How am I ?

Hello developers ! I’m a WordPress starter theme, I’m not all naked and actualy the webpage you are in is me ! I’m very minimal & easy to understand, I use modern workflow like gulp, sass, and love. I’m not meant for being used as a parent theme, just adopt me and hack me ! feel good here ? Give me a try !

Why a starter theme ?

Sometimes you’re simply using pre-made theme for your customers, but it rarely fit their needs perfectly so you wanna wants to make your own.
