I am using Sage to build the theme for a website I am developing. I have had no issues getting sage to work and the theme is coming together nicely.
I opted to not use Bedrock or Trellis as I don’t feel I’m ready for making my WordPress sites in that way just yet. Seems there’s a steep learning curve to get them going properly using virtual machines, ansible or capistrano etc.
I need to deploy my site to my WP Engine staging area and I am stuck as I have a Git repo inside another and the theme is not being uploaded. I’ve been trying to use Git Push to accomplish this. I can’t figure out how to merge the 2 repos. I feel very dense here, but the discussions I’ve been reading have been focussed around people using Bedrock.
Since I have not used Bedrock for my theme the advice doesn’t seem to be applicable to me and there wasn’t much in Ben’s book about how to deploy the theme.
I do want to move towards developing the sites in a better way as you often describe but I feel a bit stuck here and don’t know how best to progress without completely restarting my development setup.
Could someone please give me some advice / links to screencasts (anything really) that’ll help me get my theme on my production server.
Any help would be really appreciated.
