Surprise! we are very proud to announce our next generation theme framework, Expose! Over the last couple of month we work hard on it and put our best effort to make a next generation theme framework. After releasing 1st version of Expose framework on April 2011 and we moved ourself to make it robust, powerful and dynamic theme framework for end-user and developers. Often people think that framework contain a lot of over bloated code and unnecessary features which slow down there site. Expose is quite opposite of that, because it based on our couple of years experience and it uses most of the best practices of web development. Its not re-inventing the wheel! it just a great toolset to develop and maintain robust themes.
Expose framework will help you to make robust, feature rich theme from scratch just like writing A,B,C! We’ll provide a series of blog post about all the features and details how Expose works.
Here is some key features:
- Expose will install as library so it will not load automatically until you call it.
- Complete control over styling, you can style everything!
- 57 built-in module position with full control on its output. Now you can decide how each module position will render and which position will load on mobile.
- Fixed/Fluid layout with 3 different style.
- Google font lists will update automatically when google release a new font, we've added live font preview on admin.
- Mega Menu with lot of custom animation and settings
- Less support added
- Combine and minify CSS/JS and RTL
- New and improve architecture for Gists, now you can add tiny features by writing few codes and load it inside module or any place you want.
- Many built-in handy features like: IE6 warning, Lazyloader, Scroll to top, Modernizr, Google Analytics etc
