Presspack

Make Wordpress theme development great again.

Features

  • Modern JavaScript through Webpack
  • Live reload via BrowserSync
  • SCSS support
  • Easy dev environments with Docker Compose
  • Stateless, immutable plugin management via Composer
  • Helpful HTML5 Router for firing JS based on Wordpress page slug.
  • Nothing else.

Requirements

  • Node.js
  • Yarn
  • PHP and Composer
  • Docker for Mac / Windows
  • Docker Compose

Getting Started

git clone git@github.com:jaredpalmer/presspack.git
yarn install
composer install # if you want plugins ( not required )
docker-compose up 

Developing Locally

To work on the theme locally, open another window/tab in terminal and run:

yarn start

This will open a browser, watch all files (php, scss, js, etc) and reload the browser when you press save.

Building for Production

To create an optimized production build, run:

yarn build

This will minify assets, bundle and uglify javascript, and compile scss to css. It will also add cachebusting names to then ends of the compiled files, so you do not need to bump any enqueued asset versions in functions.php.

Changing ports

There are two ports involved, the port of the dockerized wordpress instance, and the port the Browser Sync runs on. To change the port of the dockerized wordpress instance go into docker-compose.yml and modify ports.

# docker-compose.yml
 ...
  ports:
    - "9009:80" # only need to change `9009:80` --> localhost:9009
 ...

If you want to change the port you develop on (the default is 4000), then open scripts/webpack.config.js and modify BrowserSyncPlugin's port option. If you changed the wordpress port above, be sure to also change proxy accordingly. Don't forget the trailing slash.

// scripts/webpack.config.js
...
new BrowserSyncPlugin({
  notify: false,
  host: 'localhost', 
  port: 4000, // this is the port you develop on. Can be anything.
  logLevel: 'silent',
  files: ['./*.php'],
  proxy: 'http://localhost:9009/', // This port must match docker-compose.yml
}),
...
