  • Super stoked that people are taking the time to post issues and pull requests with new features/themes/etc. As I’m currently finishing up my dissertation I will most likely be slow to respond to any/all issues/PRs raised between now and December. By all means, keep ‘em coming and I’ll get back to providing regular support around the holidays. Regards -kyle
