ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Lil’ Skinny is the name of my first WordPress theme that won’t break down as soon as you use it with a website that it wasn’t initially designed for. This is a proper, generic, basic WordPress theme. Although lacking features to be desired such as customizer support – it does what it does well, and quickly: Provide a basic, hyper-simple theme for any basic WordPress site.
This theme was a personal exercise for myself to keep fresh with WordPress theme creation, CSS – and also tackle some new challenges. I’ve developed two separate ground-up themes for WordPress sites (One during my time at Maestro as a front-end dev, the other one for this very site) – but during both occasions I took full advantage of the wonderful situation that is purpose-built themes. I didn’t need to worry about using the customizer, or making a feature everything-proof. This theme was a challenge to myself to do the exact opposite. I feel like it turned out pretty well, all things considered!
Brackets (My current text editor of choice)
Underscores (The best starter theme for development)
InstantWP (Fantastic for quick WordPress theme development)
DOWNLOAD THE THEME
Before you download the theme – I want to be clear that this was a very short-term personal project, meant mostly for self-improvement. Feel free to download and use this theme commercially or for personal use with that in mind. Use it as a starter theme, or use it as-is for ultimate theme laziness 🙂
