Use it as a base...
Davis was built to be a small as possible, while still adhering to all of the requirements of the WordPress theme directory. That makes it the perfect base for beginners looking to learn theme development.
Or as it is
Fortunately, lightweight and useful aren't mutually exclusive adjectives. If you're looking for a clean, simple blog theme that doesn't overpower your content, you could do worse than Davis.
Light on the load
It doesn't hurt that Davis is very, very lightweight. Excluding the theme screenshot, Davis weighs in at only 61 kilobytes. Your website will load in no time at all.
Easy on the eyes
Despite its small footprint, Davis features well-considered typography that makes content a pleasure to read, whether on a desktop or on a smartphone.
You want it darker?
The Dark Mode allows you to change Davis from dark text on a white background to white text on a dark background with a single click in the WordPress Customizer.
Davis has full support for the blocks added with the new Gutenberg post editor.
