Hello! I'm in the process of moving the information pages over from andreamignolo.com to github where I can keep things lovely and updated. Right now this is just a dump of what I had written before.

Oulipo was originally designed for my blog over at Protocol 7. After a recent redesign I thought I’d tweak Oulipo for a public release and get it set-up with all the goodies offered in WordPress 2.7. It doesn’t do anything fancy, but its simplicity and minimalism does a great job of showcasing content without getting in the way.


  1. Custom menu support
  2. Custom background and headers
  3. Post thumbnails
  4. A widget-enabled sidebar
  5. Front page styling for sticky posts
  6. Threaded comments for WordPress 2.7+
