Hello, as someone who’s relatively new to web development, and new to WordPress, I’m a bit confused as to what platform is right for me. From my understanding you use Genesis to create child themes from pre-existing starter child themes, like genesis-sample or another bought from studiopress. Then mess around with style.css and use framework specific hooks and filters to get the functionality you want.
However Roots incorporates modern build tools and ideas from outside of “WordPress world,” like better folder structure and deployment, which if your creating a genesis child theme (w/o Roots) you’d have to go through a lot of extra work to get setup.
My question is can you use sage together with genesis to customize a child theme, and would you if you could? Do you just create complete custom themes with Sage, or have you built your own parent “theme framework”? What are your thoughts on using something like genesis? Can you give examples of where you would use one and not the other?
Sorry for the loaded question, but if someone could shed light on this and nudge me in the right directions it would be greatly appreciated.
