Last week I released Qwerty, a minimal, responsive, longform writing theme for WordPress. Currently it’s available to download on GitHub, but it’s in the queue for WordPress.org as well.
I wanted to build the fastest, lightest weight theme I could. It’s about displaying your content without the bloat, making your site load much faster than a typical WordPress theme.
Qwerty scores an 88 out of 100 with only 8 requests on a Pingdom speed test. Pretty awesome for a WordPress theme.
Obvious Post States
In addition to the new theme, I took the design changes I made to the post states in Slate and made a standalone plugin called Obvious Post States. Super basic, it just makes post states stand out a lot more than they do by default.
New WordPress Directory at Seven Bold
I’ll be adding more free themes and plugins, and hopefully at some point move into some premium options as well.
