Starterkit theme in Drupal 10

Drupal 10 is the latest version of the open-source content management system Drupal. With the release of Drupal 10, developers and site builders have access to a range of new features and improvements, including the Starterkit theme.

The Starterkit theme is a base theme that provides a foundation for building custom themes in Drupal 10. It is designed to be used as a starting point for theme development, allowing developers to quickly create custom themes without having to start from scratch.

The Starterkit theme is built using modern front-end technologies, including HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It includes a range of features that make it easier for developers to create responsive and accessible themes. Some of these features include:

A responsive grid system: The Starterkit theme includes a responsive grid system that makes it easy to create layouts that adapt to different screen sizes. This makes it possible to create themes that look great on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices.

Accessibility features: The Starterkit theme includes accessibility features that help ensure that the themes created with it are usable by people with disabilities. This includes support for keyboard navigation, alternative text for images, and semantic HTML.

Extensibility: The Starterkit theme is designed to be highly extensible, allowing developers to add custom styles and functionality without having to modify the theme's core code. This makes it easy to create custom themes that are tailored to the specific needs of a site.

Browser compatibility: The Starterkit theme is designed to be compatible with a range of modern browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Edge. This makes it easy to create themes that work well on a variety of platforms.
