WordPress frameworks

Postby KBleivik » Fri Jun 24, 2011 2:16 pm

A framework sets what the name indicates a framework for your project, like the many http://www.phpframeworks.com/ A library like http://javascriptlibraries.com/ is not the same. A library is most often included in your projects instead of restricting your project as a framework may do. Using a framework for your site development can greatly speed up your development process.

WordPress is of course no exeption: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/constructor

If you read the WordPress Theme Development Frameworks article http://coding.smashingmagazine.com/2009 ... rameworks/ it mentions a lot of great resources. See also the comments for additional information.

If you wan't to make your own WP themes, you have a lot of options.
  1. Modify an existing theme. Then it is not truly your own theme. Check if you are free to modify an existing theme.
  2. Start with a simple theme (framework) http://www.plaintxt.org/#sandbox at http://www.plaintxt.org/ and modify that.
  3. Modify the default twenty eleven (or ..) theme. In a sense that is then your framework.
  4. You can start from scratch with an index.php and a styles.css file in a new theme folder. Some reading may be needed.
