In August 2020, we started our journey to build Rishi Theme with 4 major objectives:

  • To be the fastest and the Core Web Vitals web optimized theme 
  • To provide great user experience 
  • To have tons of customisation features and still be lightweight  
  • Offer several starter templates 

Over the course of time, Rishi Theme went through several major changes such as redoing the entire theme to move from PHP to React and revamping the customizer experience.

In this journey, we took inspiration from several themes and used many tools. So we want to acknowledge and provide credits to them.

We took inspiration from Astra, Kadence, Blocksy and GeneratePress themes, especially Blocksy and GeneratePress. Blocksy’s customizer user experience is intuitive and Rishi’s Customizer is inspired from it. GeneratePress performance optimization technique helped us to further improve Rishi Theme speed. We have also used some of the above mentioned themes code components and given them our own touch.

All these themes are under GNU General Public License (GPL) which provides anybody the rights and freedom to study how they work and modify them. 

We are grateful to these themes for inspiration and we hope someday Rishi Theme will inspire other theme developers too.

We also want to thank various websites for providing photos and vector icons for Rishi Theme.

We have used images from the below stock websites for the Rishi Theme demo.
