We are a group of volunteers who review and approve themes submitted to be included in the official WordPress Theme directory.
We do license, security, and code quality reviews.
We help build and maintain default themes.
The primary focus of the team is to help theme authors transition to blockBlockBlock is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience.-based themes.
Visual Studio Code and WebStorm are two popular editors that support JSON Schema out of the box, and many other editors can have support added via plugins. Check the documentation for your favorite editor to see how to enable JSON schemas there. SchemaStore.org and JSON Schema have lists of supported editors if you want to try it out and your current editor doesn’t have support.
For Visual Studio Code, all you need to do is add "$schema": "https://schemas.wp.org/trunk/theme.json" to the beginning of your theme.json file.
Properties that are not a part of the schema will show up with undercurls to help catch typos and improperly nested properties.
Tooltips describe properties and include the version of WordPress that they were introduced.
Autocomplete can make editing theme.json faster and lead to fewer errors.
Older versions of the schema can be accessed by replacing trunk with the version of GutenbergGutenbergThe Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ that you’d like to use the schema for. For example https://schemas.wp.org/wp/5.8/theme.json for the version of Gutenberg used in WordPress 5.8.
The source for the theme.json schema can be found on GitHubGitHubGitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ at WordPress/gutenberg. Issues an pull requests to the contents of the schema can be made there.
Additionally, the schemas have been added to the SchemaStore catalog which is used by some editors to discover schemas. SchemaStore is not a part of WordPress.orgWordPress.orgThe community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/, but issues and pull requests to update the catalog are welcome on GitHub at SchemaStore/schemastore.
