I can design a theme in about 2 or 3 days, but it takes me about month to code a premium theme.

Is there a best way to write fast code?

I am curious to know!

Please share your experiences, how do you save your valuable time? and how do you code your themes fast?

Tips will be really appreciated!

Thanks

Hor me is different, it takes me about 1 week or more to design a theme and it takes me about a week to code it including the IE fixes.

I use a lot Text Expander which makes all the work easier.

Wow a month. I think that would only be the case for beginners. I spent more time designing and less on code. The code is mostly there already.

Split window your html and css.

Get another screen and keep your browser opened on that…

Quit your messengers and facebook and twitter

You’ll code faster than you do now :)

I’d rather code ‘right’ than code fast.

+1 code wrong and then….. :) you will lose more time with debugging than the actual codding

Its not the case for beginners at all, freshface is one of the top author, he himself saying that he spent 3 months on “Creative Zodiac Theme” do you think he is a beginner?

And i think “duotive” also has spent months on his first theme, i had read it somewhere on forum post. correct me if i am wrong.

I have spend almost 3 months on my first wordpress premium theme, and the work is still on. Maybe you’ll see my work on themeforest soon.

I think than you need to know your weapon (programmming language and API ) for “write fast code”, but for fast programming you need more logic, i train my logic in programming contests like http://www.topcoder.com/tc or http://icpc.baylor.edu/
