Thanks Ionut for hunting us! The reasons we made IncludeWP: 1. I realized that there are so many high-quality frameworks that I had no clue existed. So I thought it would be cool to have them all in one place. 2. The team announced that frameworks are no longer allowed in the plugin directory. This move had disappointed many people and made the frameworks discovery practically impossible. 3. Choosing a framework for a long-term project is like taking a mortgage. We wanted to provide a simple way for developers to check the "credit score" of the framework by showing the collection of other WordPress plugins & themes that are using the framework. Shout out to Luca Fracassi from Addendio who helped us make this happen. 4. Code reusability is awesome! Please feel free to tell us what you think of this open-sourced project! Oh, and you can easily add a framework if you know of one that's not on there. That would actually be great!
