Barebones was created to enable rapid development without the need for additional bloat. Start building without having to strip back default styles.
An intuitive grid allows rapid development of designs that work across devices. Easily tweak your desired device breakpoints for a fully responsive experience.
Barebones compiles while you work and even compresses your theme images. Ready for production? Minify everything with a single command.
Install the latest version of WordPress and Barebones with the automated installer.
git clone https://github.com/benchmarkstudios/barebones-automated-installer.git chmod +x barebones-automated-installer/barebones mv barebones-automated-installer/barebones /usr/local/bin rm -rf barebones-automated-installer
Run the following command from your Sites folder, where the project_name will be used to name your site folder and theme.
Enter your admin password when asked (in order to install node modules), and you’re done.
Clone the Barebones repository into your WordPress /wp-content/themes/ directory:
