I have just launched my second app for 2017, KickoffWP!

KickoffWP aims to make building WordPress themes just a little bit easier. It is 100% free and open-source, and you can find the source on Github. I had the idea to build KickoffWP when I was learning about developing for the WordPress customizer. While working with the customizer, I found that I was copying and pasting a lot of code. This led to errors and mistakes along with just being bored about what I was actually doing.

My goal was to make it so that anyone could easily use an online tool and then simply register the generated class:

KickoffWP is built in Laravel, and I hope to get the community involved by giving feedback and even code contributions. I have plans to add in a javascript skeleton file to make it easier to wire up the customizer fields to the live update capability in WordPress. There are also plans to add in the panels that can be used to better organize the customizer sections.

Please feel free to reach out to me or leave an issue on the Github page if you have any requests or find a bug. Any feedback is good feedback!
