I recently came across mention of the [Underpin WP framework](https://github.com/Underpin-WP/underpin), and was initially very enthused with what it could do, and I realized how much I needed something like that. I tried to get into it, but realized that since its latest update the docs have been sorely lacking, and I haven’t been able to get much to work with it. As a result, I probably wouldn’t want to lean on it too much anyway, even if I could get it to work.
That said, is there anything else like that out there? The big things I liked about it were that it was handled through composer, and that it gave more of an object-oriented interface to handling WP operations. It also provided helpful wrappers that gave all the various custom objects you might create in a plugin (post types, widgets, taxonomies, etc) a consistent interface to create and work with them. That’s huge, and would save me so much grief and banging my head against the wall.
Normally anything I do in WP feels like I might as well be building a website/plugin by typing HTML 1 into notepad. I’d love to get some slicker tools to work with, and this seemed like a lead in that respect. Any pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated!
