WordPress Genesis Starter Child Theme
WordPress Starter Theme for use as Child Theme of the Genesis Framework for building custom themes. Uses SCSS, AutoPrefixr and Grunt for all processing tasks. Syncs changes across local development devices with BrowserSync. Tested up to WordPress 4.0 RC1 and Genesis 2.1.2.
Rename folder to your theme name, change the
style.scss intro block to your theme information. Open the theme directory in terminal and run
npm install to pull in all Grunt dependencies. Run
grunt to execute tasks. Code as you will.
If you are using MAMP or Vagrant, change the
proxy option in the
grunt browserSync task to match your vhost URL.
- Concatenate and minify plugins in
- Minify and lint
To concatenate and minify your jQuery plugins, add them to the
assets/js/vendor directory and add the
js filename and path to the
uglify task. Previous versions of the starter theme automatically pulled all plugins in the
vendor directory, but this has changed to allow more granular control and for managing plugins and assets with bower.
The theme includes deployments via grunt-rsync. The Gruntfile includes setups for staging and production - edit your paths and host, then run
grunt rsync:staging or
grunt rsync:production to deploy your files via rsync.
