Roughly a year ago I announcedsciolism 2019. Yesterday I finally shipped the initial release of the theme. It look quite a long time to do the final tweaks and make a decision on when to ship the theme — maybe I should write about this process later because it was a very interesting journey.
sciolism 2019 is a light-weighted and minimalistic theme for the static site generator Hugo. The theme was designed for blogs. In fact this is the very theme that you are looking at right now. Further information is available in the theme’s Readme file. The theme is currently available via GitHub but I submitted the theme to the official Hugo Theme gallery, too. Let’s see when it will arrive there.
As recently promised I just pushed an update for the e.nigma 2015 theme. The release notes are rather short but contain two important improvements:
* Enhanced experience on mobile devices (theme is "mobile friendly" now)
* Improved compatibility with recent WordPress versions
Since the theme was not updated for roughly four years a couple of minor adjustment were necessary to guarantee compatibility with recent WordPress versions. However, more attention should be given to the improvements with respect to the mobile experience. I made several adjustments to improve the mobile experience of the theme. More ❤️ for 📱.
A while ago I was asked what the theme is running on this WordPress instance. I answered that I made this theme a while ago to be used on this blog. My conversational partner continued: „Is this theme available for public?“. There it was, that awkward moment when somebody asks you for a piece of code but you think it is not good enough to be published. „Well… Not yet. But I think I should offer it to everybody“, I replied.
So I started rewriting and optimizing most of the code to finally reach a level that I think is worth to be published. I named the theme e.nigma 2015 to refer to its original purpose to serve as the layout I’m using for my blog. You can find more details on e.nigma 2015 in my Portfolio section. The theme is listed in the official WordPress.org repository and can also be grabbed on GitHub.
