Bedrock is a new WordPress boilerplate with modern development tools, easier configuration, and an improved folder structure. It’s not a theme, it’s a way to install, configure, and manage WordPress with security and modern development practices in mind.
You’ll end up with a self-contained WordPress project that installs an explicit version of WordPress and required plugins (
composer install) which can be easily configured. All configuration is kept in a
.env text file and deployed (
cap production deploy).
You also get a multi-stage environment for free. You can have a
development configuration for working locally and, a
staging configuration for tests, and a
production configuration for the live site. You can also define custom configuration, such as
backup where you can have a 1:1 copy of the production environment, on a different server.
Bedrock is an open source project made by Roots that you use as base for WordPress projects.Bedrock
