To install, run nikola theme -i libretto

Sophisticated, simple, and classically styled, Libretto is designed to showcase your writing prowess! A unique feature of this theme is that it does NOT rely on any Javascript. It's built using HTML, CSS and a few fonts. Best of all, the theme is responsive - yes, it works on mobiles and tablets too!!

Theme Highlights

  • Classic looks!
  • Navigation links on top-right (for tablet/desktop)
  • Blog description at bottom
  • Support for custom copyright notices at bottom-left
  • Icon links to social sites at bottom-right
  • Mobile support! (Looks good on my android phone, at least!)
  • Tag support!
  • No Javascript! (for now..?)

This is my first effort at making a theme and I hope you will enjoy using it!
