README.md

Wordless logo

Wordless is a junction between a WordPress plugin and a theme boilerplate that dramatically speeds up and enhances your custom theme creation. Some of its features are:

  • A structured, organized and clean theme organization
  • Bootstrap a new theme directly within wp-cli
  • Write PHP templates with Pug templating system
  • Write CSS stylesheets using the awesome SCSS syntax
  • Out-of-the-box support to Stylelint configured for SCSS syntax.
  • Write Javascript logic in ES2015 thanks to Babel
  • Automatically polyfill (with core-js) and transpile Javascript based on your support inside .browserslistrc
  • A growing set of handy and documented PHP helper functions ready to be used within your views
  • Preconfigured support to MailHog mail-catcher.
  • Development workflow backed by WebPack, BrowserSync (with live reload), WP-CLI, Yarn. All the standards you already know, all the customizations you may need.

Build Status Documentation Status

Documentation

Complete documentation

Read the complete Wordless documentation at wordless.readthedocs.io where you'll find - hopefully - all the informations about installation, usage guide, in depth explanation about the stack.

If you want to contribute to the documentation.

As a side note: reStructuredText plugin in VSCode could be of great help linting, highlighting and previewing your texts.

Built-in helpers documentation

You can find it at http://welaika.github.io/wordless/docs/latest/html/index.html.

If you are interested in contributing to the documentation:

  • we are documenting php files in
 wordless/helpers/*
  • here is a list of documentation gaps :9
  • brew install doxygen
  • go and add doc following the doxygen conventions
  • compile the new doc with doxygen docs/Doxyfile (from project's root)
  • you'll have an untracked folder docs/build in GiT. Leave it alone and git checkout gh-pages instead.
  • mv docs/build docs/latest overwriting the old one
  • commit and push the branch

Development

Deploy

  • Merge your feature branch - with passing tests - in master with git checkout master && git merge --no-ff feature or by pull request
  • On master update the plugin version (SEMVER) in ./wordless.php ("Version") and readme.txt ("Stable tag") files and commit the updated files.
  • do git tag x.y.x where x.y.z equals to the previously written version.
  • git push origin master --tags to push both commits and tags
  • update the changelog for the new release at https://github.com/welaika/wordless/releases

Automations will do the leftovers, including to publish updated documentation on ReadTheDocs and the plugin on https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordless/

Changelog

A changelog for each tag/relase is mandatory to be compiled at https://github.com/welaika/wordless/releases.

Additional recommended plugins and tools

Wordmove: a great gem (from yours truly) to automatically mirror local WordPress installations and DB data back and forth from your local development machine to the remote staging server;

Known limitations

  • Wordless has not been tested on Windows

Deprecations

4.0

Default configuration has dropped support for CoffeeScritp and for SASS indented syntax. Obviously you are free to change Webpack's config once you've created the theme, but now we officially support ES2015 and SCSS instead.

3.0

Ruby-based preprocessors and the WORDLESS_LEGACY configuration are definitely dropped. Theme's folder structure changed.

2.5

Wordless 2.5 deprecates the old ruby preprocessor support. It is disabled by default. If you need to develop an old theme you need to explicitely activate them by setting the following in your wp-config.php:

define('WORDLESS_LEGACY', true);

We plan to completely remove this support in Wordless 3.

Localization

Wordless is available in English, German, Greek, Italian and Spanish, at the moment.

The user interface was translated by Wasilis Mandratzis-Walz (German and Greek), David Mejorado (Spanish).

Your help is welcome! Add your own language using Transifex.
