If you manage multiple themes with similar npm dependencies you should install npm packages globally and link them in your theme directories. First of all this saves a lot of disk space. But it also disburdens the upgrade process of development frameworks and toolkits that are used across projects.
1. Install packages globally by adding the “-g” flag: $ npm install -g package_1 package_2 package_3 package_4 etc.
2. Link the packages in your local theme directory/directories:
Bootstrap-Theme $ npm link bootstrap @popperjs/core ...
Material-Theme $ npm link material-components-web ...
FSE-Theme $ npm link autoprefixer css-loader sass sass-loader ...
Block based Themes are coming to WordPress sooner or later and we just published the first “beta” release of our Full Site Editing Starter Theme.
If you see yourself as an early adopter who likes to get his/her hands dirty feel free to generate a copy via the Theme Generator: https://them.es/starter-fse
The source code is licensed under GPLv2 and has been published on GitHub.
Full Site Editing is a collection of features that allow to fully customize a WordPress site via a new site editor. Overall the Full Site Editing experience using block based Themes looks promising and already works pretty well but you need to be aware that not all features are final and that bugs will appear during development.
At the current state (WordPress version <5.9) this Starter Theme is not recommended for production sites. Please use it at your own risk and provide technical feedback to the Gutenberg team if possible!
One more thing: Block based features are still in development and have not yet been fully integrated in WordPress core. In order to enable the Site editor you need to install the Gutenberg Plugin on your site.
Over the last couple of months we’ve been working hard on the latest addition to our product line – a complete billing suite which integrates seamlessly into WordPress – and we’re happy to announce that the free version has been shipped to the WordPress Plugin directory
🙌🏻 🙌🏻 🙌🏻
If you are working as a Freelancer or are responsible for Accounting and Billing in a small agency and are looking for an easy-to-use, future-proof PbD* solution to create Invoices, Quotes and basic Accounting records, go on and give Billy a try.
*Privacy by Design: Billy posts are privately published, by default.
The plugin will work with any modern WordPress theme that supports the Block editor.
Important notice: The Grunt config in our Starter Themes got replaced by gulp + webpack in the latest releases.
Gulp is quite similar to Grunt and allows to automate tasks like SASS > CSS compilation.
