Here's another one! This uses the Gutenberg Starter Theme as a base, and fills in the default Gutenberg demo post as homepage starter content. Most of the theme files were stripped out, leaving a the code relatively barebones.

Basic steps for testing

  1. Create a fresh WordPress site
  2. Clone this repository or upload a zip into the site’s themes directory
  3. Install the Gutenberg plugin
  4. Enable the Full Site Editing experiment in the Gutenberg > Experiments panel.
  5. Activate the "Gutenberg Starter Theme Blocks" theme from within Appearance > Themes.
  6. Visit the Customizer and hit "Publish"

Your frontend should render things generally the same way Gutenberg looks with no editor styles.

I pushed a few more updates to this today. I think it's probably far enough along to be merged in alongside the other theme in the repo. Would someone mind giving this a test + review?

Should we update the screenshot in this PR given our recent discussions about starter content and streamlining the examples of block-based themes? With no starter content, the home page by default will look like this, correct?

Yep, that's right. I think it's fine to leave the screenshot as it is above for now, since there's history in the thread.

Thanks for testing!
