The default WordPress theme Twenty Sixteen is clean, simple, and responsive; as such it makes a perfect “starter” theme for all but the most arcane designs.
However, it uses REM — a.k.a. relative em units — for the all the measurements and sizing in its stylesheet and, unfortunately, unless one is a genius, REMs have to be calculated instead of intuited. Hence the point of a pixels to REM calculator, something you had no idea you needed until this very moment:
The one on Foliovision’s site is great (and the inspiration for this post). I wrote my own version here because I wanted to figure out how it worked.
The resulting REM value is usually a distressing 10 digits long, looking like PI’s red-headed second cousin, except when the pixel value is cleanly-divisible by 14. In those rare cases the REM is just a normal number and, honestly, it’s way more satisfying than probably I should be admitting here.
