We are a small, niche Wordpress development firm and I’m wondering if we can add Sage and/or Bedrock into our workflow.
In our current workflow we develop remotely on a test box, and then push to the live box with BackupBuddy. Basically we generate a backup from the dev WP site using backupbuddy (a WP plugin), and then restore this backup on the live server.
Whether the clients host with us or with a third-party, they are all in a cPanel shared environment (don’t know if this makes a difference for the questions below).
When we do maintenance we often use a tool such as iThemes sync or ManageWP to keep WP and plugins, etc. updated.
That being said:
- As we are moving into more custom theming, we came across Sage – which we like because of the bootstrap and HTML5boilerplate integration.
Since we are doing or updates via ManageWP, etc. as above, would using your workflow with Sage and Bower be redundant? Would there be an advantage?
- The Bedrock docs say that we can deploy anyway we’d like as long as we use composer install. Knowing that we use the backupbuddy plugin to make backups and to do the live migration, how would
composer installfit in?
Thank you so much for your patience!!!
