WP.tv: Demystifying theme.json

These days I’m following tutorials about block theme development. In these articles I’ll collect the best of them.

In the excellent WordPress.tv series Nick Diego has this workshop about theme.json. Topics covered are:

  • How to add fonts
  • Color palette – and how to use the variables
  • Style variations
  • How to use the Child Theme plugin

If theme.json seems baflfing to you Nick’s video is a very good walthrough.

One of the participants asked about child themes. Nick answered that the child theme is still possible. It’s useful for theme variations. The only file you need to edit in the child theme could be theme.json.

The idea seems good, since you would get the benefit from theme updates. If you create a simple copy of a theme, you will not get such updates.
