Building Themes on Jetpack

wordpress

#1

Hi guys,

I`m thinking of building the portfolio section of my next WordPress theme on the Jetpack’s Custom Content Types module.

Since we`re advised to keep the extra functionality into plugins, what do you think about using Jetpack as a base for it?

My big concern is that since Jetpack suggests you to connect to WordPress.com to use some of the plugin`s feature, this might be not quite a great move for the users.

What`s your experience with the plugin?

What does Envato think about loading the Jetpack plugin via the TGM Activation class?

Thank you!
