Deep dive on how to create Power BI themes with a JSON file

You can customize the look and feel of the Power BI reports using the formatting pane for each specific visual or you can speed up the process by using a JSON file.
This feature (the JSON file) has been available for quite a while but on the September 2017 update of Power BI Desktop, they allow us to define even more elements and that is great, but the documentation is poor (sorry Microsoft, it is) and unfortunately, a lot of the elements wont work even when you add them correctly to the file.
