I always think that good WP developers should be able to create everything they need without 3rd party code. If you can create your own plugin, then include it with the theme, if not, just add the support for a plugin that you like. So you are not responsible for that plugin, you just have to make sure it works properly with your theme. A good example id WPML, and that’s how it should be for other premium plugins, here should not be an exception.
“Small authors” as you say, don’t even know how WP works and include all these premium plugin as a feature not as a bonus. That’s not right. This look more like a deal, “buy my theme and your get 100$ worth of premium plugins”. Where we go? In order to sell a theme for 50$ we must include 100$ for free?
I agree with every single word.
Build one theme, with 250 demos, that cover all possible categories… this in my humble opinion is defined as a bundle…
If I would ever need to create 250 demos, this probably would take me more time than the development time required to make the theme itself. I personally don’t like to make the demo pages. Sometime I can make 20 different homepages with the same theme, but in the end I make just one, because this process is boring.Anps said
And html have builders… whats up with that? That’s not html that’s almost like an CMS system
That’s like a virus.
If we don’t stop this type of theme development now, it will stop us later.
I think it is not allowed anymore;http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/item-rejected-page-builders-are-no-longer-permitted-on-themeforest/148580

Should I call him
I’ve been using it since the first release and It is really great. As Jonathan said, “Free. Simple interface. Extendable”. I can recommend it to all developers
It is not a new project… It’s been a long time since the first release.I’m using it and It is really a great code editor. It is open source and there are lots of useful extention which are made by the community. So I think yes, it will become as famous as Sublime Text
