Theme Development

WPDistillery is included in this repo as the development enviornment for this theme. Relevant secionts from WPDistillery's documentation included below:

Version 2.1.0 (21.06.2017) - fully compatible with Scotch Box 3.0


Vagrant commands
  • vagrant up will start the machine. The first ever vagrant up in your project will also install Scotch Box and execute provisioning
  • vagrant provision will execute provisioning. This is where WPDistillery runs its core function which is installing and configuring WordPress according to config.yml. Before that, it will also update WP-CLI and set the upload size to 64MB. Normally vagrant provision should not be executed manually but can be used to re-run the WPDistillery setup in case you want to re-install WordPress.
  • vagrant reload will restart vagrant. This is required for changes made in the Vagrantfile to take effect.
  • vagrant halt will shut down the running machine.
  • More informations can be found at
