Working copy of Happy theme on Github

So, I promised to be transparent. So I’ve uploaded version pre-pre-pre-alpha of the Happy theme to Github :) This theme is rough right now. I’ve been making changes to my former base theme. Taking things out, Enabling other things.

No templates for the general body are doing much. footer.php, header.php, home.php, and of course functions.php are where the meat of the structure exists currently.

I have bazillion planned changes, so don’t take this what the theme will be. I haven’t even uploaded this theme to a non-local URL yet. But you can at least browse it on Github. I’ll have that up asap on this url. PROMISE.

Like the name? I’m kind of addicted to it. PS the theme currently on that url is a Twitter Bootstrap theme I built, before deciding I wanted to do this instead of adopting all that comes with Bootstrap. But if you read this late enough, you won’t see that anymore, and will only see this theme. That’s confusing.

By the way, I’m writing this from the sky as I fly to San Francisco. Awesome. Computer dying. Bye.

 

edit: thanks for Tom McFarlin writing about my project, and linking here : )

I’ve actually updated the theme a lot since then, so check it out on Github. And sorry for the confusion in this post! Just check it out live on Happy Loops and let me know what you think. Patches welcome, and updates via blog and github will keep coming!

    No problemo and understood. I’ll be around regardless.

    If you have any plans on marketing this theme, free or paid, feel free to connect with me if you would like my thoughts on a launch plan for generating a subscriber or sales flow.

    I think we might have met once at WC Miami? If not, ask Ryan or Themergency about me and my intentions in regard to WP ;)

    Take care,

    Adam
