  • bedrock

    WordPress boilerplate with Composer, easier configuration, and an improved folder structure

    Project mention: WordPress development with GIT | | 2022-09-20

    No, as far as I know it’s not that easy to accomplish with WordPress. You can use Bedrock ( ) as a Boilerplate for your development process. The Database can not be cloned to each environment that easily. Because every instance is working on it’s own. So if others want to work on their local machine they need a database dump which they have to setup manually on their machine. The only way that comes in my mind is to set up a development site that is accessible for every developer. You could then connect your local WordPress environment with the database from that development site. Everyone would than be working in the same database and everybody could see the changes someone else is making. But I think that wouldn’t be best practice but could be an option.

    Project mention: A proposal to officially support SQLite in WordPress | | 2022-09-12

    I didn't spend time looking for specific features, as much as pointing out the standard is to be extremely hand wrangled and therefore prone to such issues. I have no idea if this sort of nonsense (this is an official Automattic plugin) is going to work in SQLite:

    But certainly creating a new table with ENGINE= which you can also find in that file isn't likely to work as intended on other platforms.

  • wprig

    A progressive theme development rig for WordPress.

    Project mention: WordPress development with GIT | | 2022-09-20

    What the other commenter said about Roots is the way I've done it in the past, but honestly it was such a ballache. Instead I just have the templates in a github repo, with a db backup running fairly often. I use for my templates, and just commit the template before building and putting it on stg or prod.
