Build Status

Bedrock is a modern WordPress stack that helps you get started with the best development tools and project structure.

Much of the philosophy behind Bedrock is inspired by the Twelve-Factor App methodology including the WordPress specific version.

Features

  • Better folder structure
  • Dependency management with Composer
  • Easy WordPress configuration with environment specific files
  • Environment variables with Dotenv
  • Autoloader for mu-plugins (use regular plugins as mu-plugins)

Use Trellis for additional features:

  • Easy development environments with Vagrant
  • Easy server provisioning with Ansible (Ubuntu 14.04, PHP 5.6 or HHVM, MariaDB)
  • One-command deploys
