Emi Starter Theme

This is a clean WordPress starter theme cobbled together from a variety of resources over multiple years. Emi is intended to be used as a starting point for other WordPress themes, it is not meant to be a stand-alone theme in itself.

If you want to get even more automated, there's also a Yeoman generator that configures Emi for you:

Set Up

I use String Replacer (a Mac app) to find and replace the following strings, keeping the same general format as shown:

themeName > Theme Name

themeHandle > Theme_Name

themeFunction > theme_name

themeTextDomain > theme-name

There are additional variables in scss/styles.scss you'll want to update one at a time, and a few in footer.php as well.


This theme uses Gulp to automate the following tasks:

  • Sass preprocessing
  • Auto browser prefixing (via Autoprefixer)
  • Minifying CSS

It also watches changes to files for use with LiveReload


1.2 Updated variables
1.1 General cleanup and tidying
