Getting Started

Please note: This is a Starter Theme meant for hacking and should not be used as a Parent Theme. No autoupdates will be available for the code base.
Full Site Editing is a new editing experience that makes the whole site customizable via blocks and therefor significantly changes the development process of WordPress Themes.

  1. Full Site Editing is still experimental so you need to install and activate the Gutenberg plugin first!
  2. Download the Starter Theme and unzip it in the /wp-content/themes directory of your WordPress instance
  3. Make sure that npm is installed on your system
  4. Open the Project folder in your Terminal/Shell and run the following command to install all required packages:
  5. $ npm install
  6. Run the watch script and start developing by editing the frontend SASS/JS assets. You can also modify theme.json to change the global FSE settings for the block editor including the CSS variables. The following Web service may help you to create a custom configuration: https://gutenberg-theme.xyz
  7. $ npm run watch
  8. Open a page and edit the template in the Block Editor or launch the Site Editor to setup the existing templates
  9. The site logo and the navigations needs to be setup in the template parts
  10. (Optional: Read and understand the following guide https://developer.wordpress.org/block-editor/how-to-guides/block-based-theme) Afterwards go to https://them.es/setup to see how to setup and use the Theme on your instance
