If you use frameworks for WordPress theme development, which do you like to use and why? If you do not use a framework, explain why not?

We use own framework!

Yes i know its take a lot of time for development and debugging but we build it in special architecture that saved our time 3x in theme development even more than frameworks like Redux!
But its related to your programming skills! if you are not at good level just use open source frameworks ( we recommend Redux because have good documentation and community ) or if you are in good level and you think you will work in this field for a long time then i recommend develop yourself framework.

I’m pretty new with Wordpress theme development but i’m using Bootstrap for the front-end development and Titan Framework for theme options.

I agree with @Better-Studio on using your own framework, but if you are looking for a starter theme to build on, I’d use Underscores. It’s a great place to start for any new theme.

I’ve looked at Redux and think it looks great. But I’m becoming increasingly more interested in Runway. Has anyone used Runway for theme development yet?

Nice input. I’m looking to create just one theme and focus on making that theme the best! So it may not be in my best interest to make my own framework since I won’t be making a lot of themes. If I decide to change this, I will take your advice into heavy consideration.

Yes! in first theme you will learn many an many things! that was the main reason that we published a test theme just for 2 month and after that we deleted that! sounds ugly but we taught a lot of experiences that showed success line to we ;)

I don’t saw ant framework! VC is popular and have a lot of options but backend code in not good ( i think ;) ) and fields of that are simple and for complex and user friendly add-ons you must develop new fields! currently i think we added 5 or 6 new field!
