Video Tutorial Request!

Dear Concerns,

We really need a Complete Video tutorial on how to develop a full Wordpress Theme/Project using the new Sage framework. Please make it happen as soon as possible. Roots is a wonderful thing and I started to fall in love with it.


I’m writing a book that will be out next month -

A screencast series for theme development [based on the book] is planned, but no ETA.


I hope this isn’t off topic. One thing I’m a little vague on, which I think ties into deployment, is how the git repository for my Sage-based theme ties in with the Sage master on GitHub. At the moment I have two origins; origin which contains the original master branch, and my-origin which has it’s own master and MikeiLL branches. Yesterday when some changes were made at origin/master I was able to pull and merge them into my branch, but it could get interesting if (when) there start being updates to the origin master that conflict with my versions.

@mZoo - what’s the problem? I keep mine set like: origin - points to my repository, upstream - points to roots/bedrock or sage. Every time change comes that is incompatible, I just analyze and resolve conflicts as per usual git-flow.

@ben - What’s the ETA on book? I look forward to it :smile:

@Johnny_Bit Well there ya go. Thank you for that.

It could be a very short segment. Possibly mainly references to Git docs.
Something along the lines of:

Clone the Sage Repo
Create your remote repo
Rename the remote origin to upstream

$ git remote rename origin upstream
$ git remote

Create a new remote named origin

$ git remote add origin
$ git remote

Push it to your repository

git push --all origin
git push --tags origin

Maybe it could include setting up ssh keys and authorization, merge basics.

Two to three pages could probably get a repository noobie up and running.


@Johnny_Bit Do you deploy based on the git repo and if so do you remove the dist folder from .gitignore?

@mZoo - hmm I don’t know how to answer that :wink: i use rocketeer (like capistrano, only in php) for bedrock deploys and i use mine deploy script for work that does not lend itself into full fledged rocketeer deploys (it’s rsync that copies only dist for example)

Awesome! Looking forward to it. Can you add some basic Git workflow tips as they would relate to working on and deploying a theme.
