Gatsby Theme Jam Submission Example

This repo is an example and potential starting point for theme creators.

It includes:

  • a bare-bones theme (located in theme/) that includes basic setup
  • a demo site (located in demo/) that installs the theme
  • a Yarn workspaces configuration so the theme and demo can be worked on simultaneously
