About roots/wordpress

roots/wordpress is an automatically updated Composer package for WordPress core.

Read our announcement post for more details on why this package is needed, and how it's built.


  • src (default repo branch) - contains the source for automatically building the package
  • master - the actual contents of the PHP package

Build process

For every WordPress core release, a corresponding version of roots/wordpress is automatically generated.

This is managed by GitHub actions which push a new branch to this repository and create a tag for each version.
