Originally reported by @grapplerulrich in the Twenty Nineteen GitHub repo:

The header in the template-functions.php file is described as:

Functions which enhance the theme by hooking into WordPress

According to that description, all of the functions within template-functions.php should hook into either a filter or an action of WordPress.

This is not the case for the following functions:

  • twentynineteen_can_show_post_thumbnail()
  • twentynineteen_image_filters_enabled()
  • twentynineteen_post_thumbnail_sizes_attr()
  • twentynineteen_get_avatar_size()
  • twentynineteen_is_comment_by_post_author()
  • twentynineteen_get_discussion_data()
  • twentynineteen_hsl_hex()

These are helper functions that would fit best in another file like inc/helper-functions.php.

Also, twentynineteen_add_dropdown_icons() could be moved to icon-functions.php to join twentynineteen_nav_menu_social_icons().
