Please note: This is a Starter Theme meant for hacking and should not be used as a Parent Theme. No autoupdates will be available for the code base.

  1. Recommended: Set up a Localhost DEV environment first.
  2. Download the Starter Theme and unzip it in the /wp-content/themes directory of your WordPress instance.
  3. Make sure that npm is installed on your system.
  4. Open the Project folder in your Terminal/Shell and run the following command to install all required packages:
    $ npm install
  5. Open the localhost site in a new browser window.
  6. Run the watch script and start developing by editing the frontend SASS/JS assets:
    $ npm run watch
  7. Depending on your setup, the server will refresh the page when file changes are detected. Please make sure to disable caching in your browser dev tools.
  8. After development run the build script to minify the assets for the live system:
    $ npm run build
