Include Sage theme in Bedrock composer

Hello, I’m currently using Trellis + Bedrock. I plan to add a Sage theme but through composer.

I have successfully included my Sage theme repository into the Bedrock composer.

Deploying to the server also seems to be working. I can see and activate my Sage theme there.

However, the CSS and JS are missing! Oh, I just realized that the assets need to be compiled locally.

Then I uncomment the command in deploy-hooks/build-before.yml

When re-deployed, there was an error as follows:

Unable to change directory before execution: [Errno 2] No such file or


I’m assuming the folder isn’t ready yet. So what are the proper steps for using a Sage theme via composer?

Can you show us your deploy-hooks/build-before.yml?

Besides, please double check your sage theme is checked under git under web/app/themes/mysage

I just uncomment the original code from trellis, then change sage to mysage

Check the wordpress_sites.yml files and dubble check the local_path value.
It has to point to your Bedrock site directory.
