This is a stripped down blank theme, meant to be used as a parent theme. It includes alot of functions borrowed from the silverstreak mini framework: http://github.com/vanntastic/silverstreak. I felt that alot of the wordpress functions could be more simplified and easier to use. This theme attempts to be pragmatic and allows you to keep your code elegant. It also makes assumptions for you, so you don't have to worry about trivial things such as where your images, js, or css directories are.
- Rake (if you want to use the setup task) : http://rake.rubyforge.org/
Usage and Installation
Clone the git repo into your wordpress theme directory
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:vanntastic/silverstreak_wp.git /path/to/your/wp-site/wp-content/themes/silverstreak_wp
Cd into the root of the silverstreak_wp theme directory
rake ss:setup FOR='name_of_theme'
That should setup your child theme folder and the necessary directories, if you are on a mac and have textmate installed, then it also has the added bonus of opening up the header.php file in textmate.
