Checking out Starkers for a solid starting framework – it doesn’t strike me as a particularly “bare bones” template, and wondered if anyone had experience working with it. Running a check in Theme Check on a clean installation shows dozens of REQUIRED notices and WARNINGS. Doesn’t seem like a great starting point to build out a independent framework when you have to immediately address a bunch of issues from the start.

What were you using to build your themes before? :D

I’ve used Starkers to build custom websites from ground up, and it’s really good for that purpose. However it’ll be too much work to build it into a custom framework for commercial themes. Better to just start from scratch.

I turned http://underscores.me into my own little personal tool (didn’t have to do much as it was already done for you, I just went over every line of code and organized it to better suit my dev/design process, saved me so much time as sometimes I spend more time developing than designing), it comes with everything you need and a few cool extras (like Keyboard navigation for image attachment templates).

I was just experimenting with the idea of using a different framework. I generally work with a framework I’ve built, using the Skeleton grid framework for the baseline. But I try to experiment with different approaches after each theme is done.
