Getting started

To get started you'll need to install the required npm packages. To install these components you will need to have Node.js installed on your system.

$ cd [THEME-DIR]
$ npm install
$ composer install


Municipio requires ACF PRO.

Coding standards

For PHP, use PSR-2 and PSR-4 where applicable.


You can use Gulp to compile, concatenate and minify SASS and JavaScript. The compiling of SASS will also automatically add vendor-prefixes where needed.

To compile both js and sass and start the "watch" task run the following command from the theme directory:

$ gulp

We added support for webpack

Webpack is a bit faster than gulp. So if you prefer to use webpack instead of gulp, just run the following command:

$ npm run watch

or just for a single build:

$ npm run build


Block author pages

Author pages is blocked by default. To "unblock" add the following constant to wp-config (or other suitable place).


Load styleguide from a different host

Constants for setting the base URI to the styleguide. Useful for third-party sites.

define('DEV_MODE', true);

CSS class in BEMIT style for theme name
