Ian Stewart from the Automattic theme team posted about the release of the _s (pronounced “underscores”) theme. It is a new starter, blank template to build custom themes upon. It is meant as a replacement for Toolbox, which has so many people using it as a parent theme that it cannot be safely changed any longer.
Stewart dubs this theme as a “1000-hour head start” suggesting that’s the amount of time you will save if you start your project from this code.
I look forward to playing around with _s. You can download it here.
– Peace and long life
