Roots Discourse

Live Examples


@paul_tibbetts Thank you!

Yes, I’m planning on a series. (There’s a lot of information to cover.) However, any information that I put out might be dated quickly; seems like they’re closing in on a 2.0 release, which will bring some big changes.

Overall I loved working with it. I actually wrote my Vue templates first, and then went back and converted them to WP templates so the site works without JS; working with WP templates, by comparison, felt archaic. Plus, the entire app weighs in at ~65kb gzipped, including Vue itself, and I’ve still got some fat to trim. No jQuery needed, too.

If you’re interested, it’s definitely worth jumping in and trying something out. The docs are clear, the forums and Gitter are helpful, and there are some good boilerplates to get you started.


A couple I did while working for Eight Arms in London:
Both use Sage (I used Bedrock and Trellis in dev, but I didn’t deploy them)

One I did nearly a year ago using Sage and Bedrock, deployed to AWS using Elastic Beanstalk:

(Warning! It’s very pink!)

I’m available for freelance work by the way…


We have recently started using Roots and we love it.




Another old-site conversion. Built this Real Estate website on Blankslate over a year ago and just transferred it to Trellis/Bedrock. Deployed on Vultr. Massive drop in resource requirements. Uses WP All Import + Easy Property Listings plugins to update property feeds.


Moved from Roots theme to Sage theme.


Hey Josh, would you mind sharing how you deployed the with g Elastic Beanstalk?
It will be super useful, thanks


We deployed back in February
