LearnPears: An open source collection of common markup & style

Lo and behold, Mr. Dan Cederholm has done it again! This time the folks over at SimpleBits unveiled their latest project, Pears, an open source WordPress theme that enables you to get your own pattern library up and running quickly.


This is super helpful to collect, test and experiment with your collection of semantic HTML & CSS patterns. For beginners it can be a great way to begin to understand the relationship between markup and style. No matter which audience you fall into, it is a handy tool for improving speed and productivity.

Also make sure to take notice of the Pears website itself, which is beautifully designed and responsive.

Thanks Dan, for making our lives more enjoyable with Dribbble and easier with Pears. šŸ™‚
