resources/themes and copy the
pterodactyl folder to another folder named after your theme.
Repeat this step for
public/themes, copying the
pterodactyl folder to your theme name.

lang- Translation files for your theme, At the time of writing you can't change the language.
themes/theme- Templates for each of the pages
