    Thank you RossMitchell, your answer is more useful to me

    Useful is the goal.


    but if I want develop new themes for sale, is it a good idea to provide only child themes?

    There are some child themes in the marketplace, which I find surprising. Usually these have a theme framework as parent which is never used raw. Of course the reason against buying child themes is that there is no such thing as a grandchild theme, hence three different aspects of theme customization are impacted:
    – customize style.css, effective alternatives are the customizer and plugins
    – customize functions.php, viable alternative is to put code into a plugin
    – custom page templates, no other option, the clients will have to manage their own backups and updates.

    From your initial query:


    Do I need to hardly coding its templates (archive, article, category, sidebar, search, etc)?

    The template docs will show you how specific these are and how they fall back.
