+1, also like how clean this theme is. Worships whitespace too.
I created a minimalist css microframework a few months back : https://concrete.style
I released a minimal CSS "framework" not too long ago based on that concept as well (although not Jekyll based) - https://bradleytaunt.com/typesafe-css/
I might include typesafe-css into it as well, if I ever get to it
When do you estimate that will happen and why do you think it will?
Gatsbyjs uses react templates.
On https://www.polibyte.com/ I'm happily using https://github.com/johno/pixyll which has a similar aesthetic.
What's the thinking behind the Bitter font? I thought it was monospaced for a minute, which would've been cool.
May I recommend spacing out the lines? The usual rule of thumb is 1.5x spacing vs. line height.
More examples with photos and figures in various sizes would help users who are picking out the theme.
I also went for something minimal for my blog. Here's a comparable page: https://shan.io/writing/
The only downside I think is that people are sometimes distracted because they're not quite used to and surprised by something that is so ... readable!
A tiny remark - because post dates in the listing on the home page have different lengths (Mar is longer than Apr), titles to their right aren't correctly aligned.

Note that people's definitions of what constitutes a minimalist/no-nonsense theme seem to differ, with some emphasizing appearance, others dependencies and elegance of the generated code.
