Why is there almost no templates built with Gaia framework?
I’m thinking of creating my first template for AD ( I have some spare time right now)
And building templates with Gaia is super easy and most importantly super fast !
I would like to hear some thoughts from people that have templates here, and are familiar with the Gaia framework.
What are the pros and cons.

I think Triworks used Gaia framework for one of their templates and it was a bit of a disaster support wise… as a result a good template, rated poorly.. I guess because it’s hard to work with for novices.

I know a triworks template uses it which seemed to annoy those who bought it flicking through the comments…

I also did some freelance work on this template and to be honest it was a royal pain not knowing the GAIA framework and trying to get stuff to work…

I don’t think AD buyer is a good target for selling Gaia module. I think Gaia can be good alternative for you in the freelance world and will speed up your work-flow like crazy + it handle SEO much better then most templates here .

But in AD you can get into trouble on the support, but i think overall Gaia module can have some nice advantage but i don’t think as a developer i want to use it under my name.

I’ve used this pix font a couple months ago in a freelance project. It’s called Kroeger 06_55. And here you can see it in Flash – sized at 8pt.

Hope this helps ;)

Dani
