Runway is more than a framework, it’s a platform for making awesome WordPress themes. Designed to let you Instantly Generate New WordPress Themes, without coding. Use the Drag and Drop Options Builder to create custom theme options, and not just one. Add as many options pages as you need. You have full control over where your admin menus show to make them unique and intuitive.
A better tool for making better themes.
Simplify the task of creating themes with Runway’s admin tools. Instantly add, edit or duplicate a theme. Modify names, descriptions, folders, admin menus and more. Apply the latest Runway features to child themes, export as standalone themes and deploy to clients. Speed up development by letting Runway work for you.
Distribute without the Runway framework.
Automatically compile your child theme into self-contained standalone versions, independent of the Runway framework. This allows you to distribute standard WordPress themes without the parent framework tagging along. With Runway you can develop themes that are easy to manage and simple to deploy.
Easy to use, drag and drop control.
Custom theme option pages made the easy way. Forget hand-coding a pile of complex arrays. With Runway it’s simple, do it all with drag-and-drop, click-and-pick controls. Make unlimited admin pages, organize theme options into groups and tabs. Create custom input types for specialized functionality.
Add powerful features in just seconds.
Runway has a modular structure and uses extensions to add functionality. A Runway extension is similar to a WordPress plugin that attaches directly to your theme. When you export the finished product the extensions become core theme features. Add advanced theme features with a single click.
