Non-WordPress Sandbox

This repo is the starter project for Come check out the Let’s Build a Non-WordPress Sandbox lab, where you will build this project with Tonya as she explains each step.

You will use this plugin to build labs with us and test constructs in the Docx.


This plugin includes the following features:

  1. Composer - Dependency Manager for PHP
  2. Kint - Awesome package that helps you to debug - forget var_dump and print_r. You are going to love Kint.
  3. Whoops - Oh man, you will wonder why this isn't built into PHP. When an error occurs, this displayer replaces out the PHP orange table and gives you information you can actually use.

  2. Put into your Sites folder
  3. Extract it
  4. Go into the new folder
  5. Run composer install in terminal to bring in the dependencies and install Composer locally.
