    I can’t see this theme being used for an enterprise site or a business site or an institution. I feel that these block-based themes are good for blogging or for showcase only, but they don’t perform well in the real world.

    It’s like those awesome Codepen designs that would never work due to cross-browser compatibility or those Dribbble designs which would never work due to UX issues.

    Still, it’s a theme to learn from.

    I use the term “skin” because it harkens to various systems in days gone by where designers simply added CSS to skin a site. WordPress themes will always be a bit more complex than a simple stylesheet but not much more so. We will be getting back to the basics of CSS and HTML.

    This is a very refreshing prospect. :)

    It’s too bad that the preview on WordPress.org doesn’t do it justice. Improving previews could help the goal of powering 50% of the web.

    Nice clean design. I quite like the simplicity of it. I do think Seedlet is for business as well. A complex business doesn’t mean a you need to have a complex website, just a solid information architecture and blocks will do the rest.

    It’s great to see Automattic’s theme on wordpress.org. They are doing a lot of work for block-based themes and with this theme, developers can learn a lot from.

    Do block patterns remain when switching themes?

      Yes, patterns in use will remain in post/page content after switching themes. However, they will not remain for selection. Patterns are merely a specific grouping of blocks that already exist on your site. Theme authors can arrange blocks into certain patterns and present them to the user as an option to quickly insert into the editor.

      The one caveat with this is that themes can style these patterns of blocks a certain way. It’s very possible they won’t look the same when switching themes. However, your content will remain intact.
