this is the starter theme I’ve built for frontity:
- Demo: https://frontity-starter-theme.alexadark.vercel.app/
- Github: https://github.com/alexadark/frontity-starter-theme
- npm: https://www.npmjs.com/package/frontity-starter-theme
It’s styled with theme-ui (https://theme-ui.com/), which is super flexible, and brings dark mode!
and for interactive elements like the slide menu I used grommet (https://v2.grommet.io/) which is built on the styled system like theme-ui, so you can have a central theme to rules your styles!
The goal of this work was first to learn frontity building something real, and also build a tool for myself and the community, simple enough to let creativity open, allowing to build something totally different on top of it, but with well organized files and all the basic functionalities (I have not build a search, but I will as soon as I have time), as well as nice enough to be used directly, and pleasant to begin a new project.
So I hope you will like it!
I have worked a lot with gatsby before discovering frontity (I’m about to launch the firsts premium gatsby wp themes: https://gatsbywpthemes.com/ , and I also plan to port theses theme to frontity!) so I can say that both frameworks have their utility, what I have loved in frontity is the fact that you can publish in wordpress and see it published immediately in frontity, and I love the centralized state! Impatient to build real clients frontity websites!
Feedback and PR are welcome!
I plan also to grab a video to show how I build it!
