Theme installation

# @ app/themes/ or wp-content/themes/
$ composer create-project roots/sage your-theme-name dev-master

During theme installation you will have the options to:

  • Update theme headers (theme name, description, author, etc.)
  • Select a CSS framework (Bootstrap, Bulma, Foundation, Tachyons, none)
  • Add Font Awesome
  • Configure Browsersync (path to theme, local development URL)
