I’ll tell you one thing – working with some many API’s is pain in the ..back

Yeah, definitely will need some solid thought on that.

Probably would be a good idea to make use of the Keyring plugin to handle management of authentication etc. to start with.

Could maybe build it with React or something too, and make the API calls from JavaScript so they’re better managed.

Hi Japh,

That is a great concept.

We have started working on it.

Fantastic, I’d love if you’d keep me updated on your progress :)

It’s a nice ideal. But if our team build it, we will release it as a service (worth milions), not a $58 theme :D

Hahaha! Yeah, wouldn’t that be nice! But then you’d be competing with Gyroscope more directly, who are priced at $7/mo. It’d take you over 8 months to make the same amount off a single customer, and that’s after you managed to convert them to a paid plan instead of the free tier Gyroscope offers. Oh, and you’d have ever increasing hosting costs…

$58 theme sounds easier to me ;)

Since the release of https://gyrosco.pe/, I’ve been waiting to see some good WordPress themes appear on ThemeForest that take inspiration from it and allow people to track their lives and hold onto the data.

So far though… nothing, and I’d love to hear why that might be.

Do you think it’s a lack of awareness that people are interested in this sort of thing? Or is it “too hard” to create a theme that does this? (If so, why?)

Personally, I’m interested in a theme that allows me to include feeds from Twitter, Instagram, Swarm / Foursquare, and Strava (or similar) to provide a kind of live infographic on my current situation and recent history. That’s basically what Gyroscope does.

As a theme / plugin developer, what are your thoughts on this type of theme? (And the plugin that would likely power it.)

I got the same problem with theme check plugin. But I found that it’s not my theme, it’s node_module folder of grunt. When I removed it, theme check worked well. I guess that it’s related to translation string. Hope my solution can help other people.

In some ways, it makes the most sense to use Theme Check to test a theme that’s been prepared for release, rather than while it’s still in development. (e.g. the `build` rather than the `src`.)

So you wouldn’t have `node_modules` in `build` anyway.

Oh just saw this! How awesome is that – threw a bit of cash his way. Looking forward to seeing some bbPress improvements.

Yeah, pretty awesome! Nice for WebDevStudios to push him over the finish line :)

Great news! Looks like John has managed to get his campaign fully funded, he mentions in Update #3 on his blog.

Thanks so much to everyone from ThemeForest and Envato who contributed. John’s a top guy, and I’m excited to see what he can do with BuddyPress, bbPress, and GlotPress now that he’s been liberated to really focus on them.

Everybody wins! :D

Thanks for sharing. I wouldn’t have known about the campaign otherwise and I love those projects. I’ve added a small amount too, I hope it helps ;)

My pleasure!

I know a number of authors on ThemeForest (and perhaps CodeCanyon too) use BuddyPress and/or bbPress for their support forums. And I think we all benefit from GlotPress allowing WordPress to be translated into all different languages :)

Ar.. ar… aree you back at Envato? ;-)

Nope! Just looks like my staff badge hasn’t been removed. I have no power, just a badge :)

Just added some small amount and I really hope that it would help XD! Just a little thing to give back to the community of BuddyPress. :)

It all helps. You’re awesome! :)
