I’m running Trellis, Bedrock and Sage locally and finding it a great experience so far.
I have followed the guides on getting the theme to work on WP Engine and have managed to get it running on a WP Engine development server by following the “Deploying Sage on via FTP” guide and “Sage 9 on WP Engine” thread.
Basically what I have done is run “composer install --no-dev”, “yarn build:production”, uploaded everything except the “node_modules” folder and edited the view.php file to add “compiled’ => ‘/tmp/sage-cache’,”.
I’m planning to go with a super basic SFTP workflow for WP Engine based on what I’ve read setting up CI/CD seems finnicky and overkill for my current project.
I was hoping to ask if there is other people who go with this basic approach and if there is any gotchas to be aware of?
The site itself Im building is not complicated, and will likely only use ACF and a Forms plugin.
I was hoping to set it up in such a way that a non-tech user can login to the admin and update the WP Core and plugins themselves without breaking anything (I’ve never had an issue in the past with people doing this on underscores).
(I’m aware that this is not best practice, but don’t want to leave the client in a situation where they need me to do basic things like update plugins or wordpress).
