Before starting, consult the Composer reference for standard usage instructions.
Use composer create-project to deploy a new project, specifying one branch.

composer create-project solsoft/wordpress-boilerplate:4.x-dev my-project --stability dev --no-interaction;
cd my-project;
composer update;
composer show;
composer run;


Clone the git repository pointing to one of the development branches.
Merge requests should be submitted against these branches.

git clone -b 4.x;
cd wordpress-boilerplate;
composer install;
composer update;
composer show;
composer run;


The project can be reset by running composer cleanup-project to delete the vendor/, assets/ and app/ directories and the composer.lock file.
Optionally you may run composer examples-deploy to install example WordPress Contributed libraries, plugins and themes example dependencies. These can also be undeployed by running composer examples-undeploy. See more information about this in the composer.examples directory.


See the composer README for information about composer packages.
