Bavota, this framework was launched at WordCamp Montreal. What makes it stand out from the crowd is its drag and drop front end editor. This rightly proves that this framework is not just built for developers but also for beginners or newbies.

This framework is built using the latest standards. HTML5 and CSS3 is used in development of this framework. Developers who always believe in using the latest standards will love this, because they will be able to streamline and simplify their code and take WordPress to the future.
An advanced coder, or just a beginner, it doesn’t matter, because here comes the front-end editor. This is really something that sets it apart from the crowd. Changes are directly made in front-end, and no coding knowledge required. You may be wondering how this is possible ? Take a look at below screenshot which explains it well.
Many options can be controlled from front end. Enable hooks, enable drag and drop editor, reset all options to default, enter custom size for sidebar and main content, add logo, social media, etc options can be controlled from here.
Drag and Drop interface:
Besides front end editor, there is also drag and drop interface to set up layouts. Now all you need to do is to just drag and drop layout and change any area like header, sidebar, content and footer.
