Minimum Viable WordPress Theme

As previously mentioned, this site is now proudly powered by WordPress, instead of my own custom CMS. I’ve dumped all my previous content, bad form I know, but a necessary evil as I’m starting from scratch with WordPress. I’m developing my own theme, which has just reached a stage where I can happily consider it a minimum viable product.

What does that mean?

A minimum viable product has just those core features that allow the product to be deployed, and no more.

For a WordPress theme, I guess it means that the theme can at the very least display these words and optionally, allow any visitors to submit comments and have their words displayed too. Simples.

For anyone who might be interested, the theme is hosted on GitHub and you can follow its development. I’m intending on writing more about its development as it, erm, develops.
