Plone

There are a handful of pre-made themes for Plone, but with the new Diazo based theming engine built into Plone, it fairly easy for someone who knows HTML, CSS and JS to bring in a standard HTML based theme.

Adding a new theme to Plone can be started via the web.

Base themes vs sub themes

As of Fall 2016, there are 124 themes on drupal.org for Drupal 8. 

Drupal 8 uses Twig for its default templating systemTwig is a template engine for the PHP programming language. Its syntax originates from Jinja and Django templates. It's an open source product licensed under a BSD License and maintained by Fabien Potencier. The initial version was created by Armin Ronacher. Symfony2 PHP framework comes with a bundled support for Twig as its default template engine.

The templating language looks very familiar to Jinja2 or Django Templates.
