Mr. Press is a WordPress development stack similar to Bedrock. Project's main goal is to improve the overall security, portability and deployment process of WordPress, while trying to use the best web development practices.
- WordPress, its themes and plugins are installed and updated via Composer!
wp-contentfolder has been relocated, so it won't mess up with WordPress core
- Critical WordPress settings (such as site URL, database credentials etc) are loaded from the environment variables
- WP Cron is disabled by default and there is a ready-to-use cron job to run
Mr. Press default theme's features
- Bootstrap responsive layout
- Clean templates using Twig templates via Timber plugin
- A lot of customizations can be done directly from code:
- Integration with Advanced Custom Fields plugin (group fields can be registered from theme code) and used via Timber
Make sure that Composer and the rest of the requirements are installed.
Just go the web root folder (usually it's
/var/www) and create your copy of the project:
$ cd /var/wwww $ composer create-project salaros/mr-press my-new-website
Create WordPress tables
Now change to
/var/www/my-new-website directory and edit the
.env file and chnage DB connection settings and site URL:
$ cd /var/www/my-new-website $ editor .env $ composer run-script initialize
Create cron job
$ cd /var/www/my-new-website $ composer run-script create-cron-job
- Fork it:
- Create your feature branch:
git checkout -b my-new-feature
- Commit your changes:
git commit -am 'Add some feature'
- Push to the branch:
git push origin my-new-feature
- Submit a pull request
- Mr. Press has been tested on Linux and might also work correctly on Mac OS X. Windows compatibility will be implemented later
- Most likely Mr. Press is not compatible with WordPress multisie, but this feature has been already added to the RoadMap
