Infinitum Theme

Version 0.9


Adam Powell ( @AdamInfinitum /

Built upon Matt Bank's WordPress Starter Theme as detailed below customizations including Gumby Framework Version 2.5.15

WordPress Starter Theme

Version: 3.4.5


Matt Banks ( @mattbanks / / )


WordPress Starter Theme for use as a starting template for building custom themes. Uses Compass/SCSS, HTML5 Boilerplate 4 with Modernizr and Normalize.css, and Grunt for all tasks. Tested with WordPress 3.6 RC2.


The theme is setup to use Grunt to compile Compass/SCSS, lint, concatenate and minify JavaScript (with source maps), optimize images, and LiveReload the browser (with extension), with flexibility to add any additional tasks via the Gruntfile. Alternatively, you can use CodeKit or whatever else you prefer to compile the SCSS and manage the JavaScript.

Rename folder to your theme name, change the assets/scss/style.scss intro block to your theme information. Open the theme directory in terminal and run npm install to pull in all Grunt dependencies. Run grunt to execute tasks. Code as you will. If you have the LiveReload browser extension, it will reload after any SCSS or JS changes. To optimize images, run grunt imagemin.

  • Compile assets/scss/style.scss to style.css (all paths defined in config.rb for Compass)
  • Compile assets/scss/editor-style.scss to editor-style.css
  • Concatenate and minify plugins in assets/js/vender and assets/js/source/plugins.js to assets/js/plugins.min.js
  • Minify assets/js/source/main.js to assets/js/main.min.js
  • ??
  • Profit

To concatenate and minify your jQuery plugins, add them to the assets/js/vendor directory and add the js filename and path to the Gruntfile uglify task. Previous versions of the starter theme automatically pulled all plugins in the vendor directory, but this has changed to allow more granular control and for managing plugins and assets with bower.


Supports bower to install and manage JavaScript dependencies in the assets/js/vendor folder.


The theme includes deployments via grunt-rsync. The Gruntfile includes setups for staging and production - edit your paths and host, then run grunt rsync:staging or grunt rsync:production to deploy your files via rsync.


  1. Normalized stylesheet for cross-browser compatibility using Normalize.css version 2 (IE8+ only)
  2. Easy to customize
  3. Flexible grid from Chris Coyier
  4. Media Queries for mobile and tablets ready to populate
  5. Removed comments from pages
  6. Compass & SCSS with plenty of mixins ready to go
  7. Much much more
