    WordCamp Krakow 2015Speaker: Aleksandra Łączek

    January 21, 2016 — Pomimo ogromnej ilości darmowych i płatnych motywów, nic nie daje większej swobody, niż stworzenie własnej skórki. Chcesz zbudować motyw – dla siebie, dla klienta, a może darmowy motyw do oficjalnego repozytorium? Od czego zaczynasz? Do tematu można podejść na wiele sposobów – wykorzystać motyw domyślny albo jeden z dostępnych frameworków, lub… sięgnąć po motyw startowy.
    W swojej prezentacji Aleksandra skupi się na motywie startowym _s (Underscores), omówi jego budowę i pokaże jak wykorzystać go jako bazę własnej skórki, która będzie kompatybilna z najnowszą wersją WordPress i standardami HTML5, responsywna, gotowa do tłumaczenia i dostępna.

I go through some of the benefits and cool tricks you can implement with this structure including breakpoint includes, variables, functions, nesting, and mixins.
