Roots starter gets you developing WordPress themes rapidly

Roots is a starter theme for WordPress development that lets you focus on completing designs instead of spending unnecessary time getting the WordPress functionality working.

Roots is based on the markup of HTML5 Boilerplate and the WordPress PHP of Starkers (another starter theme).

It comes with the CSS frameworks Blueprint, which is more general, and 960.gs, which is a grid-only framework.

Roots includes several other interesting features — cleaner WordPress code output and blog posts that support the hNews microformat.

Roots is the work of designer Ben Word.
