Braces

Braces is a starter theme that is meant for getting development teams up and running on WordPress projects quickly. Braces is derived from Automattic _s project. _s which is truly fantastic. As you'll likely notice, much of the core beliefs behind _s will be reflected in this project as well.

However, we did make some changes to suit our business needs, which we hope you'll find helpful as well. Some of the new features you can find are Sass integration, file and structure clean up, and most noticeably, the PHP syntax. Typically any new additions should have README.md docs for their explanations.

Pull requests are welcome!

Why Braces?

Braces alters the typical WP PHP loop syntax for a more PHP coding standards friendly approach that uses more, well, "braces".
