WCSF: Notes from WordCamp 2011 (part 2: WordPress theme framework review site?)

Hanging out with Matt at the end of WordCampSF 2011

One framework to rule them…

One idea I had recently (and discussed with Ryan of WPCandy and others at WordCampsf2011) was to create a WordPress theme framework review site. I’d like to present this idea here and see if anyone is interested in pursuing this idea with me.

There are so many frameworks out there. And I keep having the same conversation with developers where they want to develop their own. I would love a resource like the trusty old CMS matrix that compares the 100s of CMS options out there and lets the user sort by features (that site is far from perfect but I know many people who find it and use it as a resource in selecting a CMS—of course they all end up working with WordPress or Drupal).
So what criteria would be useful in a framework comparison site? Some obvious options:
  • Is the WordPress framework Open Source?
  • If not how much does it cost?
  • GPL?
  • Page layout options?
  • SEO vs SEO plugin ready?
  • Widget region list or ability to make regions within framework?
  • Export/import theme settings?
  • What else…
