Beans is not officially being updated any longer, but there is an unofficial update in the works.
I have begun switching over to using https://wordpress.org/themes/gridd/ By Ari Stathopoulos.
Ari has a strong focus on using the newest Gutenberg techniques.
I have decided back in 2015 to use the Beans Framework to build various web sites. There were some tutorials spread through the forums at the Get Beans web site, I was able to piece a very few. Often I had to go back to using Genesis child themes. In november of 2016 I built the first version of this tutorial site.
What you see now 7 september 2018 is version two. I know a lot more how to use Beans today then a year ago. That is mostly because of various code snippets people share at the forums. I have lately begun the full switch over to just using Beans child themes.
For the top reasons why to go with Beans check out Tonyas blog post
Then I Met Beans Theme Framework.
For additional WordPress tutorials see my Easy Web Design Tutorials web site. (Still using a Genesis child theme.)
