Hey Tom, and thank you for your really detailed answer. Appreciating
It’s good, and the issues listed on the repo readme are more FAQ / troubleshooting rather than dealbreakers.
Good to know.
FSE (with or without Sage) has a steeper learning curve than traditional themes in my experience.
Already made one theme, but it was a simple blog, and I really loved the experience.
I’m a frontend developer (knows only basic php) , and SEO man. My mission now is to replace the existing theme that the site is using.
But , are you sure you need Sage? If you want to make a pure FSE theme, then that can be achieved without Blade / Illuminate components… but you could quite easily create a non-PHP FSE theme,
I was thinking on using Sage, since it coming out-of-the-box with lots of features. I could live fine with a simple theme (I must admit, what you’ve said is appealing to me), but I still learning about Sage’s advantages (together with Bedrock), since a non-PHP FSE theme, seems like a wrong approach.
Let me explain a little about my project’s demands.
Site as it is right now, suffers from a terrible performances issues, all which are related to the current theme, which was done by unexperienced team.
I have done all I could think of, refactored parts and install wp-rocket, and even though, the sites loads super fast from server’s cache, Core Web Vitals notes are extremely low. There is no way to avoid rewriting it all.
I have 15 landing pages in the site. Most content isn’t dynamic. Its actually a very static website, with a catalog which gets rebuild every night using a cron job (that calls an api). It uses only 2 templates.
but you could quite easily create a non-PHP FSE theme
Why did you say that? i’ll appreciate if you’ll be able to explain your point a little.
// Another thing I love about Sage, is its Tailwind integration. I guess it can be done by using tailpress
