Introducing Carrington

Carrington is an attempt to better abstract WordPress theme organization, and simplify commonly needed theme functionality.

At the moment, Carrington is basically three things – in this order:

A developer friendly theme and conventions-based templating system.
A set of best practices for theme organization.
An elegant, semantically rich WordPress theme for end-users with advanced features (like SEO-friendly AJAX loading of comments and archives and drop down navigation menus).

This is a work in progress, but functional enough at least to render the the graphic text on this site.”
