Today is a really special day for us here at ThemeFuse. From the desire to empower developers to build outstanding WordPress themes we’ve been working hard in the past months to build (from the ground up) an open source WordPress framework. We named it Unyson and we are proud to make it available for free starting today.
We’ve built Unyson with 4 objectives in mind:
1. Easy to work with for developers: all the built in extensions & options work in perfect unison (pun intended). It comes with a lot of built-in extensions like SEO, Styling, Sidebars, Sliders and more. The icing on the cake being the visual Drag & Drop Page Builder that will let users create countless pages at a drop of a dime. Videos tutorials and more details can be found on the framework’s page.
2. Powerful for end users: the Drag & Drop Page Builder as well as the Styling extension are great examples that come to accomplish this objective. Building pages really fast and changing fonts & colors very easy from color pickers will put a great customization power in the hands of end users.
3. Unyson is free & always will be: the framework is free and being created for WordPress it inherits the General Public License (GPL) from WordPress.
4. Extensive documentation & support: what’s a solid framework without the docs & support it deserves? We have a couple of tools ready to help you and us along the way: Developer Manual, Trello Development Card and GitHub Repository.
That being said, we’d love if you’d try it out and let us know what you think. We are keen to make Unyson the best available framework for WordPress. I’ll conclude with some links that will help you view and test the Unyson WordPress framework:
