I'd want for my Customizer to use a custom skin, or, well, enhancements as one would call it.

Unfortunately, WP_Customize_Control doesn't do the job, nor can I find anything about it.

What would be the docs / resources to start building this?

If you're after getting custom CSS ontop of Wordpress's Admins Customizer buttons, inputs, and controls - you can do something like this:

add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', function(){
    $screen = get_current_screen();
    if ($screen->base == 'customize') {
            plugins_url( 'your-file.css', __FILE__ ),
            filemtime( plugin_dir_path( __FILE__ ) . '/your-file.css' )
            // get_template_directory() . '/your-file.css' )
        wp_enqueue_style( 'custom_wp_admin_css' );

The commented out lines are incase your making a theme, not a plugin.

In your-file.css, you can then do your custom CSS

#customize-controls * {
    color: red !important;
  • Thank you, do I have to use !important on each declaration? Isn't there a way to make my file of higher-order? Jan 9, 2018 at 3:13

    Actually you should just enqueue at the customize_controls_enqueue_scripts action. No need then to check for the current screen. Jan 9, 2018 at 5:49
