Follet

Named after Ken Follet, author of The Pillars of the Earth, a wonderful novel about building amazing things, Follet is a fully responsive, customizable, translation-ready and extendable theme for WordPress. SEO friendly via HTML5 standards and schema.org microdata, compatible with all post formats, and customizable via WordPress Customizer. It also features primary and secondary optional colors, intelligent widget areas, which won't show when no widgets are attached to them, and a lot of easy-to-use options under the hood to activate and extend. Clean and lean PHP, HTML, CSS and JS code, written by WordPress Coding Standards. Works impressively well right out of the box, and can be used either as a main theme, a parent theme for your own child theme, or as a starter theme to create your own version.
