[Important Question] about use of redux or any plugins with theme

Hello everyone,

Let’s assume we have launched a new template, in which we have used redux framework, to define theme customization options. e.g; 404 page error message is customizable from redux

Now on the stage of theme test, should we check whole theme without installing the Redux Framework?

  1. I mean, install only core theme, and check whether 404 page error message displays properly without Redux too. and once theme detects redux, it should automatically get data from redux options to display in 404 page?

  2. or simply use activate the Redux plugin first, and test theme on the top of it. Also inform customer (as well as envato review staff) to install redux first, then only do theme tests?

Waiting for everyone’s reply, specially from envato review team.
