My name is Alex Mansfield and I’m developing tools for WordPress developers. I’m addressing pain points that have come up in my own development projects with WordPress, and I’m interested in hearing about the struggles that you are facing as well. Here’s what I’ve been working on:

Rampart, a Theme for Developers

Rampart is a minimally styled theme designed to enable developers to build better themes in less time by taking care of all the low level details.

Comprehensive Developer Guides

When I say comprehensive, I mean it. I dare you to find tutorials more complete than these.

Libraries to speed development and improve quality

Menu Object (mo.js) is a Javascript library for handling multi-level navigation menus on all devices and screen sizes.

Cadence is a CSS library for perfecting vertical rhythm.

Cadence Check is a WordPress plugin that makes it easy to check vertical rhythm by displaying a background grid equal to the default line-height of whatever theme is currently active.

Let’s talk

I’d love to hear what you’re working on and what I can do to help you succeed. Feel free to contact me on twitter using the link below. If you’re interested in staying up to date with the things I’m working on here, go ahead and sign up for the Theme Foundation newsletter. Thanks!
