Latte: A Free One-Page WordPress Theme to Showcase Your Profile

Latte is a new parallax style WordPress portfolio theme created by Hardeep Asrani. The 19-year old developer from India already has 17 plugins and four themes to his credit on WordPress.org. We recently featured his work on the Advanced CSS Editor plugin, which allows users to write CSS in the customizer.

Latte follows suit with extensive customizer options for every section of the one-page scrolling theme. It was created for developers, designers, and freelancers who want to feature their work in a visual resume format with a profile photo, short bio, services, newsletter subscription, and more. Each of these sections are optional and can be turned on/off with a simple checkbox in the customizer.

Latte theme users can choose to highlight different skills, portfolio items, blog posts, and/or services they provide. It is geared towards individuals who want to lead with their profile and keep all their relevant information on the home page.

In many one-page scrolling themes, blog posts become somewhat of an afterthought that don’t receive the same design attention. Latte, on the other hand, includes a simple, tasteful single post design that is harmonious with the rest of the site. A blog header image can be set in the customizer to be unique or match the rest of the site.

If you’re not a fan of the preloader or the scrolling parallax animations, you can disable them in the customizer. The theme supports a slide-out navigation menu, which can also be disabled if you plan to keep all the content on the homepage without posting any blogs.

Asrani built 100+ color control options into the theme and prides himself on its customizability. Latte’s homepage states that if you find something in the theme which is not customizable, then he will work on adding it to the theme.

The services, skills, and subscribe sections are widgetized areas where the content is generated by special widgets that are included in the theme. Documentation for setting up the various sections is included in the theme’s zip file. If you want to add pricing tables, a contact form, portfolio section, or a map, you’ll need to purchase the pro version. To Asrani’s credit, the free version is not cluttered by pro version “teaser” controls in the customizer.

Check out the live demo to see each of the available sections in action on the page.

Latte offers a welcome alternative to clunky, confusing page builders or drag-and-drop editors. With everything in the customizer, the user doesn’t have to hunt around for how to edit its many sections. If you want a simple one-page theme to showcase your profile and services, you’d be hard pressed to find one more customizable than Latte. Download it for free from WordPress.org or via your admin themes browser.

A Day of REST, the first conference dedicated to the WordPress REST API, was held in London at the end of January 2016, hosted by the events team at Human Made. Attendees offered overwhelmingly positive feedback after the conference finished, with 81% of the 221 participants saying they would attend again.

The event’s organizers announced today that the next WP REST API conference will be held in the UK in late 2016. A Week of REST is being organized as a four-day residential developer bootcamp. As such, the £1,500 (~$2157 USD) ticket price is for an immersive experience that includes all meals, accommodation, and training.

After the first conference, attendees indicated that they would be interested in a longer event that offered more advanced training. Although specific sessions have not yet been announced, organizers are focusing the bootcamp around three main learning objectives: how to leverage the WordPress REST API, creating your own API with custom endpoints, and displaying WordPress data in a frontend JavaScript application.

Developers can sign up at aweekofrest.hm to indicate interest in the event and subscribe to updates from the organization team. Location and exact dates will be announced soon.
