Theme Twenty Nineteen | WordPress 5.0

The long waited WordPress theme Twenty Nineteen is going to be led by Boston based designer Allan Cole and Kjell Reigstad will be the design coach. 
On WordPress 5.0, the default theme will be Twenty Nineteen along with the full support of awesome Gutenberg editor. 

There are some significant features of the Twenty Nineteen theme.

It will also contain Front-end and Back-end editor styles. This will allow the presentation of content in the back-end to closely resemble how the finished product will look like. 

Twenty Nineteen is based on two themes: _s  and  Gutenberg starter theme

Twenty Nineteen’s core is simple, sophisticated typography. The aesthetic theme is minimal and non-prescriptive, enabling the theme to work well in various applications.

It will include both front end and back end styles, so users can be completely confident when they publish their website.

The Twenty Nineteen theme will have no sidebar at all. So, you will get more space for your posts and pages.
