Happy to help with this! My theme mostly adds microformats (which other themes also do, I just wanted to customise my looknfeel a bit). Majority of the IndieWeb heavy lifting comes from the IndieWeb WordPress plugins.

Plugins that help reduce friction to getting my material from other sources into flat markdown files that I then can edit, rework and do with as I see fit.
