Roots: The starter theme that will make you a better developer

Roots isn’t for people who’ve never developed a theme before, but for people who are looking for a good way to start their custom themes, this is the way to go. This talk will expect people to have some background with developing custom themes. Jumping into development with Roots will be a lot easier after this talk!

In this session we will be reviewing:

  • Installing Roots and it’s dependencies
  • Brief intro to Bower/Grunt.js or Gulp.js
  • The Roots file structure + special lib files
  • Using LESS
  • The Root’s wrapper
  • Developing on Roots and customizing Roots
