####Code License I always respect my first WordPress theme teacher Ian Stewart for his excellent brief on my first theme. I then tried many and learn more with the help of WordPress developers at WordPress Development community. But with their assistance and guidance, the theme was completely developed by nanodesigns

Third party libraries are used:

  • Bootstrap 3.3.4
  • _s Starter Theme
  • wp_bootstrap_navwalker class by Edward McIntyre
  • Modernizr
  • Masonry
  • Codestar Framework by Codestar

####Design License The layout design was totally made by nanodesigns. The license for the design is as same as the theme itself.

####Font License The nano progga theme used Siyam Rupali for Bengali. The font is embeded with the theme so it won't load from any third party sources.

nano progga icon font is generated combining various fonts using online app: Fontastic.me.

All the credits goes to the God - ALLAH, the most benevolent, the most forgiving. Thanks to Ian Stewart, my theme guru. And obviously my thanks goes to the developers and mentors at WordPress Development Community. Thanks to my wife Hafsa for her support even I's busy with this theme development for so long. :)
