Recently someone reached out to ask if they could use my theme that I use on deliciousreverie.co.uk on their site. So I’ve decided to release this theme to the public, albeit with a few changes.
When you’re a committed family man, coding outside work is something that of necessity, has to be done in a hurry. Yet it’s often the work I most look forward to.
I coded this theme in an awful hurry, but it’s served my site well over the past year or more that I’ve been using it. I started off by examining how the Bootstrap 3 theme output and re-used some of its layout partials when building this theme, in order to save myself some time.
Oh yes, and a Favicon.
Using deliciousreverie theme
Here’s the code repo. I used Grunt taskrunner, which is what I used for ages before picking up Gulp and Webpack. I still enjoy using it.
So you can just run
npm install and then
grunt and you’ll have regenerated the CSS and JS. Although if you just want to use the theme, you don’t even need to do that.
What’s Been Left Out
Two things haven’t made it into this theme that are present on my website:
Skybird typeface. Philip Trautmann kindly let me use this unique typeface that I feel reflects my personality very well. Before that I used Vollkorn from Google Fonts, so I replaced that font to avoid licencing issues. Although I really recommend you check out Philip’s work.
Hope you like it :-D
That’s all I have to say really, except feel free to clone, download, modify, and use this code. I hope you enjoy doing so!
