What are PoliMorfic and PoliMorf?

PoliMorfic is the site built around the AWS compatible WordPress-based Theme, PoliMorf. It is also what this site uses and there are various examples of how you can set up pages and posts if you refer to the top menu.

PoliMorf is a theme designed with the idea of having no special templates beyond the standard WordPress ones. Instead, you construct posts and pages using a schematic language. The language allows you to easily set up how a page looks as well as import stylesheets, set font references and assign remotely-located background images, amongst many things. The functionality is expandable so you can create your own shortcut functions, much like using shortcodes but with more scope.

Why use PoliMorf?

Would you rather be constrained to fill in lots of options in the Administration area of WordPress and be stuck with "just" the WordPress content manager? Or would you prefer to design your pages from the ground up with dynamic elements and be able to control everything on these pages?

To go even further: How about storing all this data remotely on the Cloud and using your WordPress database as a router of sorts, where you link together many small files that output on the same page? You probably already use plugins and third-party software on your site, or are familiar with them. PoliMorf allows you to create complicated pages but link them simply using easy-to-understand commands. It allows you to decentralise your information balancing AWS S3 with a skeleton database on WordPress.

If this sounds interesting, take some time to read about the theme.
