Non Wordpress equivalent to Sage



I came to Sage from Yeoman, using webapp. When I discovered it I though Wow! This is amazing, is there something similar in WP?

Now it’s happening the other way around. I just developed a front-end landing and using the Yeoman Webapp everything was outdated, some things broken and inefficient (like imagemin for example), and it made waste a lot of hours.

So I was wondering, which solution similar to Sage quality standards do you use or recommend?



Are you looking for just a straight HTML, CSS and JS with Webpack to transpile? Bootstrap is already Webpack ready and Foundation 6.4.4 will too, I believe. I use some Hugo and Jekyll templates that do close to what Sage is doing. Try Github, there should be a template for everything you need, or at least enough to get started to make your own Webpack BP template.


Thanks @NusserStudios!

Yes, I am looking for a very simple Webpack configuration with Sass, Imagemin, code linter, etc… With, or without bootstrap. Just the same as Sage but without Wordpress.

This was exactly accomplished with webapp generator.

I know there are lots of other generators, and github provides many templates, but Sage it’s quite unique, so I wanted to know your experience with specific options, coming from a Sage mindset.


For non-WordPress projects I just use Laravel Mix (which we’ll be switching to) and drop in the assets folder from Sage


You might look at Jigsaw which brings a lot of the Blade/Laravel love into static sites. It compiles with Laravel Mix.


thank you @benword and @danielroe!

This is what I was looking for :slight_smile:


Jigsaw is awesome, thanks for mentioning it. I’ve been using Jekyll and Hugo for smaller projects, but this is my new go to.



Happened to come across this, but if you’re still interested in a solution I would recommend Parcel

I’ve used it for some landing pages and it’s super easy to get up and running with Sass, ES6, cache-busted assets, and adding any other package you may need (Bootstrap, Bulma, etc).
