Added closing div

I suggested, that a closing div should have a comment. David A. Kennedy did the job. Here’s the code and change.

Here’s the updated code on Github.

But: how do you contribute with code as opposed to suggestions?

Gulp Proposal Debate

I’d like to propose a gulp based build process for this theme (Ahamadwais in this thread)

Ahamadwais proposed a Gulp based build process. The answer from the developer team was “keep it simple”. However they admitted that they use Grunt for the initial code.

– “I think the takeaway is that solutions should not be looking for problems.” (Helen Hou-Sandi)

IMHO it is better to keep the code simple.

Twentyseventeen icon theme

A developer from Automattic asks the community for icon themes:

Right now I’m using Genericons with one custom icon, but it might be nice to have something stylistically different this year. We have a lot of flexibility here. Only requirement is that the icon set uses a GPL-compatible open source license. (Melchoyce visited 14.9. 2017)

The look and feel of the theme will change as suggestions tick in.

One of them is this: feather.

Twentyseventeen

The work on twentyseventeen begins these days. The files are shared on github. And a team of designers are working together. Here are notes from the first meeting:

The standard themes on WP are called twenty-(someting). So far Helen Hou-Sandi tells, that Twentyseventeen will be a responsive onepager.

  • Here is a gallery with features and idea.

The team call out for WP developers:

How can you get involved?

There will be weekly meetings every Friday at 18:00 UTC in #core-themes starting today. During that time, the focus will be on the theme itself. If you are interested in contributing, keep an eye out here for updates or join us in #core-themes in Slack.

If you have some early thoughts on what would make this a great WordPress experience, or if you’re generally interested in participating, sound off in the comments. Please hold any design feedback for Friday’s meeting. where we can have a conversation about it in greater depth.

Here is a mockup from Helen Hou-Sandi’s post showing several devices.

The theme is designed by Mel Choyce.

Boston-based UI/UX designer, WordPress core contributor, craft beer fan, and unrepentant sci-fi/fantasy geek. I’m a Design Engineer at @automattic.

Helen and Mel work at Automattic. So the themes grow i a forest that’s more or less planted by Matt Mullenweg’s company.

The early stage is shared on Github. As soon as the code is considered stable it will become part of the WP core. Here’s the Theme Review Team guidelines.

Issues on Github

If you want to know the developers thoughts and visions go to “Issues“. A good example is the debate on .SVG in place of icon fonts. Follow this thread.

By now there are only 31 issues.
