Finally got around to rebuilding the site! My goal was to create a simple user experience that fits with my own branding.
I also wanted to build the site on the cleanest code possible so I used the following tools:
- Styles: Sass, Compass and Susy
- Pipeline and Asset Management: Gulp, Composer, Bundler and Bower
- WordPress Wrapper: Bedrock and Sage
- Deployment: Git, Trellis (Ansible)
- Environment: Vagrant
There was a time when getting all of these things to work together was an absolute chore, but web standards have come a long way in the past few years! The guys on the Roots team really know their ****!
