)

Unfortunately I don't see the theme inside the dashboard.

What am I missing? What are the necessary files and what is the basic configuration to at least see my theme inside the dashboard?

Vanilla version: 2.8.3
