SMOF (Slightly Modified Options Framework) is a good one.

There’s no reason to add more weight and potential security risks to your theme with external options panels anymore. Since 3.4 WordPress ships with its own option panel;

https://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Customization_API

And as of 3.6 it’s enabled in all themes by default and available in the “appearance” menu, it makes no sense not to use it :)

If you use the theme customisation api, then you can even show it off to your potential buyers with this plugin;

Using the theme customisation API is definitely the way forwards, it makes sense to take advantage of it.

I made a simple tool to write the code for me, you’re welcome to use it: WP Options Creator

Guys do you think WordPress theme Customizer API https://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Customization_API

have more features or equivalent to SMOF or OPTION TREE Framework?

Because i see WP Theme customizer can change just colors, background and fonts only.

Thank you
