Material Dashboard for VVV
What is it?
This is a custom dashboard for Varying Vagrant Vagrants (VVV) using Material Design and written in React and Redux.
If you're a WordPress developer and don't know about VVV, you're really missing out.
If you don't care about WordPress, though, then I'm afraid you're not going to have much fun here.
Okay, what does it look like?
I needed an excuse to experiment with Redux, Material UI and Webpack, but didn't feel like writing another to-do or counter application.
May I have it?
Download the pre-built project and unzip it inside the
<VVV ROOT>/www/default folder.
You should see a new
material-dashboard folder. Now enter it and copy the
dashboard-custom.php file into the parent folder to activate the dashboard.
I want to build the dashboard myself
The project requires the NPM and Composer package management applications, both of which are provided by VVV, so you may not need to install anything else. If you want to use the host operating system, though, you'll have to install these first.
- Using the terminal,
- Clone the repository into the
material-dashboarddirectory by running
git clone https://github.com/goblindegook/vvv-material-dashboard.git material-dashboard.
- Enter the
material-dashboarddirectory you've just created.
npm installto install dependencies.
npm run buildto build the project.
npm run activateto copy the dashboard override to the parent directory.
If you're compiling from within VVV, please note that the
npm run build command will occasionally fail with a "process out of memory" error. Re-running the command has worked for me.
Your new dashboard interface should now be available at http://vvv/. Enjoy!
Will you continue to develop and support it?
I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of a roadmap.
