Theme: BootStrapFast

I’m trying to learn the proper way of developing a theme from the WordPress.org standards point of view so I used Underscores Starter theme by Automattic to get started.

I’m building this theme to be fast and be lightweight so it will have minimalistic components, it is utilizing Bootstrap Responsive grid by Twitter.
