WooCommerce Development VVV

WooCommerce Development VVV is an auto-sitesetup designed to be used with Varying Vagrant Vagrants for developing or testing WooCommerce focused plugins and themes.

Supports VVV 2.0 and above only.


If you do not have an existing vvv-custom.yml file added to you Vagrant setup then you can copy the example vvv-custom.yml which can be found in the /config-yml/ folder into the root directory of your Vagrant install.

If you are already using an existing vvv-custom.yml file for your VVV installation simply add the code below to your existing vvv-custom.yml file instead of copying the quickstart file over to your install.

# The woocommerce-develop configuration is useful for contributing to WooCommerce.

    - local.woocommerce.dev

If your Vagrant is running, from the Vagrant directory run vagrant halt followed by vagrant up --provision.

Now you can sit back and relax as provisioning may take a while to complete.

Once provisioning has completed you can visit local.woocommerce.dev to see your newly installed site.

Important Step!

Once logged into the admin section of the site for the first time you will see a message at the top of the site requesting that you run the WooCommerce Setup Wizard.

Do this immediately as it sets up various important WooCommerce functionality including the cart and checkout pages etc and is required to complete the installation.

This is all the manual configuration thats required for a basic install!

Installed theme

The default theme that is installed and setup on the VVV is the free Storefront theme for WooCommerce.

During installation two pages are created titled Blog and Homepage, homepage has a page template activated on it which displays the custom Storefront homepage layout.

The Homepage is then set as the Frontpage of the WordPress install with the Blog page being as the posts page from WordPress > Settings > Reading > Front page displays

Custom Menu

A custom menu titled Primary Menu is created and added to the primary-menu area within the Storefront theme.

You can use this to add some more custom menu items should you require those.

Installed Plugins

You can see which plugins are installed and activated from looking at the vvv-init.sh file and these may change on occasion hence I'm not going to list them here.

Demo Content

The site has the official WordPress theme review theme unit test data installed for blog posts etc. For WooCommerce the official product dummy data is installed.
