🌱 Getting Started

If you're looking to contribute or actively develop on GiveWP, welcome! We're glad you're here. Please ⭐️ this repository and fork it to begin local development.

Most of us are using Local by Flywheel to develop on WordPress, which makes set up quick and easy. If you prefer Docker, VVV, or another flavor of local development that's cool too!

✅ Prerequisites

  • Node.js as JavaScript engine
  • NPM npm command globally available in CLI
  • Composer composer command globally available in CLI

💻 Local Development

To get started developing on the GiveWP platform you will need to perform the following steps:

  1. Create a new WordPress site with
    as the URL
  2. cd
    into your local plugins directory:
  3. Fork this repository from GitHub and then clone that into your plugins directory in a new
  4. Run
    composer install
    to set up dependencies
  5. Run
    npm install
    to get the necessary npm packages
  6. Activate the plugin in WordPress
  7. Run
    npm run watch
    to start the watch process which will build the sass and script files and live reload using Browsersync

That's it. You're now ready to start development.

Available commands

| Command | Description | | :------------- | :------------ | |

    // Loads unminified core files define( 'SCRIPT_DEBUG', true ); ```
