Use Laravel for WordPress Theme Development
"Laraish brings the Laravel Framework into WordPress, which allows us to have all the benefits of Laravel and create themes with less effort.
Laraish is aimed at helping create "homemade theme" rather than a general purpose theme (f.ex. a theme with a bunch of options you want to sell later). It's 99% pure Laravel, but has been tweaked to get it working well inside a WordPress theme."
