Features

Requirements

Install

  1. In your admin panel, go to Appearance > Themes and click the Add New button.
  2. Click Upload Theme and Choose File, then select the theme's .zip file. Click Install Now.
  3. Click Activate to use your new theme right away.

Dark Mode

Dark mode is not enabled by default. To enable this feature go to Appearance > Customize > Dark Mode.

Light

This will display the theme in light mode for everyone.

Dark (auto)

This will automatically adjust the appearance based on the users OS appearance/color preference.

Editing Geist

The recommended way to edit the theme is to create a child theme.

This will ensure that none of your changes will be lost when you update the theme.

Development

The CSS and JS files are compiled and minified using Gulp. You'll need Node, Yarn and Gulp installed globally.

From the theme's root directory run:

$ yarn install
$ yarn dev

Now you can edit files in /css/ and /js/, which will be compiled to /built/ automatically.

The zip Gulp task packages the theme files into dist/geist.zip, which you can then upload to your WordPress site.

$ yarn zip

SVG Icons

Geist uses inline SVG icons, included. You can find all icons inside /template-parts/icons.

To use an icon just use the get_template_part() function:

<?php get_template_part('template-parts/icons/website'); ?>
