Theme Frameworks. Those two words have buzzed around the WordPress community since the beginning of this year. Every time I turn around, someone else is developing their own theme framework. But, if you side with Dion Hulse’s line of thinking where any theme can be classified as a theme framework then there are thousands of them to wade through.
1stwebdesigner.com has put together a compilation of 20 different theme frameworks and starting resources. The usual suspects show up on the list: Hybrid, Thematic, Carrington, and WP Framework. New to me on this list is Vanilla as Alister Cameron is still working on it, Whiteboard, OnePress, and The WordPress Starter Theme Project.
Looks like our buddy Dan Cole is going to have some work to do conducting another one of his framework charts so we can see how all of these frameworks compare.
