New WordPress theme (2018 edition)

This week I replaced the previous wordpress theme on this blog with the current one.

I use Bootstrap to place widgets in my blog content, and Prism.js to do syntax highlighting on code snippets.

This is a heavily modified version of the default twentyseventeen theme, which I used as a base because of it’s good typesetting. The bootstrap-based layout is a big improvement for mobile users, who now makes up the majority of web traffic:

Since the last major revision of my site setup, I’ve been including more technical content, which would be easier to read with syntax highlighting and tabs.

The most visible part of the transition is now complete:

The old theme was Skittlish, but I decided to move to a new theme which was based on Bootstrap, so that I could use its components. The new theme is a modified version of the default twentyfourteen theme, using the visual style of morphic, with Prism.js added for code highlighting.
