Sparrow: A Light & Quick WordPress Theme

Hi there and thank you for having a look at Sparrow!

Sparrow is a brand new WordPress theme from Bonfire Themes. Aimed primarily for personal use, it takes a no-nonsense approach, allowing you to get straight to blogging; simply install and you’re ready to publish. No need spend an unreasonable amount of time on configuration just get your content to show up. That said, Sparrow does come with settings that allow you to customize some key things. However, we’ve avoided bloating the theme and have instead focused on making Sparrow a tight package with unique elements, smooth animations (even on mobile devices!) and are making use of WordPress’ own built-in tools to keep everything as lightweight as possible. But we’ll stop here and let Sparrow itself do the rest of the talking. We’ll leave this handy list of features below, but please do browse around this demo site to get a first-hand look at what’s on offer. Features:
