Jquery.transit library enabled for themes and modules
One of the things I have been working on is to implement CSS transitions and transforms into our themes. So far trollfell theme was using jquery animate to open and close the sidebar and I wanted it to use transitions instead. To be able to fully explore this a jquery library proved very useful. I chose jquery.transit because it seems powerful, well documented and it's easy to grab and run with, which is what I needed. I tested it out by using it in the trollfell theme. I will be exploring it further in this and other themes in the near future.
template.html files renamed to match theme names
I renamed template.html theme files to match the theme names, but because of how BlockPress was written they wouldn't load properly. I had a look at init.js file getThemeHTML function and changed the URL path to the file. Now themes load with no trouble. This is a small adjustment but it makes the file structure consistent, logical and easier to work with, which I consider important. It is especially useful when working with and comparing templates from different themes. A clear naming strategy removes the likelihood of mistakenly editing the wrong file and improves overall workflow.
