Yesterday, on stage at An Event Apart Atlanta, I announced Pears: an open source WordPress theme for creating your own markup & style pattern library.
I wanted to create my own database repository of commonly used patterns and figured the tool might be useful for others as well. Breaking interfaces down into patterns has been immensely helpful in learning and reevaluating the best possible code to implement them. I've just gotten started and will be adding more as I create them.
But Pears isn't about how I code these patterns—it's a tool for creating your own.
The theme is available on GitHub for those that want to chip in and make it even better. Admittedly, the code is a little rough here and there, but it works.
Looking forward to seeing others' takes on the patterns that power flexible web interfaces.
