QUESTION: What is GitHub best practice for creating a customized version of an ongoing project like Sage? I’m looking to create a custom version that ditches Bootstrap and some other key Sage features. Should I simply fork it and rename it to something similar? If so, how would I keep up with newer changes to the
I’m considering the possibility of creating a sort of Sage “spin-off” theme. Although I think Bootstrap is a wonderful UI Framework, I’m finding both it and Foundation to be a bit opinionated / cumbersome for large-scale WordPress templates. They’re wonderful when you need that quick win or you don’t feel like investing the time / money into developing custom UI; however, they can quickly lead to a messy codebase when working on large team projects.
With that said, I’m looking to create my own “spin-off” theme – a theme that combines the WordPress / PHP best practices of Sage with the CSS philosophy of something like Harry Roberts’ ITCSS or InuitCSS. My apologies if this is a bit of a “newbie” question; I tend to only work on private repos, but could see this being useful to others down the road.
