Hello. I’ve worked on vanilla WP hundreds of times and never knew the trellis|bedrock|sage env existed until a couple weeks ago.
I took over a new project and the last dev left under not so good terms so I never got an actual handoff so I’ve had to just lurk around and figure stuff out. Obviously compared to vanilla WP, the roots,io env is a lot more complicated.
What I got was a github repo that looks like it has just the app folder, which appears to be all I need I was hoping some experts on the roots,io env could help me get up to speed.
- How do I know if Trellis was being used? Is it possible to just use bedrock + sage without it?
I found this help article, but how do I know if Trellis was used? This help doc mentions an “Ansible Vault password” which I obviously don’t have and would probably have a difficult time obtaining it.
- How does sage compile? I tried to use follow these instructions but got nowhere.
- If the site has already been deployed to a live server, does that mean the last dev already installed all the compiling assets on the live server? So just updating the actual code in Git and pushing would suffice? Does a manual compile need to be done on the server with Sage?
- For now I just need to make a simple update. On vanilla WP it’s basically adding 3 lines of jquery|js to one of the main js files or in the footer.php file. How do I make a simple change like this in the roots,io env?
If anyone could point me in the right direction, it would be highly appreciated. Thank you!
